The wait for the upcoming Resident Evil 3 Remake is getting shorter and shorter. Capcom just announced that players will soon be able to get their hands on the game with a playable demo. The company did the same thing with Resident Evil 2 before release, so this isn’t that big of a surprise. 

While you’ll have to wait a little longer for details on the demo, you can actually check out some 4K gameplay of the horror-survival game right now. Here’s 13 minutes of gameplay courtesy of Dengeki Online Channel, released after a recent press event:

Highlights of the video include fighting off a horrifically swollen demogorgon in the sewers, giant spiders, a lovely donut shop and a nigh-unstoppable Nemesis. While Mr. X lumbered slowly towards players throughout their time roaming the Raccoon Police Department (and beyond), Nemesis lunges at them and runs at marathon speed to rip them apart.

Mr. X is an absolute joke compared to Nemesis. The latter has a flamethrower and handy tentacles that pull you in for the kill, after all. You stand no chance.

You'll realise why I called this thing a Demogorgon when you watch the gameplay video.

The Resident Evil 2 Remake followed Claire and Leon’s adventures in Raccoon City, unravelling what the Umbrella Corporation had done to the city. The Resident Evil 3 Remake largely takes place during the same period of time as its prequel, with Jill Valentine in Raccoon City this time, evading a bioweapon by the name of Nemesis - who is out to eliminate her at all costs. 

Resident Evil 3 will also include a co-operative multiplayer mode titled Resident Evil: Resistance. One side of players have to escape a dangerous gauntlet of enemies and traps, while the other has to stop them from doing so - while controlling said enemies and traps. Check out gameplay of the multiplayer experience below:

Judging from the absolute excellence of the Resident Evil 2 Remake (it was one of our nominees for 2019’s Game of the Year!), the singleplayer campaign for its sequel is going to be absolutely fantastic. 

Resident Evil 3 will launch on April 3, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
