New Outbreak File #2 screens break out

New enemies, new environments, new controls, now with added online features for European players

Resident Evil Outbreak File #2 has been exciting us since we discovered one portion of the game would be set in a zoo filled with T-Virus infected zombie animals - zoombies, if you're feeling a little bit punny.

And we got even more excited when we discovered that Outbreak File #2 would actually be online in Europe, unlike the wholly impotent first Outbreak title.

So this time you'll be able to fight your way out of Raccoon City accompanied by up to three other players (or you can still play on your lonesome if you have no friends/network adaptor). You'll probably need all the help you can get too, especially when you take a look at some of the new enemies making their undead debut in our screens. Shuffling zombies were bad enough - now you've got to contend with massive cockroaches and mental elephants with a bad case of leprosy.


The odds have been evened up slightly with some intelligent new controls. You'll be able to use the analogue sticks for Devil May Cry-style control, and you can finally move and aim your weapon at the same time.

Resi Outbreak File #2 will infect online PS2s everywhere this summer.
