Here’s the first trailer for Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City. ORC will be revisting the Resident Evil 2 and 3 storylines from an alternate perspective, with appearances from the series’ most recognizable recurring characters and enemies. The title will be built around four-player co-op, and from this trailer it seems easy to draw strong comparisons to games like Left 4 Dead. Hell, with zombies and four player co-op it’s nearly impossible to not draw that comparison. It also seems that this might be the most action packed Resident Evil game we’ve seen in a while, as there’s quite clearly footage of people moving and shooting at the same time.
At the end of the trailer, we see that a familiar face will be returning to the Resident Evil series. We won’t spoil it for you, but this is all pretty exciting for fans, even if the changes in gameplay might wind up alienating some series stalwarts.
Check out the trailer (and who’s returning) after the jump.
Operation Raccoon City is currently slated for a winter release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
