May 22, 2012, Vancouver, BC – Slant Six Games, a leading developer of video games, is pleased to announce the launch of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Spec Ops DLC Expansion Pack 2 including Missions 5-7 and three new multiplayer maps for release on Xbox360® and Playstation 3®.
The DLC Expansion Pack 2 allows players to experience the outbreak of the T-virus in the role of Spec Op members: Tweed, Dee-ay, Harley, Willow, Shona or Party Girl. Capcom® has described the missions 5-7 as “3 new missions for the Spec Ops team. The culmination of the Spec Ops mission is to find the truth behind the Raccoon City outbreak. The elite Spec Ops are closing in on Umbrella and the Umbrella Security Service squad, but new threats and challenges cause them to side track as they help other survivors including Claire Redfield and Sherry Birkin. As well as the ever present danger posed by the USS, zombies, Tyrants and Super Parasite Tyrants threaten to overwhelm you as Raccoon City descends into Hell."
Published by Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, and developed by independent games studio Slant Six Games, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is the first game in the Resident Evil franchise developed by a Western development studio. Capcom recently described the collaboration as a success due to the impressive sales figures “Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City has reached shipments of 2 million units. This shows the success of our decision to try the new approach of using an alliance with an overseas development company”.
Peter Doidge-Harrison, Lead Producer from Slant Six Games for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, praised the fans for the success in passing the 2 million unit mark in shipments “Resident Evil has a truly outstanding fanbase, the response to our game has been amazing from both longtime R.E. fans and those new to the franchise. We hope people enjoy this next installment as we think we have saved the best for last.”
