It’s a good time to be a fan of zombies, but in particular, the “Resident Evil” franchise. You’ve got yet another big-screen adventure coming up with Alice and company, another CG movie that takes place in its own universe on the way, and now, a brand spanking new third-person “Resident Evil” shooter game called “Operation Raccoon City”. The four-player co-op game is a first for the franchise, and a welcome one. Who doesn’t like blasting zombies with three friends in a dark room? Check out the first trailer for it below.
“Operation Raccoon City” will be set in the titular Raccoon city, with the time period somewhere between the events of “Resident Evil 2″ and “Resident Evil 3″ games. The plot has you and three friends battling zombies and government baddies as they try to cover up the zombie virus outbreak in the city. Needless to say, you have to blast your way through the undead and the living to survive.
Slant Six, the same people behind the “SOCOM” games, is doing “Raccoon City”. Look for it this Winter on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
