Resident Evil 3 Remake update: Capcom reveals the news fans have been waiting to hear
Capcom has revealed more about upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 3 Remake on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
With the Resident Evil 3 Remake release date just a few months away, Capcom has given fans the news they’ve been waiting for.
According to Resident Evil 3 producers Peter Fabiano and Masao Kawada, the latest remake will stray from the source material.
Speaking to Famitsu, the producers explained that while the story would largely stay true to the original, some elements would be different.
Indeed, Resident Evil 3 Remake is said to contain even more changes than last year’s Resident Evil 2.
The character of Carlos symbolises these changes, as he’s a lot different in the new game, both in terms of looks and personality.
Making more changes to the original game is probably a wise move, because Resident Evil 3 Nemesis was criticised for not bringing much new to the table.
Resident Evil 3 Remake has been completely remade from the ground-up for current-gen platforms.
Developed with the the same RE Engine used for Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom’s upcoming horror game features an over-the-shoulder perspective for added immersion.
“The city itself comes to life as never before thanks to the RE Engine, which provides players with both high-definition visuals and modernised gameplay mechanics,” Capcom explains.
“The remake also marks the first appearance of Nemesis, a hulking bioweapon that will stop at nothing to get to Jill as she attempts to get away from the T-virus that’s plaguing Raccoon City.
“In addition to the single-player campaign, players can also dive into previously untold Umbrella experiments on the outskirts of Raccoon City thanks to the addition of the online asymmetrical multiplayer game Resident Evil Resistance.
“A 4 vs. 1 multiplayer experience, Resistance lets players assume the role of a Mastermind, who can manipulate the environment and place vicious creatures, set traps and weaponised security cameras to snare hapless Survivors. The four Survivors, on the other hand, must effectively work together to stand a chance of escaping the experiment before time runs out.”
Hardcore Resident Evil fans might even want to check out the special Collector’s Edition, which comes with a host of bonus items.
In addition to the core game, fans will receive a Raccoon City Double-sided map, a Collector’s Artbook, a digital soundtrack, a special S.T.A.R.S box and an 11-inch Jill Valentine figurine.
