Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City unveils a new trailer

Zombies should really consider forming a union of some sort. First, Dead Island gets people talking, and now a new Resident Evil will pit humans against the totally misunderstood undead antagonists. But assuming you can forget your morals and go a’ zombie huntin’, then the recently announced Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City may be the title for you.

You, and three other teammates—either AI-controlled or through co-op play—make up the Umbrella Security Forces, a private military group that shoots stuff at the behest of the company responsible for the zombie outbreak. Fans of the series might wonder how Raccoon City is the setting, what with it being mildly nuked and all, but the game will take place during the events of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. That will mean that Operation Raccoon City is the third title to be set during the same brief time period.

As you explore Raccoon City, you will face off against the biological weapons and zombies, as well as members of the U.S. Special Forces sent in to investigate. You will also run into familiar faces from the series, like Leon Kennedy, who had the unfortunate timing of beginning his first day of work as a Raccoon City cop on the day of the outbreak.

But beyond just being able to see Kennedy, you will be able to make decisions that will drastically alter the Resident Evil series. For example, you can walk up to Kennedy, and shoot him dead. This would make Resident Evil 4–which starred Kennedy—somewhat more slow paced.

Check out the teaser trailer below, and look for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime at the end of the year.
