Earlier on we showed you the very first teaser trailer for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City after the game was officially unveiled earlier on this week. After having watched it, do you agree that Capcom seem to be going down the ‘Left 4 Dead’ route with this game?
If you missed the trailer, check it out again below for a refresh. While we don’t get any clear cut gameplay, we do get snippets of cut-scenes, and the angles and content seem to suggest that this game will be a straight up zombie shooter surival game, just like Left 4 Dead.
Rather than playing from a first-person perspective, it looks to a third-person style game and if it turns out that the gameplay is indeed similar to Left 4 Dead – would you still buy it or not? Left 4 Dead is a great game of course, but there will be a fair amount of you who believe Capcom shouldn’t go down this route with the famous Resident Evil franchise.
However, after Resident Evil 5, we wouldn’t mind a drastic shake up in gameplay to keep things fresh and since four man co-op has already been confirmed, we don’t really mind how they play this one out. Having said that, if Valve go ahead and announce Left 4 Dead 3 at E3 2011 in June, things could get a lot more tasty between the two franchises.
Have a look at the trailer for yourself and let us know your thoughts on it.
