Capcom has released a new trailer for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, the game being developed by Slant Six Games. For those not in the know, Operation Raccoon City puts you in the shoes of Umbrella operatives sent into Raccoon City during the time-frame of RE2 and RE3 to eradicate any evidence of Umbrella’s involvement in the viral outbreak. What this means is that you’ll be rewriting the lore of the Resident Evil franchise in a squad-based shooter, “What If” type of story.
This latest trailer puts that “What If” concept front and center. Watch as a group of Umbrella black ops troops try to kill Resident Evil 2 star Leon Kennedy immediately after he arrives in Raccoon City. It seems they may have succeeded; however, we all know Leon Kennedy doesn’t go down that easy. His beautiful hair won’t allow it.
