Operation Raccoon City is being developed by Vancouver-based Slant Six Games, Capcom have said that the new Resident Evil title will take the series in a "completely new direction" and is set to offer a style of gameplay "yet to be seen from the franchise". Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be a third-person, squad-based shooter set in the year 1998, during the events of the Resident Evil 2 and 3 titles.

 

It is September 1998 and the action centers once more on the ill-fated Raccoon City and the horrific consequences of the deadly T-virus outbreak from the Umbrella facility. With a cover up required, Umbrella orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors. Hearing of this plan, the US Government dispatches its own special forces to uncover any evidence that exposes the cause of the viral infection and Umbrella's actions. Players take on the role of an Umbrella Security Services soldier (U.S.S.), competing alone or in four player co-op in a battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City.

Fans - get excited, there will be a return of some of your favorite characters and landmarks such as Leon Kennedy and the Raccoon City Police Department.
