A new trailer has just been released for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Now we know where all these recent screen-caps were coming from. You can check out the trailer below and be sure to stay tuned for our breakdown of it later tonight.
Looks more like cod than Resident evil what have they done to this great franchise??
the fact that this isn't cannon and has nothing to do with the resident evil story already makes me feel kinda meh towards this game if someone gave this to me id play it but it really doesn't look like something i would want to pay for
At least we got Revelations to look forward to. But this game seems interesting, multiplayer should be pretty crazy what with all the BOWs running wild.
All I have to say is wait and see. We never had a tactical versus game with zombies and shi* being a secondary threat. What turns me off is Slantsix reputation for being average. I don't mind that this is nothing like resident evil, because Resident Evil 4 is also nothing like Resident evil. And imo RE4 is the best one. So i'll wait and not write it off, hopefully a demo can let me see how good or bad it is. Also remember this, it took Guerilla games 6 games before they got a really good one out, that was Killzone 2. Give S6 a chance they might just pull it off one of these days. Second I said this the other day "I would like to point out that RE1 and 2 had different versions of what happened. The accepted parts get brought into new games. For example in RE1 Chris and Barry could both die. However the accepted and put forward cannon version is they live. This game could be the same, you fail to kill Leon or succeed, however the cannon version will be you failing to kill." Also, another thing to remember, the Us army was doing this in RE, it was off screen, Umbrella sent 4 tyrants into Raccoon city not just the 1 following Leon in RE2. 3 of them where to fight the Us soldiers. I also like the idea of a common enemy just jumping into the games, the tyrant in the trailer looks like it will be a menace to all. I was wondering how they were going to put it forward that the Tyrant would attack both sides(since USS and Tyrants are both umbrella), but I suppose they don't have that much control over these type of tyrants, only nemesis type can be told exactly what to do(which was: KILL STARS)
is this a full blown RE game like RE6 or some kind of spin off
@I_find_it_funny its a spin off that has nothing to do with the story at all (not canon) its a new spin on RE
socom mechanics battling zombies and how is this a bad thing?
They felt the need to appeal to this generation's uprising of shooter fans I guess...
So its multiplayer game. No single player, Socom gameplay. WTF grahpic? So bad?
this looks like SOCOM 4, LOL!
There is something I still dont know about this game.. is it an HD remake or its a complete new game?
Sorry but from everything that was RE1 walking down the mansion halls with leaping dogs, hunters, and giant snakes to this...all I have to say is what a shame. I'll probably buy this game and play it simply because I have been a RE fan from day one back in 1997 or so, but what a great way to sell out a survival horror franchise, what a shame!
what is this shit?? this isn't resident evil lol,capcom you dissapointed me sooo much!!!
...who lols when they are dissappointed?
looks like Capcom hasn't gotten the message still...
parts of that looked something like MGO type gameplay...
I didn't see anyone finding items in the trailer. I guess Capcom will be charging us for green herbs and ammunition ^_^
WTF is this S**t, call of duty: Modern Zombiefare??? it was not meant to be a joke...
Poor Leon fans.
The official Playstation magazine has a write up on it.. The game is set over 4 days following the initial outbreak in 1998 and covers events from RE1 & RE 2. It's a squad based shooter.. primary playing mode is co-op campaign, there is competitive multiplayer included too. Zombies react to blood and will always seek out the weakest link in your squad. You play as one of the Umbrella Security Service - 4 different team members. Vector (recon), Beltway (demolitions), Bertha (female medic) & Spectre (surveillance) each has different skill set - Vector can turn invisible to sneak past enemies. Also in the game are US Special Forces who are investigating Umbrella.
invisible ..... Why the hell didn't Wesker use this kind of tec If he combined that with his super human abilities maybe he wouldn't of died
No You are NOT Resident Evil
wow.. so exciting...z..fakjfadjlf oh danm i fell asleep.
guys it the MP footage showing how everyone can be fighting
Capcom have done the impossible, they have taken a great franchise and turned it into vampire rain!! seriously I wasn't to impressed with what I saw, also it looked a bit like an NGP game (not that that's a bad thing graphically).
Please explain to me... http://i52.tinypic.com/25r1...
RIP RE and DMC crapcom have lost any shred of respect i might have had for them . now they just ruin everything they touch. just do us all a favour and sell all your franchises to konami and shut your company down.
that might be a good idea. i mean really... why are they making these 'new' games and calling them with names of existing games? When i hear 'resident evil' this is not what i have in mind! sure the story is interesting to find out what happened but why do i have to play a completely different game-play? Outbreak was the only Resident Evil game i accepted in regards to change.
another fucking crap by capcom
you people will complain about anything, its a resident evil game,,, if the reviews suck dont buy it...plain and simple.. every resident evil has been different than the last. DEAL WITH IT...
objection OBJECTION MOTHERFU#KING OBJECTION! DO NOT P!SS IN MY EAR AND TELL ME IT'S RAINING. THIS IS NOT A RE GAME. *takes a deep breath* I apologize, sorry about that outburst. this is the problem with modern gamer, they take everything lying down. I don't need reviews to tell me this will suck. Capcom, take socom out of resident evil.
U guys jump to conclusions to fast wait for single player footage .they trying a new online style to the game players can be spec ops, B.O.W.S, UMBRELLA, and zombies . Im not cod fan but im interested in this game
I say we don't buy it so Capcom dosen't give us more crap or give one of their great franchises to a crap developer I mean if we just buy it to try the game or give it a chance they'll just see that as a successful sale, even though you could find it shit at the end, and they'll just milk it by giving us sequels that we didn't ask for.
Its not Resident Evil-WTF?Ps3/X360? Socom- This Resident much better: http://www.youtube.com/watc... This Gamecube!
i'll be the first to say that i am actually looking forward to this game. yes it isnt a cannon resident evil and yes it is a spin off but who the hell cares its something NEW if resident evil needs ANYTHING it is something new. im tired of the re5/4 gameplay this is a breath of fresh air and people should acknowledge it accordingly.
they really need to make a re based of umbrella story
I say we make a game called (Don't give Capcom money).
I already pre-ordered my collector's edition copy
DIE CAPCOM DIE Oh wait, they already have.
If they die, you won't ever get the Resident Evil you want. Ever.
He is not going to get it period. Shinji Mikami made Resident Evil. He is the father of RE, Capcom is trying but they just suck really bad.
I guess people want RE5 online where your character can't move an shoot at same time. It look way better then Socom confrontation tip my hat to S6. Because i was expecting terrible animations an bad graphics.
We don't want a RE5 online where your character can't move an shoot at same time We don't want a Resident evil multiplayer at all. If Capcom want to create a l4d style teammate multiplayer game with zombies then fine but don't slap Reasident evil on it and give it to a crappy american developer so it can sell
just because you don't want a online doesn't mean whole gaming community as a whole don't
I got RE5 Gold edition on my PS3, I'll be getting RE4 and CVX on my PS3. And I'll be getting this on my PS3 all the negativity surrounding this game is hilarious, some of you retards need to know what a spin off is.
u said u're getting them on PS3? for PS3? with PS3? just making sure :) /s
i am interested edit: apparently 2 people doubt my interest
No no no no no ! I want the Resident Evil back that I loved.
are you f-ing kidding me??!! this is socom with zombies!! slant six has ruined resident evil series even more!!
resident evil isnt ruined, this game is a spin off so it ddoesnt even count. revalations looks scary and has the old RE feeling back in it so stop worrying and jumpin the gun b4 u shoot urself in the foot by dismissing this series because u didnt like re5
Whilst I agree with others that the game shows little resemblance to Resident Evil, I must admit, the game certainly looks intriguing. It's an interesting twist on the franchise and one I sure like the look of. People need to remember, this is a Spin-Off, and spin-offs are supposed to show the franchise from a different perspective. I look forward to seeing more, and I like the Nemesis-like enemy, I'm intrigued as to how the hell he'll go down. Also, the game seem's to offer multiple circustances, with Zombies, Soldiers, Classic Characters and Bosses as of yet confirmed. I don't know what it is, but I'm liking everything I see. Capcoms announcements today have been very good in my eyes...
FKU!!! Let me play as Leon and kick yo ass bastards.
why don't they just continue the series/story, that's what got me into the game in the first place; RE:Directors Cut, RE 2, etc......
This isnt your typical RE but its worth a shot its not like they called it RE6. We also get an HD version of RE4 this fall so stop bitching people.
donotwantdonotwantdonotwantdon otwant! What happened to the good old days, where Resident Evil 4 was the best game ever made and every genre didn't have shooter elements implemented into them?
no HUNK!? They could have used him, but they didn't (so far). I am even more disappointed now with it now.
This is probably a VR mission a la MGS, this probably explains the whole "ZOMG Leon's dead!?!?" thing going on
I think using a zombie as a human shield might not be such a good idea.
hmmmm not impressed i know its a spin of but when i saw the graphics i had to laugh. this is going to suck.
Fuck, it's awfull
IMO- this is probably the best point in the RE series to go back to...Raccoon City was the epicenter and start of it all. RE2 was a great game. Looks to me that they are starting to move away from the resident evil we know to the resident evil movies instead with some of the over-the-top stuff. I don't like the instant camo as its just unnecessary and probably will be annoying to deal with if you aren't playing as those characters. I'd really like to get my hands on a demo for this though just out of curiosity for it. I wasn't a fan of RE5 but this has me at least a little interested... Wasn't there supposed to be a Resident Evil MMO? I thought that sounded legit...and I'm not even into MMO's.
People should stop worrying and take it for what it is... a spin off set in the same game world! If it was Resident Evil 6 then I could understand the complaints, but it is not... so chill out! Who can tell if it is any good? From that trailer alone there were bits that seemed interesting and bits that were not... I will just wait and see! You don't have to buy it because it has Resident Evil in the title.... if it is not for you, then just don't buy it and wait for Resident Evil 6! Personally I have not been able to enjoy a Resident Evil game since 1 and 2, mostly due to outdated and clunky controls, I tried to get into Resi 4 on Wii, but the control set up (not using trigger to shoot mainly) annoyed me and detracted from the game. But when they make a Resi game that I can enjoy again then I will get it.... but until then I aim to keep my complaining to a minimum.
