Rumours about Resident Evil 3 Remake have been circulating for over a week already. It was initially thought that the game will be announced during The Game Awards. It’s confirmation ended up appearing much sooner, as part of Sony’s State of Play livestream.
Despite the shiny new look, elements found in the trailer should be familiar to those who have played the original. In it, we get a better look at protagonist Jill Valentine, as well as Carlos Oliveira, the second playable character. There was also a glimpse of the title’s eponymous antagonist, Nemesis, though not a clear one.
For those who need a refresh, Resident Evil 3 takes place around the same time as Resident Evil 2. According to Engadget, the remake will also come with more content than the original. It will also be using the same RE Engine that powered the previous remake. To say the least, this is assuring given that Resident Evil 2 Remake looked so gorgeous.
Resident Evil 3 comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC beginning April 3rd, 2020! Return to Raccoon City as Jill Valentine escapes an unstoppable pursuer in this re-imagining of the survival horror classic.

The trailer also revealed that Resident Evil 3 Remake will come with a multiplayer mode called Resident Evil Resistance. If the name sounds familiar to you, that’s because Capcom first revealed it earlier in September, as Project Resistance. Think of this as a higher stakes version of Left 4 Dead.
According to the trailer, Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil Resistance will be released on 3 April 2020. Beyoond the PS4, the game will also be available on PC and Xbox One.
