Capcom has announced a remake of Resident Evil 3 for Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. It will launch worldwide on April 3, 2020 and include the NeoBards Entertainment-developed Project Resistance, now titled Resident Evil: Resistance, as its multiplayer component.
Today on PlayStation’s State of
Play broadcast, Capcom celebrated the 20th anniversary of the survival horror
classic Resident Evil™ 3: Nemesis by unveiling a completely reimagined Resident
Evil™ 3. On the heels of the award-winning Resident Evil™ 2, this highly
demanded follow-up in the 94 million unit selling franchise once again utilizes
Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine to complete the Raccoon City story arc. Resident
Evil 3 stars Jill Valentine – one of video games’ most iconic heroines – as she
escapes from a crumbling Raccoon City while being pursued by the unrelenting
bioweapon Nemesis. Players can also participate in previously untold Umbrella
experiments on the outskirts of Raccoon City in the included online asymmetrical
multiplayer game Resident Evil™ Resistance, previously known as the working
title Project Resistance. Resident Evil 3 will be available on PlayStation®4
computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One
X and Steam on April 3, 2020.
The special version of the game is a GameStop exclusive, limited to the console releases, and will cost you $179.99. That being said, it’s a pretty good package for that cost. Getting the obvious inclusions out of the way first, Resident Evil 3: Collector’s Edition comes with the standard version of the game as well as a digital soundtrack. As for the physical goodies, it will also include a double-sided map of Racoon City, a physical Collector’s art book, and a nice looking 11? figure of Jill Valentine. As the cherry on top of an already solid release, the packaging for this Collector’s Edition will be themed after a S.T.A.R.S item box.
Those who choose to pick up this Collector’s Editon will be getting it the day of release. For those of you who don’t already know, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil Resistance are coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on April 3, 2020. As a pre-order bonus, players can get a Classic Costume Pack that includes Jill’s original outfit and a modified hairstyle for Carlos Oliveira.
Resident Evil 3 is set amidst the nightmarish outbreak of the T-virus, a
biological weapon developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella Corporation.
The game marks the debut of Nemesis – a towering humanoid bioweapon designed for
both brutality and high-functioning intelligence – whose dogged hunt of
S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine made him an icon of the Resident Evil™ series.
Armed with an arsenal of high-powered weaponry and wrapped in a black suit to
hide his mutilated features, Nemesis will maim, pulverize or destroy any
obstacle on the path to his target.
Jill’s harrowing escape takes place in the panic-stricken hours leading up to
and following the events of the acclaimed best-selling Resident Evil 2. Intense
combat and puzzle solving combine to deliver the heart-pounding final chapter of
Raccoon City’s collapse. The horrific settings from the original game and new
content come to life as never before with RE Engine, previously utilized to
create the acclaimed Resident Evil™ 7 biohazard, Resident Evil 2 and Devil May
Cry™ 5 with high-definition graphics and modernized gameplay mechanics.
Complementing the action-packed single player campaign is Resident Evil
Resistance, an asymmetrical 4 vs. 1 multiplayer game originally unveiled as a
working title at Tokyo Game Show earlier this year. As the Mastermind behind the
scenes, players can assume the role of key Resident Evil characters like Annette
Birkin in a series of deadly experiments. Manipulate the environment and wield a
deck of cards to place vicious creatures, set traps and weaponized security
cameras to snare hapless Survivors. A first for the franchise, Masterminds can
even directly control elite bioweapons like G-Birkin and Tyrant. In turn, four
Survivors must effectively work together, making the most of a variety of
weapons and each player’s unique special abilities, to stand a chance of
escaping the experiment before time runs out.
Resident Evil 3 will be available on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment
system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X and Steam on April
3, 2020. Those who pre-order will also receive the exclusive Classic Costume
Pack that features the original design for Jill Valentine and hairstyle for
Carlos Oliveira (Please check with your retailer to confirm they’ll have this
