Raccoon City: Elite weapons revealed and new Reaction time challenge

Plus video hands on with Heroes mode!

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is just over a month and a bit away now and with the countdown clock ticking, we've just unveiled a new Elite weapons video which shows you some of the bonus DLC you get for pre-ordering the game.

Head on over to our Operation Raccoon City Reaction Time challenge page to get involved. Therein you'll find details and footage of the new Perforator Shotgun, a chunky double-barrelled pump action affair, ideal for close-quarters encounters.

You'll also discover the combat SMG, another pre-order bonus piece of DLC with a unique look and rapid rate of fire, ideal for clearing zombie or special forces infestations in double quick time.


After, why not sign up for the Reaction Time challenge itself, assemble your squad of Umbrella Operatives and input the codes to win great prizes like exclusive signed Resident Evil artwork and big screen HD TVs. If you haven't had a go yet, it's dead simple to enter and rather good fun.

We had a detailed look at the game and the tail end of last year and you can see what we thought in our Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City preview. Our chums from Games Radar have also just had a detailed hands-on with the new Heroes multiplayer mode, full details in the video below.
