The Resident Evil 3 Remake is still a few weeks away from release, but Capcom has revealed a couple ways fans can tide themselves over in the meantime.
In a post to the official Capcom Unity blog made on Mar. 16, the company revealed that a demo for the Resident Evil 3 Remake, titled the Resident Evil 3 Raccoon City Demo, would be available for download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC starting on Mar. 19.
In it, players will be able to play through a brief segment of the game, getting a feel for its more action oriented approach to the Raccoon City outbreak in the shoes of Jill Valentine. While the post warns that conserving ammo will be necessary, little else was revealed about what the demo will entail.
The post likewise revealed that fans could dive into the beta for the Resident Evil 3 Remake’s asymmetrical co-op multiplayer mode, Resident Evil Resistance, on Mar. 27.
In it, players will be able to adopt the role of either the Survivors, who are making their way through a monster and trap-filled experiment; or the Mastermind, who controls where the traps and monsters appear in an attempt to kill every Survivor.
The beta will be open to anyone interested, though it wasn’t yet revealed whether there would be different times for different console owners to log on.
