The Nemesis is coming...
...Capcom releases Resident Evil 3 on April 3rd, but you'll be able to blast zombies and run away from the Nemesis screaming before then with a demo dropping on PS4, XB1 and Steam this Thursday, March 19th!
Capcom details that in the demo, "players step into the boots of the legendary heroine Jill Valentine, as she teams up with Carlos Oliveira and the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.) to evacuate civilians from a crumbling Raccoon City. While Jill is fighting to save innocent civilians, she must also save herself from the relentless bioweapon Nemesis, whose sole objective is her demise...As if Jill’s battle was not daunting enough, 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.
And if that wasn't enough, Capcom will also be releasing an open Beta for the game's 4 vs 1 multiplayer element, Resident Evil: Resistance on March 27th! In the Beta, "players have the option to take on the role of Daniel Fabron, one of the game’s four Masterminds, to run twisted experiments using various bioweapons and traps on a group of everyday civilians. In turn, players can band together as one of four of the six Survivors, each possessing a unique ability to help their team escape the experiment before time runs out."
Check out the demo trailer below, and here's to being able to destress a bit with some zombie killing later this week!
