Opening the State of Play with a cheeky menu noise from Resident Evil 3 was a good move from Sony, but the cats finally out of the bag and Resident Evil 3 is finally official. It’s coming out on PS4, Xbox One and PC on April 3rd, 2020.
Here’s what Capcom said about the game:
Taking a trip back to Raccoon City won’t be a walk in the park, of course. The city is in the throes of an outbreak, with the shuffling undead wandering the streets and the urban jungle becoming a tangle of overturned cars and crumbling buildings. Picturesque, isn’t it? It’s against this backdrop that Jill Valentine prepares to make her escape, though there’s a bit of a twist in the timeline for those of you who aren’t familiar with the original. If you played Resident Evil 2 earlier this year, you may know that Leon and Claire arrived in the city on September 29th. Jill’s story, however, starts a few days earlier. As an accomplished member of S.T.A.R.S. and a survivor of the incident in the Arklay Mountains (the site of the original Resident Evil), Jill has some experience with the horrors that await.
But that’s not all, Capcom also revealed that the previously revealed Project: Resistance is actually Resident Evil: Resistance, and will be bundled with Resident Evil 3 as the multiplayer component of that game.
Included with Resident Evil 3 is the asymmetrical 4 vs. 1 co-op game, Resident Evil Resistance, which was initially unveiled earlier this year as Project Resistance.
