Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Multiplayer Modes

Updated on January 14, 2012

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

Team Deathmatch
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.

Survivors Mode
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.

Heroes Mode
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.

Do you think it was a good idea for CAPCOM to release a resident evil game that is focused on action more than horror, even though there will be minor elements of horror, but not like older Resident E

      The game is cool. It is a new type of game style it's not but just different. Although there are a lot of other problems like glitches, texture problems, and AI difficulties. I like the action but I think there could be more Horror fit into this. I like the new style its more fast pace but it would be nice to have some slow horror parts. The online is also really cool. It's a change as well but just like the campaign it has problems. I don't have a problem with it but it needs some work for it to be a great game. Also the game is short I would have liked to see a longer story like the other games.
