Like Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 will have demo, and it will be playable on March 19th. The demo follows Jill Valentine as she tries to stay alive amidst the zombies and chaos of Raccoon City, and the PlayStation Blog has a few tips for your survival. Although Resident Evil 3 will be more action-oriented, Jill still needs to be careful. For starters, the enemies are a little faster too. Running around without a plan or way to escape is a good way to get into trouble. Even with the new perfect dodge move, caution is your friend.
Raccoon City is may be your friend too. As you try to escape a city circling the drain, there are many items you can find that might make your journey a little easier. Forget diamonds. Ammo is a girl’s best friend, and it will always be limited. Healing items will keep Jill from switching sides. The city itself can be used to harm or help in the form of explosive red barrels and electrical generators.
As you go through the demo, it’s not enough to stay alive. You can also participate in the Mr. Charlie Challenge. There are twenty of these little smiling bobbleheads to find and smash. Each one will be tracked by a counter on the screen, and it won’t be easy to find them all. It’s just to prove your gaming superiority, but it’s definite proof.
Single-player is just one part of the upcoming Resident Evil 3 Remake Release. Next week, Capcom will give us an open beta for the asymmetrical multiplayer Resident Evil Resistance. It pits a group of four survivors against a Mastermind who is running them through some experiments with traps and bioweapons. Each survivor will have a special ability that can aid them to escape. Teamwork will help you from becoming a footnote in the final experiment results.
As we sit at home (sometimes under the force of law), it’s nice to be able to confront a fictional virus in a fictional world to escape our own. The Resident Evil 3 Remake is one of the most anticipated games of this year, and it’s coming to us on April 3rd.
