Capcom has been sharing more news about Resident Evil 3 Remake ahead of the big release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year.
Today included the RE3 dev team showcasing the first 13 minutes of the campaign via a new live stream event hosted on YouTube,
This focused on Jull Valentine traversing the Zombie-riddled streets of Racoon City, dodging the undead and getting a few wounds along the way.
It certainly made for some excellent viewing for fans waiting on the final RE3 Remake release date, which has been set for April 3, 2020.
And the good news is that a new Resident Evil 3 Remake demo is going to be made available to play before that date.
We don’t know if it will be the same as the one featured in today’s live stream and there doesn’t appear to have been any announcement regarding the demo’s launch date.
But it looks like we’re getting closer to an announcement reveal for that new free content coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Fans are hoping that something will pop up this week but it seems more likely that there will be a bit more waiting involved.
A new message from Capcom confirms: “It was written in the STARS. A Resident Evil 3 Demo is on the way. We’ll have more details in the near future.”
Following the success of the Resi 2 Remake demo back in 2019, it was expected that something similar would be tried for Nemesis.
The big difference between the two titles is that Resi 3 will also have an online mode, called Resistance.
And it will be interesting to see if Capcom decides to offer a little run-through of that mode as well.
Based on how things were done last year, we can make an educated guess regarding when the new demo arrives.
Capcom provided a two-week period for fans to play the One-Shot Resident Evil 3 Remake demo back in January 2019.
And if the famous developer decides to follow the same winning formula in 2020, we could see the new Resident Evil 3 demo arrive on Friday, March 20, 2020.
It should be noted that this is just a prediction and we will have to wait and see what Capcom has planned in the coming weeks.
There’s no doubt that Resi fans will be hoping to start testing the latest nightmare set in Racoon City much sooner than that.
As mentioned above, Capcom may treat this new demo release differently based on how they will also be launching a multiplayer mode with Resi 3.
Resident Evil Resistance is a 4 vs. 1 asymmetrical co-op game set in the Resident Evil universe.
