L4D? Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City in action

With Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City hitting later this week in Europe, we take a hi-res look at the campaign of Slant Six’s addition to Capcom’s zombie favourite.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is built from the group-up for co-op and multiplayer, and features squad-based combat set in the timeline between Resident Evil 2 and 3. Raccoon City is about to be subjected to the G-virus, and you’re in the middle of a great deal of violence as a Umbrella Security Service operative.

The review embargo now up and we’ve seen a 2/5 from Joystiq, 4/10 from IGN and 4/10 from Eurogamer. In the video above, Sam Clay takes a look at the early stages of the shooter’s campaign, which is playable with up to three other people.

If story’s not your bag, there’s a bunch of other modes in ORC, which pitch Spec Ops against USS.

Operation Raccoon City is out on Friday in Europe and the US today for PS3 and 360. A PC version is to follow at an unspecified date.
