Resident Evil: Raccoon City Heroes Mode Confirmed, Trailered and Screenshoted

Capcom has confirmed Heroes Mode for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City today.

Heroes Mode is a four v four multiplayer element allowing players to take the role of a number of classic Resident Evil characters. Leon S. Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Hunk and Ada Wong are confirmed.

One team plays as the good guys while the other team plays as the bad guys. They both have to blast each others faces off while dealing with infected nasties that swarm all over the maps. Sounds like it could be fun, don't it?

To accompany the news, Capcom has also released a new trailer and some fresh screens. Resident Evil: Raccoon City is out in March next year.

Still not decided on this yet. Might wait for the reviews.

@2 I didn't know you'd played it already.

Why does it say "One team plays as the good guys and the other team plays as the good guys"?

That looked a lot better than RE5's Versus mode. Still not sure what to make of the game overall though. Might pick it up and give it a try when it's out.

The fact that Slant Six is making this worries me. After all, they made SOCOM Confrontation, and we all know how that turned out. Resident Evil isn't supposed to be a third person action shooter, even if Resident Evil 5 deviated more towards action; 5 maintained the slower paced control scheme. Operation Raccoon City just looks like a typical third person shooter. That said, I'm anxious to play it, if for no other reason than because I'm a huge RE fan.

As for Heroes, those voices are awful. Where's Paul Mercier for Leon? Where's Jill's VA? I can't tell if that's Sally Cahill doing Ada, but if it isn't, they fucked up big time.

Interesting addition. Still questioning the game, if done right could be good but knowing its being developed by slat six and supervised by capcom I'm not too hopeful.

Resident evil or not, gameplay seem fun and concept seem fun too, I don't regret my $39 pre-order yet. I'm sure I will enjoy.

damn well better have Jill Valentine. She's a sexy beast in resident evil. Wish they made another game with her as the main character besides 3. (I don't count umbrella chronicles or resident evil 5 DLC)

Anyway, game is looking great. Keep up the good work capcom.

Lol, glad I watched the trailer before saying the pilot guy is from the first 2 (read the comments before grabbing my iPod to say it was Brad, iPod has sign in details saved and PS3 browser is fine for checking the news but not great with comments).

Well, probably too much info, but yeah, it's a buy for me, CE is awesome looking.

#25 seriously? now your complain is about the characters? (duh..what did you expect from haters...) i don't care who you are, look at yourself now and keep a photo for yourself, after 5 or 10 years look again at yourself and the old photo, and complain about how you look not the same as before...

@25 Yeah, I agree. Slant Six, if you're listening, could we please have the pixelated PSOne versions of these characters instead of these stupidly updated PS3 graphics?

In all seriousness, I cannot see any difference from Capcom's already updated designs of these characters in the Resident Evil Chronicles games. I have no problem with the designs and I'm definitely looking forward to this game.

But has the character Lone Wolf appeared in a previous game? I remember Hunk but not Lone Wolf...

I just hope they haven't sacrificed the campaign to accommodate the multiplayer.

On the up side least you can walk and shot at the same time now.

@2 + 25

i really dont know what your problem is, but this game is looking more impressive with the trailers that keep coming out

i know im looking forward to it, as so are the other true RE fans, so stop bitching and go back to MW3 :)

on another note the characters look pretty good updated, the only one in question is in fact Jill

and @27 , not sure about lone wolf first ive heard of him too

@19 As I can see you didn't played resident evil 2 right? If you say yes, then you should replay it again just to think twice before posting stupidity.

As a fan of the franchise I have to buy this game but I'll wait for reviews.. RE4 and 5 disapointed me so much that I'll be on my guard with their new titles from now on

this looks amazing. though i wish the limited edition art was the standard cover for al versions of the game. the steel case doesn't fit well with my collection. i'd rather it just include all future dlc/add ons for free! buying it brand new should grant you more than those who buy it used. other than a steel book and very nerdy collectibles. battlefield 3 came with free dlc and battlefield 1943. how about resident evil 4 hd at a discount at the very least?

@29. First off I love your mw3 smack (always funny). Secondly I haven't liked what I've seen of the mp so far. I guess I'll just have to give it a try and then decide. Fallout 3 doesn't look like much in a trailer either but that one of the best ever IMO.

@35 , my pleasure, people who give a game a bad name only through 3 mins of trailer shouldnt place a comment really ... i hardly think they have played an RE before

even though people havnt got a look on this ... if people do look at what the games about and who the player is actually playing as, they'll see it is more of an action game over a survival, although the balance is at a much more pleasing 60-40 action due to the return of the infected zombie and lickers, if we cast our minds back to the original RE's the character just gets spawned into it not paticularly equipped well, RE1 the chopper disappears rendering the team nable to prepare, RE2 leon doesnt expect a zombie outbreak ... neither does claire which explains their insufficient preparation, RE3 jill is at her apartment over being in a police armoury

Here now in RE Raccoon city, its an Umbrella USS Delta team where they know the situation and hence allows them to make the preps needed to take down whatever comes their way, i dont mind this idea really
