Pick your weapons then blast a path through Raccoon City in an objective-led shooter that plunges you deep into the zombie apocalypse. Shoot first, answer accusations later: it’s the only way you’ll survive.
Select your equipment at the menu screen before hitting the streets, tweaking your kit to complement that of your team. You might choose to play as Lupo, the assault specialist, so back yourself up by enlisting Vector, the close quarters combat expert, the medic Bertha and demolitions man Beltway.
As you collect intel and data packs, you’ll earn experience points which unlock new skills and weapons, including thermal vision, incendiary rounds and heavy machine guns. This lets you mould your operative to match your playing style – so if you prefer getting up close and lethal, Vector’s active camouflage ability will work a treat.
Prepare for terrifyingly varied enemies and work out attack strategies for each – ideally while taking cover. Look out for dynamite-laden zombies, whose payloads destroy them while attracting more of the undead. Lickers, the agile monsters which attack in packs, are vulnerable thanks to their exposed brains.
These are just the enemies you’ll see coming. Shocks will explode from nowhere, leaving your planning in shreds. Sometimes it’s best to squeeze the trigger and run.
