In addition to announcing the game's release date for Windows, the company confirmed the game will sport Nvidia 3D Vision support. The PC version of the game boasts the same features as its console counterparts, including eight-player online and four-player campaign support.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City puts players in control of a half-dozen special commandos employed by The Umbrella Corporation, the sinister pharmaceutical corporation whose unethical experiments caused the series' rash of zombie outbreaks in the first place.

While most entries in the Resident Evil series have players either containing a zombie outbreak or working to expose the truth behind Umbrella's dirty dealings, the commando's job in Slant Six's game is to cover up the company's dirt and make sure there are no survivors in Raccoon City.

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will deploy on March 20. For more on the shooter, check out GameSpot's latest preview.
