Resident Evil 3 demo coming soon
Demo for single player and a beta for online component are happening this month
Capcom has announced a pair of planned demos for their upcoming Resident Evil 3 Remake.
A playable demo will be available starting this Thursday, March 19. The demo lets players step into the boots of Jill Valentine, as she teams up with Carlos Oliveira and the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service to evacuate civilians from a crumbling Raccoon City. While Jill is fighting to save civilians, she must also save herself from the relentless bioweapon Nemesis. The Raccoon City Demo will reveal a brand new cinematic trailer exclusive to demo participants upon completion.
Capcom also invites players to test their limits with a challenging Mr. Charlie scavenger hunt within the Raccoon City Demo. Twenty Mr. Charlie statues are strewn across Raccoon City; can you seek and destroy all of them with Nemesis hot on your heels? An on-screen counter will help players keep track of their acquired statues and a final count will be displayed upon the demo’s completion.
Later this month, fans can also get a sneak peek at Resident Evil Resistance, the asymmetrical 4 vs 1 multiplayer experience that is included with Resident Evil 3. In the open beta starting March 27, players have the option to take on the role of Daniel Fabron, one of the game’s four Masterminds, to run experiments using various bioweapons and traps on a group of everyday civilians. In turn, players become one of four of the six Survivors, each possessing a unique ability to help their team escape the experiment before time runs out. The open beta will end when the game launches on April 3.
Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resistance will be out on April 3, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One , and PC.
