Operation Raccoon City’s multiplayer puts players up against each
other and the zombie horde with four new multiplayer modes. GamesRadar’s Lorenzo
Veloria and Dave Rudden from OXM try out Heroes mode where players take control
of popular characters like Leon, Claire, and Ada Wong. Check out the video
In all multiplayer modes, there are three opposing forces at odds
at any given time. Players control either the Umbrella Secret Service (USS)
operatives or a U.S. Military Spec-Ops team. Overcoming the other team with
more kills, G-virus sample captures, or getting to the chopper in the
respective mode will earn your team a win and experience to unlock weapons and character
abilities. But the opposite team won’t be your only concern. Standing in your
way are hordes of NPC zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons like Lickers, Hunters,
and the hulking Tyrant who attack both sides.
In addition to Heroes, Raccoon City will have three multiplayer modes.
Team attack is the standard team deathmatch, Biohazard calls for teams to
collect and store five G-virus samples before the other team, and Survivor will
have teams fighting for a seat on the last evacuation helicopter.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City hits stores on March 20 on PS3 and Xbox 360.
