By Updated on

For those of you that are Resident Evil fans and are looking forward to the release of the latest installment; Operation Raccoon City we have a trailer here, courtesy of Gamespot, that is sure to get you excited. Almost 20 minutes of the gameplay is being teased throughout, while the Capcom representative talks us through a walkthrough of one of the levels while playing the game.

The first thing you will notice from the trailer is that the game is a third-person shooter like the other titles in the series, except this game has seemingly more freedom of movement when it comes to running around, aiming and shooting. The graphics also seem to be on par with any other games you would expect in this genre.

The gameplay in this particular video is all from the PlayStation 3 version and is just a build of the full game, which is still in development and won’t be released on consoles until March 23rd 2012. The game allows you to take control of one of six special Umbrella Security Service operatives, each of which has their own unique traits. The characters to choose from are Spectre, Vector, Bertha, Four Eyes, Beltway and Lupo.

During the trailer, which can be viewed below, the representative is playing single player campaign and takes control of Bertha, who is a female operative with the special ability to heal wounded squad members. You can also play in co-op mode with up to three other players online. The video also reveals a unique covering system that allows gamers to take cover during gun fights automatically behind walls and other objects they are near to. As you progress through the level you will be required to fire upon hordes of both zombies and other military trained enemies.
