If you ever wanted to be one of the bad guys in Resident Evil, one of the Umbrella thugs, Capcom is now giving you a chance to do just that. In Resident Evil: Operating Raccoon City we go back to Raccoon – once again.
One of the top priorities on your kill-list: Leon S. Kennedy, fresh new member of the Raccoon police. The problem, you not only have to kill the opposing squad, you also have to get rid of hordes of zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W’s) … Nemesis?
Capcom revealed that it is going to be a reinterpretation of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, so yes, we can expect B.O.W’s like Nemesis and other mean creatures running around in Raccoon City. I wouldn’t be surprised to see multiple Nemesis-like creatures chasing you while you are also under attack by STARS members.

We previously reported about Resident Evil Raccoon City, so this announcement wasn’t really that unexpected.
Operating Raccoon City: Competitive Multiplayer
In addition, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will deliver a number of competitive online multiplayer modes. Each one of these will provide a unique gaming experience thanks to the three way combat between the Umbrella Security Service, US Special Ops and threat of zombies and B.O.W’s that could only exist in the deadly and twisted Resident Evil Universe.
