Resident Evil 3 Demo to be Released on March 19, Resident Evil Resistance Open Beta Arriving on March 27

Capcom has announced that the Resident Evil 3 Demo will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 19, and that the Open Beta for Resident Evil Resistance will begin on March 27.More details were revealed on a blogpost on Capcom Unity, and it appears to not have any restrictions like Resident Evil 2’s 1-Shot Demo that gave players one chance and 30 minutes to try out its remake of the 1998 classic.

The Resident Evil 3 demo will begin on March 19 at 12am ET on Xbox One and 1pm ET on PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam). The Resident Evil Resistance Open beta will start March 27 at 3am ET on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and 1pm ET on PC (Steam). The Open Beta will end on April 3.The demo will be a “slice of the full game” that will have players attempting to escape Raccoon City as Jill Valentine. Capcom also warns that even though Resident Evil 3 has a bit more of a focus on action when compared to Resident Evil 2, make sure to “conserve your ammo and items if you want to stand a chance of surviving.”

In our hands-on time with Resident Evil 3, which will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on April 3, we said that “not only does Resident Evil 3 feel as fresh and clever as its predecessor, it adds enough to potentially exceed it.”

The Open Beta of Resident Evil Resistance will allow players to try out the asymmetrical co-op take on the horror franchise. Each round consists of four Survivors that must work together to survive the traps and monsters that the player-controlled Mastermind puts in their way.

In our hands-on time with Resident Evil Resistance, which will be included with Resident Evil 3, we said that it very much feels like a mix of Resident Evil 7 and Friday the 13th: The Game.
