Capcom announced today that it plans to take the story in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City one step further by offering an all-new mission, available for free as DLC, starting April 10.

In this mission, players will enter Raccoon City as a member of a Spec Ops team deployed to find the source of the deadly virus outbreak. Players will need to fight off opposing team members from the Umbrella Security Service (USS) as well as zombies and other “B.O.W.’s” to succeed in their mission.

Apparently the storyline takes place between Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3; and according to the press release, “Fans of the series are sure to be pleased when they re-visit the moment Jill Valentine encounters the Nemesis.”

Operation Raccoon City drops on March 20 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version will be available on May 18. What do you think about this free DLC announcement before the release of the game? Let us know if you think this should have been on the retail disc in the comments section.
