Resident Evil 3 Remake has been officially announced today with an April 2020 release date.
The game's first trailer has been shown during today's Sony State of Play, featuring the first look at Jill, Carlos, Nemesis and at the gameplay, which seems similar to the experience seen in the Resident Evil 2 Remake. The game will be released on April 3rd, 2020 worldwide.
It's also been confirmed that the game formerly known as Project Resistance will be included as a separate play mode in Resident Evil 3 Remake as Resident Evil Resistance.
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.
Resident Evil 3 Remake launches on April 3rd, 2020 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
