Capcom Co. this week demonstrated Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City for Sony Corp.’s Playstation 3 and Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

The current build allowed users to choose a character from Umbrella Security Services to battle the outbreak in Raccoon City.

Aim controls were solid, with users able to take out mobs of zombies at all angles. In addition to traditional fire and grenades, users can deploy a powerful melee attack that is specific to each character.

The build included four-player co-op action in which a successive number of enemies came to the field, beginning with a barrage of Hunters.

The graphics engine held at 30 frames-per-second with strong detail and the ability to render a mass of enemies. Lighting and atmosphere was consistent with prior Resident Evil entries, and special effects like fire produced a glow to the immediate area.

Developed by Capcom and Slant 6 Games, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a third-person team-based shooter set between events in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3.

In the game, users take on the role of an Umbrella Security Services soldier to destroy all evidence of an outbreak and eliminate survivors.

The final game will include four-player co-op functionality and competitive online multiplayer modes between Umbrella Security Service, US Special Ops, and zombies and B.O.W enemies.
