Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Multiplayer Modes
The next upcoming Resident Evil will be quite different than previous installations. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be a third-person shooter action video game. It will still have some horror elements, but not as compared to the first three Resident Evil games, originally released on the Playstation. Operation Raccoon City will take place during the time of Resident Evil 1 & 2. However, this time you will be part of the Umbrella Security Services unit that is sent into Raccoon City to cover up the T-Virus incident that caused the zombie outbreak. As this elite team of soldiers working for the Umbrella Corporation, you are to cover up all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any remaining survivors in Raccoon City.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be heavily focused on single-player, but the game will feature a few multiplayer game modes as well. Also, the Campaign of Operation Raccoon City will be 4-player online Cooperative.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Multiplayer Game Modes
This game mode is all about gathering the most points through kills. Except instead of there being only two competing teams, there will be three; Umbrella Security Services, US Spec-Ops, and the Raccoon City Survivors. On top of that, there will be zombies that will attack every team. Which ever team earns the most kills wins.
Return the G-Virus Samples to your base while also fighting off the other teams. This game mode will be focused on teamwork more than Team Deathmatch.
Fight off the zombies until the helicopter arrives, only one problem -- there is limited space on the helicopter so not every one will be able to escape.
This is a 4 versus 4 multiplayer game mode that allows you to play as iconic Resident Evil characters such as Leon S. Kennedy, Ada Wong, Hunk, and Jill Valentine.
Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City Release Date
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be released on March 20, 2012 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3. While this game is kind of abandoning the atmospheric horror element, it seems promising with multiple online game modes that feature zombies as another factor in the mayhem.
Note this is not the first Resident Evil game to feature multiplayer game modes (RE5 had online multiplayer), however, Operation Raccoon City seems like it will have a more refined multiplayer experience than Resident Evil 5.
