Resident Evil 3

Fans will soon get a taste of the single-player and online components of Resident Evil 3.

Capcom announced this morning that a demo for Resident Evil 3 is coming out this Thursday. Meanwhile, an open beta for Resident Evil Resistance is planned for March 27.

The demo lets players step into the boots of legendary heroine Jill Valentine. 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.

Later this month, fans will get a sneak peek of the game’s multiplayer component, Resident Evil Resistance. The asymmetrical 4 vs 1 multiplayer experience is included with Resident Evil 3. The Resistance open beta starts March 27 at 3 AM Eastern for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Steam users will have access starting at 1 PM Eastern.
