The much-awaited Resident Evil 3 Remake finally has an official release date complete with a new trailer. Players get a glimpse into a ravaged Racoon City where the T-virus has been unleashed. T-virus has created a slew of genetically-modified monsters that will play a central role in the game. The game story centres around Jill Valentine, navigating through a city infested with these abominations. Resident Evil 3 Remake release trailer showcases the upgrade in technology with enhanced graphics and gameplay. Featuring an over-the-shoulder camera perspective, the game looks set to be a worthy successor of its 1999 predecessor.
The Resident Evil 3 game was released first as Resident Evil: Nemesis on the Playstation. This 1999 release went on to be a massive commercial success, selling over 3.5 million copies. The game put players in the shoes of Jill Valentine who is trying to escape Racoon City while a monstrous creature named Nemesis is on the prowl for her. It is expected that Resident Evil 3 remake will keep the core elements of the original storyline while expanding upon it.
In addition, the Resident Evil 3 remake will also feature a four-on-one multiplayer titled Resident Evil: Resistance. While Project Resistance was initially supposed to be a separate game within the series, it was eventually merged with the Resident Evil 3 remake package.
The Resident Evil franchise has also gone on to be successful in creating commercially viable movies. The seven Resident Evil movies have grossed $1.2 billion.
Resident Evil 3 remake is set to release on April 3, 2020, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC from Capcom.
