Resident Evil 3 remake: Everything we know

(Image credit: Capcom)

Hot on the heels of Capcom’s excellent remake of Resident Evil 2, an equally pretty Resident Evil 3 remake is on the way and releasing sooner than expected. The graphical upgrade is a gigantic leap forward from the original PlayStation, of course. But still, man, look at those faces. But please don’t linger too long on Nemesis’s new face, lest the nightmares take hold.

Just like the Resident Evil 2 remake, the Resident Evil 3 remake includes gameplay updates, like proper over-the-shoulder shooting and modern controls. Here’s everything we know so far about the Resident Evil 3 remake.

What is the Resident Evil 3 remake release date?

Resident Evil 3 is coming out April 3, 2020 on PS4 and PC. Every copy also comes with Resident Evil Resistance, the asymmetrical 1v4 competitive take on the series Capcom revealed back in September.

You can try a free demo for the Resident Evil 3 remake now

You can get your hands on the remake ahead of its official launch with a free demo on Steam. Make sure you head to the store page specifically for the demo, as you won’t find it on the Resident Evil 3’s page. Capcom says you can “play a section of the opening of the game, specially tuned for this demo, and get a glimpse of the tragedy that befalls Raccoon City.”

There will also be a beta later in March for Resident Evil Resistance, the 4 v 1 competitive mode where four teenagers take on one mastermind similar to something like Dead By Daylight.

Here’s the first Resident Evil 3 remake trailer

Just a whole bunch of good stuff in here. It’s nice to get out of the confined spaces of RE2 and get a good look at a very pretty (and deeply troubled) Raccoon City.

Get caught up on Resident Evil lore with this handy video

In anticipation for RE3 Remake, Capcom has released a recap video going over the story of the first two Resident Evil games. It’s a great little catch-up if you’ve never played a game in the series, though it is a little strange that the video is told through subtitles with no voiceover.

Resident Evil 3 Remake is designed with action in mind

“If you compare Resident Evil 3 to the second installment, it leans more toward action. So we remade everything based on that premise,” said producer Masachika Kawata in an introduction video for the game. Like the original game, expect the new remake to feel more run-and-gun than RE2. Just don’t go full Hollywood action movie like Resident Evil 6, and you should be fine.
