Leon Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Rebecca Chambers, and their companions take on the awesome power of Umbrella, the mysterious megacorporation that is creating terrifying biological weapons, as they set out to find the key to stopping Umbrella forever.
Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, and the survivors of the Caliban Coveincident are en route to Europe to rendezvous with the other surviving S.T.A.R.S. members for further operations against the evil Umbrella Corporation. While in the air, their plane is redirected by the mysterious Trent, an enigmatic figure who has been guiding and manipulating events throughout the entire series of novels. Trent informs the group of an Umbrella facility in Utah, used to test and train the company's experimental biological weapons. The facility's overseer, a man named Reston, is one of three people in the world in possession of a codebook which would allow access to all of Umbrella's most secret documents. Trent wants the group to infiltrate the facility, steal the codebook, and take down Umbrella once and for all.
Reluctantly agreeing to Trent's plan, the group makes their way into the Umbrella facility. They soon find themselves trapped within the facility's testing area, forced to trek across four massive, artificial environments (called The Planet) while evading Umbrella's deadliest new monsters...
