Seems we can't have a big game launch without downloadable content on the horizon. And hey, extra stuff is a good thing.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City hits store shelves next week (March 20), and Capcom has confirmed the game's first batch of DLC, which should appeal to long-time franchise followers.
It's a new mission that puts you in control of Special Ops soldiers, and you will revisit the events of Resident Evil 3 . Remember Jill Valentine going up against the seemingly invincible Nemesis? I still remember having to get the hell away from that thing whenever it showed up early on…either move or die. I'm sure it'll be a little different this time around, though, as Operation Raccoon City isn't survival/horror; it's third-person, squad-based shooter by SOCOM developer Slant Six.
Anyway, this DLC will be available on April 10 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 so if you're planning to pick up the new action title next week, you might also want to plan on picking up the Jill/Nemesis mission. Especially 'cuz it's free . Either that, or you can wait for Resident Evil 6 in November. It's not really old-fashioned survival/horror, either, but at least it isn't squad-based.
