[Updated: March 19] Resident Evil 3 Remake Demo Arrives Later This Week, Insider Claims
[Update] Capcom has officially announced that the Resident Evil 3: Raccoon City Demo will arriving on PS4, Xbox One and PC this week on March 19. The demo will allow players to take on the role of Jill Valentine, as 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. Interesting to note is that those who complete demo will be presented with an exclusive cinematic trailer.
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.
In addition to announcing the release of the demo, Capcom also announced an open beta for the the game's multiplayer mode, Resident Evil Resistance. This beta will kick off on March 27 and will allow player 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.

Dusk Golem was among the first people to leak spot on information about Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 Remake, and over the past few months, we’ve already covered several ‘leaks’ from him, including a leak about Capcom rebooting Resident Evil 8 and Capcom allegedly preparing to release four big titles in this fiscal year.
As with all leaks and rumors, take the information above with a pinch of salt for now. Resident Evil 3 Remake launches on April 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
The remake of Resident Evil 3 was officially announced back in December of last year during PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast.
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.
