Report – Resident Evil: Racoon City announced in US OXM

Thursday, 24th March 2011 16:19 GMT By Johnny Cullen

According to a StickSkills report, former SOCOM developer Slant Six’s much speculated Resident Evil effort has been unveiled in the latest edition of Official Xbox Magazine in the US.

Titled as Resident Evil: Racoon City, as rumoured beforehand, the game ses you on opposite sides of the spectrum as members of the Umbrella Security Services Squad rather than BSAA.

Unlike the latter, where you just take out zombies, gunning for Umbrella is all about destroying evidence and killing T-Virus survivors from the 1998 Racoon City outbreak.

There are two other factions to make a “three corner conflict” according to Capcom: US spec ops and bio-organic monsters created by Umbrella.

Your team is made up of four members: Vector, Beltway, Bertha, and Spectre. Depending on who you pick to play as, its goals and aims will vary.

The magazine adds that “you’ll be facing Umbrella-created horrors in between skirmishes” with each faction. It also says the game will allow you to “change the history of Resident Evil,” with many characters from the series making appearances. You’ll also be allowed to kill them.

The reports says that it’ll be coming to 360 and PS3 later this fall.

Racoon City will no doubt be one of many efforts this year from Capcom to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Resident Evil, having announced earlier today it would release HD versions of Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica this fall for PSN and XBLA.

Thanks, miladesn.

    what kind of a announcement is this? is not even an announcement, more of update and validation.

    I see no hype in this:/

    So basically is this the RE 6 people are banging on about?

    USSS, in Resident Evil 3 you had mercenaries and part of the group was a guy called Mikhail and Carlos. Is USSS the same group as them, part of them or different?

    Capcom should just reboot the series man.

    If I remeber well, the UBCS group is the one with Hunk in it, and the ones with the mission to retrieve the G-Virus from William Birkin. Supossedly, this USS (Umbrella Security Services) where the responsibles for implanting B.O.W.’s and other tests programs in Racoon City. It wasn’t just the rats that spread the virus in RE2.

    Sounds lame. I was hoping for a perfected Outbreak, and instead we get this team deathmatch BS where everyone plays as marine-soldier guys.

    playing as a clean up crew for umbrella potentially could lead for very interesting gameplay, whether that will actually happen is another story
