Resident Evil 3 Remake's Demo is Coming Soon to PC, PS4, and Xbox One

There's an open beta coming for Resident Evil Resistance as well.

The Resident Evil 3 remake demo we've long been waiting for is coming soon — very soon, in fact. The RE3 Raccoon City demo will be available on Xbox One at 12 a.m. EST on March 19 and 1 p.m. EST on March 19 for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Capcom's official announcement doesn't give too much away about what we'll be doing in our brief time with the remastered zombie apocalypse game, but it sounds like the RE3 demo offers a well-rounded overview its different facets:

...step into the boots of the legendary heroine Jill Valentine, 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.

While Jill is fighting to save innocent civilians, she must also save herself from the relentless bioweapon Nemesis, whose sole objective is her demise.

Should you manage to complete the demo, you also unlock a brand-new cinematic trailer exclusive to the demo — well, exclusive until someone uploads it on YouTube.

You'll have 20 Mr. Charlie statues to hunt down in the Raccoon City demo as well, if you're brave enough, so it's safe to say the Mr. Raccoon statue quest from Resident Evil 2 remake is coming back, too. The good thing? Safe rooms are safe after all.

Finally, Resident Evil Resistance, the multiplayer game packaged in with Resident Evil 3 remake, has an open beta starting March 27. Players will take control of Daniel Fabron, one of the Masterminds, to torment those trapped inside, or they can resist the forces of evil and band together as one of six Survivors. The open beta starts March 27 at 1 p.m. EST and ends with Resident Evil 3 remake launches April 3.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
