The team at Capcom finally puts an end to speculation as the Japanese company has just confirmed that the long-rumoured Resident Evil 3 "Raccoon City" demo is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 19, 2020.
"Featuring a slice of the full game that launches on April 3rd, you’ll step into the shoes of Jill Valentine as she attempts to make a desperate escape from Raccoon City as it rapidly descends into chaos," Capcom announced on the game's website. "While there’s a bit more focus on action in Resident Evil 3 compared to last year’s Resident Evil 2, you won’t want to go in guns blazing – it may be a demo, but you’ll need to conserve your ammo and items if you want to stand a chance of surviving."
The reimagining of 1999's Resident Evil 3 is not the only project set in the beloved world that will launch this year, as players will be able to take part in the Resident Evil Resistance open beta starting March 27.
If you're now familiar with Resistance, it basically is the threequel's 1 vs 4 asymmetrical online mode.
According to Capcom, the fast-approaching open beta will be "providing everyone with a chance to try out this asymmetrical co-op horror game set in the Resident Evil universe. Take on the role of a Survivor as part of a team of four trying to escape from a twisted experiment designed to push them to their limits. If you’re feeling sinister, take control as a Mastermind, watching the Survivors progress through cameras as you attempt to thwart their escape by placing traps and creatures while manipulating the environment to your advantage."
Without further ado, take a closer look at Resident Evil 3 and Resistance in the short trailer down below:
Experience Jill Valentine’s encounter with the unrelenting Nemesis in this survival-horror classic remade from the ground up. It also includes Resident Evil Resistance, a new 1 vs 4 asymmetrical online multiplayer game set in the Resident Evil universe. Cooperate as one of four Survivors or as a twisted Mastermind attempting to stop them at every turn.
Resident Evil 3: Remake is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam) on April 3, 2020.
