Operation Raccoon City to Get Free DLC

In a rather awesome move from Capcom, the publisher has announced that its upcoming game, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, will be getting free DLC well ahead of its launch.

The DLC, which will feature the Spec-Ops from the game, will even tie-in to events in Resident Evil 3. It will recreate a scene ¬†where Jill Valentine must escape the rampaging Nemesis (remember him?); so not only will people get to play as the Spec-Ops team in the free mission, but they’re to get the chance to see one of the franchise’s favorite characters back in action once again.

The game itself will be out this May 20 for the consoles and on May 18 for the PC.
