Resident Evil 3 Remake

Nemesis is coming.


Resident Evil 3 Remake will take players back to Raccoon City to follow Jill Valentine's escape. To prepare survival horror fans, developer Capcom is getting a demo ready. 

The official Resident Evil Twitter account said Tuesday that a demo for Resident Evil 3 Remake is on the way. It didn't provide any specifics but did say it'd have more details soon. 

Along with the news of a demo, our sister site GameSpot had a chance to play a sequence of the upcoming horror game. Last year's Resident Evil 2 Remake redid the Raccoon City Police Department, where most of the action took place. RE3 reimagines the entire city, according to editor Matt Espineli. It's a bigger world to explore and try to survive. 

Nemesis, the big baddie of the game, has also been reimagined and not just its face. The monster will require a bit more strategy to take down and avoid, unlike RE2's Mr. X, who would slowly chase players down. Nemesis is unpredictable and will attack in the least expected places. 

Fans of the original might also enjoy this GameSpot video comparing scenes from the original and the remake. 

Capcom announced the RE3 Remake in December, almost one year since it released the RE2 Remake. Included in the remake is the four-versus-one multiplayer, Resident Evil Resistance. The new mode pits a group of players against one who is controlling the zombies, monsters and traps. 

Resident Evil 3 Remake comes out in April for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
