Operation Raccoon City is a collaboration between Capcom and Vancouver-based SOCOM studio Slant 6 Games and is scheduled for release this Winter.
Set in September 1998 during the original T-virus outbreak, ORC is described as "a true third person team based shooter experience" set within the "dark and sinister" universe of Resident Evil 2 and 3.
"With a cover up required, Umbrella orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors," Capcom's official blurb explains. "Hearing of this plan, the US Government dispatches its own special forces to uncover any evidence that exposes the cause of the viral infection and Umbrella's actions."
Players take on the role of an Umbrella Security Services soldier (U.S.S.), competing alone or in four player co-op in a battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City.
