Capcom’s first real trailer for Operation Raccoon City. Here we get a good look at the title and all of its third person shooter goodness. The trailer has a mixture of CG and actual in-game footage. You also get a look at the different squads you can play as in Operation Raccoon City.
Operation Raccoon City is a squad shooter, developed by some of the minds behind SOCOM. Players will not only have to take out the other squad, but hunt down series veterans like Leon S. Kennedy , and fend off the zombie onslaught. The title features a campaign that you can tackle solo, or with up to three friends.
The title is set for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with a scheduled Winter 2011 release. You can check out the latest trailer and screenshots after the jump!

Yesterday Capcom officially pulled the lid off of Operation Raccoon City in form of a debut trailer. Along with the trailer they detailed the title as a “third person shooter.” But haven’t the last couple Resident Evil titles been technically third person shooters? Does it play like a real third person shooter or stick to the Resident Evil style? According to Capcom’s Masachika Kawata, the title’s controls will feel more like a traditional third person shooter than the pseudo stop and pop controls of the past titles.
Despite being set around the time of Resident Evil 2 and 3, the title features an all new story. And as you could guess after the reveal of the players having to take down Resident Evil veteran Leon S. Kennedy, this story takes place in a parallel world. Through this they hope to refresh the story of Raccoon City. “We’ve covered a lot of Raccoon City’s story up to now, but I think putting the player on the side of the villains will give them a brand new experience. The main keyword during development is ‘Kill Leon.’”
So how long till we get the title in our hands? Masachika says the title is at about 45% in terms of completion. Capcom has said that we can expect a more complete version of the title at E3.
