|Game:||Resident Evil Outbreak|
Destruction, Darkness. We quickly raced forward knowing all too well that each decision we made held newfound hope or endless despair.
—Scenario menu description
At a rescue station (which appears to be the R.P.D. underground garage), George Hamilton sees a note from his friend Peter Jenkins, asking for his help at the university. George leads a team of refugees into a university building.
The survivors find Peter, apparently killed by a gunshot to the back. His notes suggest that he was working on an anti-virus called "Daylight", which eliminates Tyrant virus infection from the body. A drug synthesizer is said to be located in the third floor lab; the survivors spread out to locate the three components necessary to generate the anti virus.
Meanwhile, a team of mercenaries from the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service encounter Thanatos, an experimental Tyrant created by former Umbrella researcher Greg Mueller, who was instrumental in creating the Daylight anti-virus as a means of combating the t-Virus. Meanwhile, U.B.C.S. operative Nikolai Zinoviev tries to obtain a blood sample from the Tyrant, shooting it with a capsule designed to draw blood into a vacuum tube. It quickly annihilates the groundside U.B.C.S. team before heading back indoors. After the survivors are able to disable Thanatos by luring it under faulty wiring, allowing them to retrieve the capsule full of T-blood, one of the three components.
The search for the V-poison leads the team down through Raccoon City's subway system and into an emission tower populated by a wasp colony. A pre-collected sample of their poison is recovered on the top floor.
When finally synthesising the vaccine, the power to the machine is cut. Looking around 3F, they are confronted by Greg. The scientist introduces himself and discusses having them killed by Thanatos. Greg is then shot through the neck by Nikolai, allowing the survivors to escape with the "Daylight" samples. Nikolai starts the timer of a series of charges planted around the university.
The harried survivors reach the courtyard as the University is destroyed, and a rescue helicopter circles around to pick them up. Before it can descend to reach them, however, they are forced to deal with the Thanatos, which survived the explosion and has mutated into a 12' tall Super Tyrant. Fortunately, they retrieve an ampoule shooter from a dead U.B.C.S. operative and use it to fire a dose of Daylight into "Thanatos-R". The anti-virus reacts with its contaminated blood and kills it spectacularly. The helicopter then rescues them and they escape the city as it is bombed, with the Daylight in hand and hope for the future.
Too much growth weakens an organization
What should be important becomes overshadowed by greed
One masterpiece is enough.
George: This place, too...
Peter (note): Dear George
I have vital information about the current city crisis, which only you will understand.
I'm waiting at the university.
Please contact me as soon as possible.
George: This is...
Raccoon University. Why there?
a few hours later...
Peter (note): ジョージへ
- George Hamilton - Appears whether part of your team or not.
- Yoko Suzuki - If she is part of your team, she will be featured in a special scene with Greg.
- Greg Mueller - A former Umbrella researcher working as a university professor. Assassinated by Nikolai.
- Nikolai Zinoviev - A monitor in charge of the failed Operation: Emperor's Mushroom.
- Gill and Danny - Surviving firefighters; they are searching for fellow survivors in their helicopter.
- Peter Jenkins - The professor who sent the team to the University; will return as a zombie.
- In HARD and VERY HARD modes, the two partner AI will stick with the player all game long. That means you will have to do all three trips to collect the Daylight materials.
- The final countdown before the university explodes will be shorter in Hard and Very Hard.
- During the faux credits of this level and the game, Below Freezing Point is shown as 'Below Fleezing Point'. This is because in Japanese, the letters 'r' and 'l' are considered the same, and such mistakes are common in translations.
