Nowadays, it is quite common for PC games to get significant delays compared to their console counterparts. It should come as no surprise then that Capcom’s upcoming co-op shooter, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, has received a two month delay. The console version will be released on March 23 with the PC version arriving on May 18.
Although no reason was given, Capcom had mentioned that the PC version will include NVIDIA 3D Vision support which is one possible explanation for the delay.
Operation Raccoon City will take place within the timeframe of Resident Evil 2 with players taking control of either Umbrella soldiers or a Spec Ops group, each with a different story. The Umbrella soldiers are tasked with covering up the corporations involvement in the viral outbreak, while the Spec Ops group must uncover and expose Umbrella’s involvement.
The game will feature a cast of six playable characters, Vector, Beltway, Spectre, Four Eyes, Lupo and Bertha, each with unique abilities such as stealth and healing. Along with this, the game will feature a “Hero Mode” which allows players to play as series classics like Leon, Jill, Ada, and Hunk.
