- 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 E3
? It's a month of massive reveals in the May issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine
We start with our cover story, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
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 Slant Six
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 Resident Evil franchise
. 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: Prey 2
. (Don't worry if you don't remember the first game: it was an exclusive on that, uh, other system.) Bethesda
'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, Battlefield 3
, 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.
