PlayStation's State of Play livestream presentation announced on Tuesday that CAPCOM will release a remake of its Resident Evil 3 game on April 3. The game will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. The presentation also revealed a trailer for the game.
The release will include the Resident Evil: Resistance online game, which was previously titled "Project Resistance." CAPCOM describes the project as a "brand-new team-based survival horror experience." People who pre-order Resident Evil 3 will also receive a "Resident Evil 3 Classic Costume Pack."
CAPCOM's remake of the Resident Evil 2 survival horror game launched for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 25. The remake has third-person perspective gameplay (changed from the fixed camera angles of the original game), similar to the gameplay introduced in Resident Evil 4. The game received the "Ultimate Game of the Year" award at the Golden Joystick Awards 2019 ceremony in London in November.
The original Resident Evil 2 marked the introduction of the character Leon Kennedy, as he finds his first day on the Raccoon City Police Department marked by a sudden zombie infestation in the city. The game also centers on Claire Redfield attempting to find her brother Chris, one of the main characters of the first game.
The original Resident Evil (Biohazard) survival horror game debuted for PlayStation in 1996. Resident Evil 7: biohazard shipped for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in January 2017. The game shipped in Japan under the title Biohazard 7: resident evil.
