Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will have extra modes that may STAR classic characters
Gametrailers was fortunate enough to hold an interview with Capcom’s own Mike Jones, one of the producers behind Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, at last week’s Gamers Day event. You can view said interview below, but I’m going to be going over some of the key things that were covered.
Firstly, we learn that the game will kick off with that classic scene where HUNK is sent to retrieve, or rather, steal, the G-Virus from William Birkin. This should definitely serve to to be quite an epic intro and a neat set-up to what will transpire throughout the game’s entirety: Umbrella trying to cover up their tracks, ceasing any chance of their involvement with the Raccoon City outbreak to be known.
We then learned a bit more about the infection feature in the game. Yes, you’ll be able to get infected by the T-Virus. If this happens to you, everything isn’t exactly going downhill (sort of). When infected you’ll simply be invulnerable in every area of your body, save for your head, in classic zombie fashion, of course. Basically, you’ll be able to enjoy a sort of limited invincibility mode of sorts, adding some layer of strategy to what would normally lead straight to death. Oh, and just make sure you have a partner nice enough to heal you nearby. If not, then, you’ll completely turn to a zombie and you could end up being a meat shield for your amiable buddies.
Lastly, it was strongly suggested that we may actually get a chance to play as some classic characters in the game’s extra modes that will be available. Capcom isn’t ready to talk about these extra modes just yet, but I really wouldn’t be surprised if a theory of mine from long ago comes to fruition.
