It has been six years since the destruction of Raccoon City and, in that time, the U.S. government has conducted an investigation in which several Umbrella officials are implicated in the heinous wrongdoings, and prosecuted.
Ultimately, the Government formally and indefinitely suspends Umbrellas business practices, causing the company to become bankrupt and dysfunctional.
Meanwhile, Leon S. Kennedy, formerly Raccoon City Police Departments idealistic rookie cop, is now a U.S. agent with a top-secret mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the Presidents daughter, who has been kidnapped by a mysterious organization. Leon must begin his investigation with a trip to an undisclosed Spanish-speaking village in Europe, where he eners a horde of unruly villagers who pledge their lives to Los Illuminados, the cult that perpetrated Ashleys kidnapping. As Leon eners unimaginable horrors, he must find out who or what is behind everything.
