Resident Evil 3 is available now!
The wait is over, and it’s time to begin your escape from the streets of Raccoon City. For Jill Valentine, it may very well be her last time wandering the streets of the place she once called home – her last escape. Resident Evil 3 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, with Resident Evil Resistance, an asymmetrical multiplayer game set in the Resident Evil universe, included!
Taking place concurrently with the events of Resident Evil 2,
Jill Valentine has little choice but to venture out into a city in chaos
in order to seek a way out. She’ll have more than just shambling
zombies to deal with, however, as it’s quickly revealed that a
terrifying creature, known as Nemesis, is after her, with one goal in
mind – ensuring Jill never sees daylight again.
Taking cues from the original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis while building upon the re-imagined Raccoon City introduced in last year’s Resident Evil 2, RE3 explores
a vibrant city and various locales as Jill Valentine’s skills as a
police officer and member of S.T.A.R.S. are put to the test. Jill’s
elite training creates a bit more of a focus on action compared to RE2,
and you’ll have a few more options when dealing with enemies such as the
useful dodge maneuver that can help you get out of the way of attacks.
With just the right timing, a “perfect” dodge can help you turn the
tables on approaching enemies, as well!
True to survival horror tradition, you’ll need to manage your items
and ammunition carefully if you want to make it through all the horrors
that Raccoon City has in store with the terrifying Nemesis chasing you
That’s not all that’s available starting today; Resident Evil Resistance, an asymmetrical multiplayer game set in the Resident Evil universe, is also included with Resident Evil 3!
Pitting four Survivors against a maniacal Mastermind, it’s up to the
team of four to make their way through a series of deadly experiments
filled with traps, creatures, and familiar bioweapons – like the Tyrant –
from the Resident Evil universe. There’s a bit of a twist to
this game, though: a real live player is taking the role of a
Mastermind, populating their own house of horrors to stop the Survivors
at every opportunity.
As a Survivor, you’ll have a familiar third-person perspective as
well as several different characters to choose from. Each survivor has
their own unique skills that are key to their own survival, as well as
the overall success of the team. As a Mastermind, you’ll be behind the
cameras, placing all sorts of traps and monsters to wear down the
Survivors with the goal of running down the clock before they can
escape. While the Survivors are an all-new cast, Jill Valentine will be
added as a Survivor in a future update, so be sure to keep an eye out on
Resident Evil social channels for the latest news! You’ll also see some
familiar faces among the Masterminds, such as Umbrella researcher
Annette Birkin and the master of fear, Alex Wesker.
Resident Evil Resistance is included with Resident Evil 3, available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam!
