"A collaboration between Capcom and Slant Six Games, Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City takes the iconic series, which has sold over 47 million units worldwide, in a completely new direction. A third person team based shooter experience set within the dark and sinister Resident Evil® universe, the title is a reinterpretation of the events depicted in Resident Evil® 2 and Resident Evil® 3. The unique setting of the Resident Evil universe not only provides a rich backdrop to the action but delivers a unique and thrilling triple threat battle. Players not only compete against an opposing squad but also tackle a third unpredictable element, zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W’s), breaking the conventions of traditional team based shooters. Expect the return of original Resident Evil enemies, iconic landmarks, and fan favorite characters including Leon S. Kennedy who, as a rookie police officer in Raccoon City, is on your hit list to eliminate.

Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City features a compelling single player campaign mode where players take on the role of a member of the Umbrella Security Service, in an attempt to destroy all evidence of Umbrella’s involvement in the t-Virus outbreak. The title will also deliver a brutal online competitive multiplayer experience. Players can engage in an eight player team versus battle across four different online modes, choosing to take the side of Umbrella or the opposing government forces, the US Spec Ops. An additional versus mode exclusive to the Xbox 360 - Nemesis Mode, will be available to download at launch for 320 Microsoft Points."
