With lackluster reviews coming in from all over for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, it looks like it is time to set all sights ahead to Resident Evil 6. To help do that Capcom has released a brand new trailer for the game titled “Captivate” along with the trailer comes the news that the release date has always been moved up a month to October 2nd 2012! That is pretty awesome considering most times when a game’s release is moved, it’s back not up! Here is the trailer:
The next installment in the Resident Evil series is Operation Raccoon City and the latest trailer offers a sample of some of the carnage that will be on display, and let me tell you this preview definitely serves up plenty of HOLY SHIT moments in it’s 1:44 running time…Check it out below:
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City releases for PS3 & 360 on March 20th 2012!
Resident Evil: Raccoon City hasn’t even be released yet (March 2012) and news has just come through the wire that Resident Evil 6 has been confirmed! In fact, an announcement trailer is now online & it looks like the more action-horror oriented style that the Resident Evil series has become in recent installments will continue…..Check out the official press release and the trailer after the jump!

One of the selling points of the upcoming Resident Evil game is that you will be able to play as part of a few different factions. The game’s story itself is a re-telling of the events from Resident Evil 2 & 3. For me this is a welcome plot point since Raccoon City itself has always been my favorite setting for the RE series. Check out the trailer after the jump!

Looks like the longest running survival-horror franchise is finally taking steps to change with the times. We’ve already heard from various reports that run-and-gun will now be included in gameplay, however from the looks of this new character trailer, Resident Evil: Raccoon City will also have multiplayer modes.
Is this something you are pining for as a fan of the series? Do you think this will turn any long time fans of the series off, or help to bring new gamers in?
I totally missed out on Episode 3 being posted last week, so in today’s update I am including both the third and fourth episode, which happens to be the final episode of the Resident Evil web series!
Episode 3 Synopsis:
“Leon and Richard try to work out what is going on at the farm, as Philip’s condition slowly worsens (having been bitten by a zombie). Soon however it becomes clear that the zombie’s bite carries something far worse than they realize.”
Episode 4 Synopsis:
“Following the death of Philip, Leon and an injured Richard decide to make a break for it and escape the farm. Finally deciding that the undead are simply monsters they go out, guns ready, to seek their fate in the final chapter of Resident Evil: First Hour”
The Resident Evil online web series “First Hour” is back with episode #2……If you never caught the first episode when I initially posted it, you can find it HERE!
Episode 2 Synopsis:
Have the cannibal murders returned to Raccoon City? That may be the case for Leon Kennedy, Richard, and Philip as they find themselves trapped alone and at the mercy of a flesh-hungry undead horde.
With Resident Evil: Raccoon City coming out later this year, as well as a new HD remasters of Resident Evil 4 & Code Veronica, you might think Capcom deserves to take a small break from the franchise. Guess again! If this website is any indication http://www.umbrellasciences.com/ then Capcom is well on it’s way to creating even more Resident Evil content in the near future. Not much is known about what exactly the website is promoting. Is this in conjunction with Raccoon City which releases later this year? Is it the mere beginning stages of another new Resident Evil game further down the road? Not sure, however one thing is clear, the hit franchise shows no signs of slowing down. Upon visiting the website it will eventually re-direct you to http://www.insertedevil.com where you will be treated to a video of an unknown man telling you he has the secret to finally take Umbrella Corporation down, but he needs your help.
It sounds like this could be a scavenger hunt for prizes including possibly a copy of whichever Resident Evil game the website is promoting! Keep your eyes peeled for more in the future!
Whether you are a seasoned Resident Evil franchise player or you merely just heard of the series from my Zombies in Video Games piece, it has been one hell of a terrific run for the most part starting in 1996, and this franchise is showing no signs of slowing down. Along with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Resident Evil: Mercenaries, and Resident Evil: Revelations all releasing later this year, we are also being treated to a couple of stellar installments from the series past getting the HD treatment for the PS3 & Xbox360 systems. None other than Resident Evil: Code Veronica & Resident Evil 4(widely considered the best entry into the series to date). You probably recognize similar treatment given to other franchises in the past such as God of War & Final Fantasy, even the original Resident Evil game got an update a few years back for the GameCube system. If those are the models to hold up to, you can expect one hell of a presentation ready to be unveiled. Check out the Resident Evil 15th Anniversary trailer below:
