Resident Evil 3 demo coming later this week for some zombie madness

For those of y’all cooped up in the house on self-quarantine, Capcom has you covered. Resident Evil 3 has its first demo coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Stream this Thursday on March 19.

The cool thing about that is this Thursday would have been the start of the NCAA March Madness so we can at least spend countless hours on one form of entertainment.

With Resident Evil 3: Raccoon City Demo players will control Jill Valentine as she teams with Carlos Oliveira and the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.) in an evacuation effort of 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. The Raccoon City Demo will reveal a brand new cinematic trailer exclusive to demo participants upon completion, and will be available starting March 19 at 12am ET on Xbox One and 1pm ET on PlayStation 4 and Steam.


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.

Resident Evil players will also get an advanced look at Resident Evil Resistance, the online multiplayer game with an open beta March 27. Players will control mastermind Daniel Fabron as he attempts to run his experiments involving bioweapons to take out regular civilians.
