During PlayStation’s final State of Play stream of the year, Capcom finally revealed Resident Evil 3 Remake alongside a confirmed release date of April 3rd, 2020. The pulse-pounding trailer is embedded above with some screenshots and a synopsis description for the upcoming survival horror classic included below.
Resident Evil 3 is set amidst the nightmarish outbreak of the T-virus, a biological weapon developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella Corporation. The game marks the debut of Nemesis – a towering humanoid bioweapon designed for both brutality and high-functioning intelligence – whose dogged hunt of S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine made him an icon of the Resident Evil series. Armed with an arsenal of high-powered weaponry and wrapped in a black suit to hide his mutilated features, Nemesis will maim, pulverize or destroy any obstacle on the path to his target. In addition to the main campaign, this package will also include a new 1 vs 4 asymmetrical online multiplayer game titled Resident Evil Resistance.
Resident Evil 2 Remake was released back in January of this year and turned out to be an absolute success. Given these turn of events, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that we would get another remake sooner or later. The simple fact that we are getting a remake for Resident Evil 3 so early into 2020 is definitely surprising to me and guarantees that next year will be both an exciting and busy year for video game releases. Feel free to check out the special developer message for today’s announcement directly from Resident Evil 3 Producers Peter Fabiano and Masachika Kawata.
Resident Evil 3 Remake will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Are any of you looking forward to the upcoming game? Please feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
