Today Editor in Chief Gary Steinman
of the PlayStation: The Official Magazine has revealed news of a new Resident Evil for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system alongside a video trailer below!
To quote: Who needs to wait for http://www.e3expo.com/? It's a month of massive reveals in the May issue of http://playstationthemagazine.com/.
We start with our cover story, http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2011/03/27/resident_evil:_operation_raccoon_city_confirmed.
First, a quick note about what Raccoon City is not. Raccoon City is not a survival horror game. Go on-let that sink in for a second. Yes, the granddaddy of survival horror breaks from the very thing that's defined it for over 15 years, instead delivering a wholly unique squad-based shooter experience, with the talented folks at http://slantsixgames.com/ now handling the development duties.
We saw the game in action and survived to tell a tale of shambling zombies, elite operatives, and a mission to "kill Leon." Indeed, nothing is sacred here, including the long-standing heroes of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resident_Evil. We've got more stunning details about the game, but you'll have to read them in our pages when the issue hits newsstands April 12.
Our other big feature: http://bethblog.com/index.php/2011/03/14/prey-2-planned-for-a-2012-release-stay-tuned-for-more-this-week/. (Don't worry if you don't remember the first game: it was an exclusive on that, uh, other system.) http://www.bethsoft.com/eng/index.php's adventure shooter impressed us with its creative gameplay and gorgeous Blade Runner-esque world, enough so that we jumped at the opportunity to give it a lavish six-page expose. Find out why we're so excited about this game when you pick up the May issue.
Rounding out the issue: a huge reviews section, including our surprising verdicts on two major shooters. Plus, previews on the heavy hitters, including UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception, http://www.ea.com/battlefield3, The Last Guardian and Batman: Arkham City. And then there's my personal fave in the issue: my interview with Supremacy MMA's beautiful brawler Felice Herrig.
E3 might be right around the corner, but we've got you more than covered until then-only in the pages of PlayStation: The Official Magazine.
