Capcom Confirms New Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City & Demo Version of Resident Evil Revelations

Published

on

Capcom has announced that Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. In addition it was also confirmed that the forthcoming Nintendo 3DS title Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will ship with a playable demo of Resident Evil Revelations.

CapcomResident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a collaboration between Capcom and Vancouver-based studio Slant 6 Games. It is scheduled for release this winter. Since the launch of the first title 15 years ago, the Resident Evil series has enjoyed phenomenal success, selling over 45 million units worldwide to date. This latest offering will take the series in a completely new direction and offer a style of gameplay yet to be seen from the franchise.

Synopsis:
It is September, 1998, and the action centers once more on the ill-fated Raccoon City and the horrific consequences of the deadly T-virus outbreak from the Umbrella facility. With a cover-up required, Umbrella orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors. Hearing of this plan, the US Government dispatches its own special forces to uncover any evidence that exposes the cause of the viral infection and Umbrella’s actions. Players take on the role of an Umbrella Security Services soldier (U.S.S.), competing alone or in four-player co-op in a battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City delivers a true third-person team-based shooter experience set within the dark and sinister Resident Evil universe and a reinterpretation of the events depicted in Resident Evil® 2 and Resident Evil® 3. The setting of the Resident Evil universe not only provides a rich backdrop to the action but delivers a unique and thrilling triple threat battle. Zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W’s) add to the mix as players not only compete against an opposing squad but also tackle this third unpredictable element, creating a brand new style of gameplay and breaking the conventions of traditional team-based shooters.

Expect the return of original Resident Evil enemies, iconic landmarks such as the Raccoon City Police Department, and fan favorite characters including Leon S. Kennedy, who as a rookie police officer in Raccoon City is on your hit list to eliminate. Players will experience a retelling of classic moments from past titles Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 and watch the events unfolding from the menacing perspective of the Umbrella Security Service, giving fans the chance to rewrite the history of the Raccoon City outbreak.

In addition, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will deliver a number of competitive online multiplayer modes. Each one of these will provide a unique gaming experience thanks to the three-way combat among the Umbrella Security Service, US Special Ops, and the threat of zombies and B.O.W’s that could only exist in the deadly and twisted Resident Evil Universe.

Purchasers of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, scheduled for release in the coming months, will get an extra taste of horror thanks to the addition of a playable demo of Resident Evil Revelations. Set on board an ocean liner, the demo lets players take control of one of the full game’s characters, Jill Valentine, as she explores the ship’s dark interior, killing any mysterious creatures that emerge from the shadows. A brand new title built from the ground up for the Nintendo 3DS, further details on Resident Evil Revelations will be revealed at this year’s E3.

Exclusive: Uncrossing Rock Out in Get It From Me

Published

on

Alright rockers, we’ve got something just for you here! Today, we’re happy to premiere “Get It From Me” from new rock group Uncrossing, which features ex-Activator guitarist Jared Drace! The track comes from the band’s upcoming self-titled EP and it’s a moderately paced, sludgy, doomy track that features strong female vocals. If you’re in the mood for something to get you through the rest of today until the weekend hits, head on down and hit ‘Play’!

Drace tells Dread Central, “Musically, this was a fun one to come up with just because it’s a total mish-mashing of influences, well of MY influences at least. I mean there’s a solid Type O Negative-style chug for the verse and an outro riff that has a kind of Tool-vibe to it, and that’s not even mentioning the melodic beer commercial-like solo in the middle which is definitely a side-effect of listening to too much In Flames & Arch Enemy in my youth! But assembled together and with everyone putting their own stamp on it, we get something that ends up sounding like an Uncrossing song.

Uncrossing’s self-titled 3-track EP will be available for streaming and free download on February 9. You can follow the band on Facebook or Instagram.

If you want to check out the band, you can see them on February 10 at Lucky 13 in Brooklyn, NY.

Exclusive: Venture Into Black Mirror’s Black Museum With Cristobal Tapia de Veer’s “We Got a Miracle”

Published

on

One of the most anticipated shows to premiere last year (really late last year) was Netflix’s fourth season of Charlie Brooker’s “Black Mirror”. The show has amassed a dedicated following who voraciously devour each new morsel whenever the opportunity presents itself. For those who are eager for a new and different taste, we’ve got something rather special for you today!

Below is an exclusive stream of “We Got a Miracle”, a composition by Cristobal Tapia de Veer (The Girl With All the Gifts) for the “Black Museum” episode. Dark, brooding, and hypnotic, the muted opening enters a tribalistic rhythm with a muted piano piercing the pulsations with staccato stabs. Ghostly vocals hover later on, specters that appear briefly before fading quickly into the darkness. The track builds upon the tribal drums and enters the realm of dissonance without becoming offensive to the ears, culminating in a moment of near ritualistic worship.

The beginning, discovering the Black Museum, that was going to set the tone for the rest of the show,” explained Tapia de Veer. “The music morphed in many ways throughout the 3 stories, then goes back to where it started with the Black Museum, although with a sense of accomplishment, but also a sense of doom.

Black Museum is available as a digital download through Lakeshore Records’ Bandcamp.
