There is no new info about the plot of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. But the game takes place in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 Nemesis. Raccoon City is infected with the t-virus that has killed almost everyone there. But a part form Leon Kennedy being alive there is a team sent by Umbrella (Pharmaceutical Company that also makes biological weapons) to kill everyone that is not the dead to cover up any evidence of Umbrella crimes. But not everything goes to plan.
You get to change the story of Resident Evil by Killing Leon Kennedy or not. But this is up to the player if he/she what's to change the story or not.
GameplayThe gameplay has been called run-and-gun. Unlike any other Resident Evil game this time you can become a zombie. This only happens if the zombie grapples you and bites you with the infection. But nearby zombies won't try to kill you but you have only some time left before you become the dead. When you do become a zombie you won't be able to control yourself and will try to kill your teammates but you have to kill them so there can respawn. You can get help before you become a zombie know. If you bleeding bad them more zombies will try to kill you also. You must use team work in this game to survival. There is a single-player mode and a four-player co-operative. You be killing zombies, BOWs, Hunters, Lickers and Tyrants! But many did not like the gameplay. People have said the gameplay was way too mach like Army of two and SOCOM Special Forces. Someone said in a interview with Slant Six Games that 'Resident Evil is trying to welcome newcomers to there games' Because of Capcom trying to get newcomers many of said it's more like a Third-Person Shooter then a Survival Horror.
MTV Geek reported 'While the trailer was telling, the fact that Capcom teamed with "SOCOM" developer, Slant Six Games, proved to be more so. "Resident Evil: Raccoon City" feels exactly like a "SOCOM" game, from the controls to the animations to the passive cover system. It's "SOCOM" if "SOCOM" had zombies' One of the many things people where not happy about.
The multiplayer will have team-deathmatch with two teams. But you also have to be careful about the zombies when playing team-dathmatch. Team work is key so you have to work together to win. The zombies can be used as meat shields to stop people trying to kill you.
