A massive boost today for fans of the Resident Evil series as Capcom has just confirmed it will release Resident Evil Outbreak File No. 2 on PS2 in Europe in Summer 2005.
It's splendid news for horror-survival fans as there was some doubt as to whether Outbreak File No. 2 would even make it into the Euro zone at all. But Capcom, bless its rotting zombie heart, has taken pity on us poor Euro slobs, although US fans will be getting their slice of the action even sooner, with a December 2004 release. Boo!
Why are we excited? Well Outbreak File No. 2 features all the series' classic zombie mashing antics, as you can play one of eight diverse characters fighting for survival after the outbreak of a frankly scary bio-weapon.
But the reason we're already sharpening our axes and polishing our shotguns with unashamed glee is that Outbreak File No. 2 will feature an online co-op mode - so we can share the pain with up to four fellow zombie-phobes.
Marvellous, and this latest fine array of screens should certainly whet your zombie-bashing appetites too.
Just the one year to wait then...
