Resident Evil 2 was one of the biggest hits of 2019, and now it seems Capcom is aiming to recreate some of that success by bringing another classic Resident Evil game to modern audiences. In Sony’s December 2019 State of Play livestream, the company announced a Resident Evil 3 remake is coming to PS4 on April 3, 2020. The game will also be available on Xbox One and Steam.
The new trailer shows 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.
