Meet the People Behind the Guns in This New Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Trailer

on February 1, 2012 5:30 PM

We know Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City focuses heavily on action and squad-based gameplay, which sets it apart from any other game in the series. We also know that the primary conflict in the game’s narrative will stem from the opposing, concurrent missions of the Umbrella Security Service and U.S. Special Ops Echo Six team. But what about the people behind the guns, grenades and other badass gadgets? Well, Capcom’s got you covered with the latest gameplay trailer for the survival horror franchise’scoming hi-def release.

Like any good heist film, Operation Raccoon City stars a cast of quirky specialists, each with his or her own unique attacks and skillsets. You’ve got your weapons guys, sneaky spies and medics portrayed in a way only Resident Evil can do so. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Pretty action-packed stuff, huh? This ain’t your momma’s Resident Evil, that’s for sure. Scott pretty much said so when he got some hands-on time with the game at last year’s New York Comic Con. And yes, the gas is still $1.15 a gallon in Raccoon City circa 1998. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind braving a zombie-infested metropolis for a break on my wallet.
