Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City coming in March to Australia and New Zealand

Latest addition to popular survival horror franchise to be released with additional Heroes Mode

The local release of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 has been set for March 23 across Australia and New Zealand.

According to THQ, the local distributor for Capcom products, the PC version of the game is expected to soon follow the console release.

Set during the events of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis that were originally released on the Sony PlayStation in 1998 and 1999 respectively, Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City is a third person team-based shooter in the vein of the Resident Evil Outbreak game released on the PlayStation 2 in 2003.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City marks the first time a team-based Resident Evil game can be played online in Australia and New Zealand, as the PAL version of Resident Evil Outbreak had its online support removed.

With the announcement of the local launch comes the confirmation of another online competitive multiplayer mode, dubbed Heroes Mode, which will be included with the game.

In Heroes Mode, players will be able to compete in four vs. four matches with classic Resident Evil characters including Leon. S Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Hunk and Ada Wong.

Players compete against each other in a battle for survival by either assuming the role of the good or bad guys, and need to keep an eye out for zombies and B.O.Ws while attempting to defeat the opposing team.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
