Resident Evil 3 Timeline Clarifies When Jill and Carlos’ Nightmare Begins

The new Resident Evil 3 timeline might just point to starting the game as someone other than Jill.

Resident Evil 3 remake might be numerically ahead of Resident Evil 2, but it actually takes place over roughly the same period of time. It can be a bit confusing what happens when and who’s involved in what, so Capcom created an official timeline outlining when disaster strikes and where everyone is when the story of Raccoon City’s fall starts.

The most interesting thing about the new Resident Evil timeline is that Capcom shows Carlos is in Raccoon City before Jill’s portion of the journey begins. Carlos is shipped into Raccoon City with the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service — which we know gets much more attention in Resident Evil 3 remake — on September 26. The U.B.C.S.s’ goal is evacuating citizens, but it’s a full two days before Jill’s story starts in the warehouse and Nemesis is deployed.

As USGamer (who first spotted the timeline) notes, it suggests the story could start with Carlos. We know Carlos’ role in Resident Evil 3 remake is expanded, after all, and he’s also at the other end of the city from where Jill starts. Given the emphasis on expanding Raccoon City and making it seem real, it would make sense to have us start with Carlos when the crisis first breaks.

Meanwhile, Leon and Claire, heroes of Resident Evil 2 remake, don’t get shipped in until September 29, after Nemesis is already stalking the streets.

While we still have to wait until April 3 to find out for sure how Resident Evil 3 remake unfolds, the RE3 demo is available tomorrow.

You can check out the timeline on the official Resident Evil website. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Resident Evil 3 remake news as it’s deployed.
