Resi Evil Online movie released

Frightening

Capcom has released some tantalising footage of what is surely the most important evolution in survival horror games to date, Resident Evil Online. Although the publisher revealed a few details last November, this is the first time we've really seen how the game looks - and it looks very good indeed! Detail wise the video portrays it as a slightly fuzzier looking version of the RE Cube remake, with intricately detailed levels and character animations. In the three-minutes-thirty-seven of the video we get to see characters limp, stagger, crawl and even drop kick zombies clinging onto their legs.

Teamwork will obviously be a factor, although the video only really shows the groups (which, you'll remember, can be made up of any of several random Raccoon City occupants) in action situations. Enemies though take the form of the usual zombie legions coupled with snivelling former mutts, giant scorpions and tongue flicking horrors eerily reminiscent of Paul Anderson's big screen Evil. It's looking inspiringly horrific, and we're still hoping for a pre Christmas release date.

The video can be downloaded in two flavours, direct from Capcom. The larger of the two is 22.8MB, and can be found here. The smaller version at half the resolution can be found here.
