Cannot wait till the launch of Resident Evil 3 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come April 3rd 2020? Got some spare cash just sitting there ready to burn? The Resident Evil 3 Collector’s Edition is going to be something you won’t want to miss.
Available for pre-order in Europe right now, the Resident Evil 3 Collector’s Edition is something of sheer delight, including not just the base game of Resident Evil 3, not just the 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer experience that will be Resident Resistance, and not just a stunning Jill figurine, but also a hard cover art book and a ton more – namely a Raccoon City map wall poster and a 2-disc Resident Evil 3 soundtrack.
Shortly available from selected retailers in Europe and the EMEA region. Resident Evil 3 will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC (Steam) come April 3rd 2020, with a completely reimagined RE3 following hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 2.
This highly demanded follow-up in the near-100 million unit selling franchise once again utilizes Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine to complete the Raccoon City story arc, seeing Jill Valentine – one of gaming’s most iconic heroines – attempt to escape from a crumbling Raccoon City while being pursued by the unrelenting bioweapon Nemesis. The question is, will it be able to gather up a place alongside the very best Resident Evil games so far?
But that’s not all and players can also participate in previously untold Umbrella experiments on the outskirts of Raccoon City in the included online asymmetrical multiplayer game Resident Evil Resistance, previously known as Project Resistance.
It is Resistance that sees players assuming the role of key Resident Evil characters like Annette Birkin in a series of deadly experiments, manipulating the environment and wielding a deck of cards to place vicious creatures, set traps and weaponized security cameras to snare hapless Survivors. A first for the franchise, Masterminds can even directly control elite bioweapons like G-Birkin and Tyrant. In turn, four Survivors must effectively work together, making the most of a variety of weapons and each player’s unique special abilities, to stand a chance of escaping the experiment before time runs out.
Resident Evil 3 is set amidst the nightmarish outbreak of the T-virus, a biological weapon developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella Corporation. The game marks the debut of Nemesis – a towering humanoid bioweapon designed for both brutality and high-functioning intelligence – whose dogged hunt of S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine made him an icon of the Resident Evil series. Armed with an arsenal of high-powered weaponry and wrapped in a black suit to hide his mutilated features, Nemesis will maim, pulverize or destroy any obstacle on the path to his target.
Jill’s harrowing escape takes place in the panic-stricken hours leading up to and following the events of the best-selling Resident Evil 2. Intense combat and puzzle solving combine to deliver the heart-pounding final chapter of Raccoon City’s collapse. The horrific settings from the original game and new content come to life as never before with RE Engine, previously utilized to create the acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5 with high-definition graphics and modernized gameplay mechanics.
