Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City release date

PC version "to follow" console versions.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City launches in Europe on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 23rd March 2012, Capcom has announced.

The PC Games for Windows version is "to follow", Capcom said.

Operation Raccoon City is an action third-person shooter with a four-player co-op campaign and eight player competitive multiplayer.

It is developed by Slant Six Games, the Canadian studio behind a number of SOCOM titles. RE: ORC represents the first time Resident Evil has been developed outside of Japan.

You play an Umbrella Security Service squad member sent in to Raccoon City to cover up the zombie outbreak. The story takes place across Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, and allows players to decide whether to kill Leon S. Kennedy in a what if? scenario.
