Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City aka Left 4 Evil...and RE4 Re-release



http://stickskills.com/news/1556/fir...city-unveiled/

Quote:
Rumors have been floating around for quite some time about Slant Six, former developer of SOCOM, working on a brand new Resident Evil title. Today, we're here to officially validate those rumors along with giving you the very first detail on the upcoming title.

Hitting this Winter, gamers will be able to get their hands on Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Our friends over at the Official Xbox Magazine have the official cover story this month, and while we'll list a few details, you'll have to pick up their May issue to find out everything!

The game takes place in 1998, a time where Resident Evil fans already know what's set to take place. The title lets you enjoy the series from a new perspective, as the men and women who are technically responsible for it all.

Rather than continuing the zombie slaying antics of BSAA agents, you're taken back to the original outbreak "that underscored both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis."

The game doesn't require any crazy amounts of knowledge of the past titles or characters involved in the series. The title opens up to a "quartet of new faces". Essentially, you're playing as members of the official Umbrella Security Services squad.

Operation Raccoon City is a team-based shooter allowing four members of the USS team to destroy all evidence of the ongoing outbreak. Along with slaying the zombies, you're looking to "kill pretty much every survivor possible".

The gameplay is described as "dirty", and the series will feel much darker than it has up to this point.

The game features three factions that Capcom has stated make up a "three-corner conflict". The other two factions are the US Spec Ops, who are there to repel the USS, and the "bio-organic weapon monsters (BOWs) created by Umbrella.

The USS team is made up of the following characters: Vector, Beltway, Bertha, and Spectre. Depending on which character you choose, the responsibilities that you're asked to do within your team will variate.
Hunk, first seen in Resident Evil 2 as a hidden character, is the inspiration behind the USS team.

"Whichever team you play on, you'll be facing Umbrella-created horrors in between skirmishes with each other".
Zombies in the game can sense you in three different manners: sight, sound, and smell.

A situation is described in the game where Vector cloaks himself to stir up previously slumbering zombies to use against the Special Ops military foes.
Quite a few scenarios in the game aren't "all about headshots". A quote in the article states, "It's about shooting the other soldiers - manipulating the, making them bleed."

The game will take you through a number of familiar areas if you're a Resident Evil junkie who remembers your journey to Raccoon City.
Operation Raccoon City, depending on how you play the game, will give you the option to "change the history of Resident Evil". Not only will you have the chance to meet and interact with various characters from the series, but you'll even have the opportunity to kill them.

One of th mottos repeated to OXM throughout the demo was "Kill Leon". It's also stated that if you choose to represent in the game as the Special Ops team, that you'd more than likely have the goal of trying to save Leon Kennedy.

Slant Six or Capcom won't reveal if any other characters will be playable in the title just yet, but it'd make sense to see quite a few big cameos.
The title will still see players relying on collecting herbs to heal from any attacks you may suffer. You won't need to hoard any herbs, but they'll still benefit you to collect them throughout the game.

"This is not a one-versus-one game where you've got one clip full of ammo and zombies on you. If you've ever thought of those times in an RE game when you thought, 'I'd wish I had a big gun', that's what this game is. It's not fair to give people big guns, then take all the ammo away."
One of the pictures in the article showcases a zombie being used as a "meatshield".

Operation Raccoon City allows players to earn XP for kills, with these points helping you survive the onslaught, and to help to encourage you to anihilate everything in your path.
The XP will allow you to earn new abilities, such as Vector's cloaking skill, and new weapons.

Tyrants will most definitely be included in the title.
There's a ton of details listed above, but there's even more listed in the May 2011 issue of the Official Xbox Magazine. Don't forget to be on the lookout for the issue to hit store shelves to get even more details on Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City!
Resident Evil 4 is also getting an HD (it's only upscaled) re-release:

http://img152.imagevenue.com/img.php...d_122_18lo.jpg
http://img194.imagevenue.com/img.php..._122_381lo.jpg

It will also include Resident Evil: Code Veronica, which will feature new lighting effects:

...And, just as it figures, we here in the States will be getting nerfed on the physical release

Now that Resident Evil is getting farther away from it's horror origins, it's starting to feel more like a boring action game rather than a survival horror. And I guess it's safe to say that it's sad that I still have yet to get my own copy of RE4 despite it's countless rereleases

That's not necessarily true. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and CODE: Veronica still gave off that horror-atmosphere the previous titles had, but 4 & 5 gave it a different...actiony..feeling that I personally didn't like at all. Now that Operation: Raccoon City's coming out, we can finally see the story from a different point of you. Call me an RE Fanboy, but I never get tired of watching / playing these games from different points of view. Resident Evil: Outbreaks gave us all that different perspective. When 4 & 5 came out, I started to feel that all hope was lost and that the series would be changed forever. Operation: Raccoon City hopefully changes all that, and it also sheds some light on some things previous game never had the time to cover. Not only is this coming out, but the Mercenaries also contain information that's information to a die-hard fan, and Capcom plans to fully Reboot the WHOLE series.

Well, I've only recently played the RE series, so I'm still not familiar with the overall franchise's premise, but from what I know 0-3 mostly focused on horror, while 4, 5 and most games afterwards focused on being action games, which I'm not to bothered about, but the I think the biggest problem isn't that it's no longer focused on Horror like it originally was, but that it's trying to emulate what's popular, and that come's off of most people as unoriginal/uncreative, despite the fact that it's already focused on Zombies

And Resident Evil's getting rebooted? Aren't you thinking of Devil May Cry?

Ahh. Well once you play them over and over, you begin to notice where they could've added some new horror themes and less actions sequences. Just my opinion though.

And nope, I don't have the link on the actual interview, but Capcom has mentioned that they've considered a full reboot. I'll have to find that source.
