With as successful as last year’s Resident Evil 2 remake was, it’s no surprise Capcom is continuing its hotstreak with a remake of Resident Evil 3. What is surprising, however, is that it’s coming bundled with an entirely new multiplayer component called Resident Evil Resistance. Even more surprising: the remake is due out on April 3, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and and PC via Steam. That’s a lot sooner than we expected.
With the announcement of the remake came a trailer, showing protagonist Jill Valentine running through a building from a first-person perspective, fleeing a powerful creature known as Nemesis. However, a Capcom blog post confirms the game will have the same over-the-shoulder third-person perspective as Resident Evil 2 rather than first-person scares in the vein of Resident Evil 7.
Cover art for Resident Evil 3 leaked ahead of the State of Play stream, displaying Jill, her partner Carlos Oliveira, and the monstrous Nemesis looming above them.
The State of Play also confirmed Resident Evil 3 will come bundled with Resident Evil Resistance, an asymmetrical 4 vs. 1 online co-op game in which one player controls the Mastermind, setting traps and hunting down a group of Survivors as the other players race against the clock to escape.
Resident Evil 3 pre-order bonuses
If you pre-order Resident Evil 3 ahead of its April release date, you’ll receive an exclusive Classic Costume Pack that includes Jill’s original outfit and Carlos’ original hairstyle.
Pre-order Resident Evil 3 standard edition
The standard edition of Resident Evil 3 will come with the base game, Resident Evil Resistance, and any pre-order bonuses. Resident Evil 3 standard edition is selling for $60.
Pre-order Resident Evil 3 Collector’s edition
Fans in North America will be able to snag the Resident Evil 3 Collector’s edition, which will be sold exclusively at GameStop. The Collector’s edition includes a physical copy of Resident Evil 3, Resident Evil Resistance, any pre-order bonuses, a Jill Valentine statuette (similar to the Leon figure offered for Resident Evil 2), a hardcover art book, a double-sided poster featuring a map of Raccoon City, and a digital Resident Evil 3 soundtrack. It retails for $180 USD at GameStop.
The Resident Evil 3 Collector’s edition seems to be a hot item for fans; it sold out not long after the listings went live. Both the PS4 and Xbox One versions are sold out as of last update, but keep checking back, as it’ll likely come back into stock sporadically between now and release.
