After the large amount of rumors, the Resident Evil 3 remake was officially announced during Sony’s State of Play livestream on December 10. Capcom announced its remake will be available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and steam alongside a reveal trailer during the event. The Resident Evil 3 remake will be available in stores on April 3, 2020. As with this year’s remake of Resident Evil 2, the third game of the series will be redone with an over-the-shoulder perspective, allowing players to scan the details of the environment created by the RE Engine.

Players will play as Jill Valentine, who arrives in Raccoon City a few days before Leon and Claire do in Resident Evil 2. Unlike the last game however, she faces an even greater threat, as the more intelligent bioweapon known as the Nemesis tries to hunt her down as she travels forward through the zombie outbreak plaguing the city. Jill also has to deal with the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service, which is a private military force that started the outbreak.

Many were not surprised of the remake, but the campaign portion of the previously announced 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer take on the series, Project Resistance, wasn’t expected. Project Resistance consists of four survivors who try to survive the tricks and traps of the fifth player, the Mastermind, who wins by killing the survivors.

Pre-orders for Resident Evil 3 start today and all of them come with a Classic Costume Pack for Jill and Carlos. The Collector’s Edition, which is exclusive to North America, can also be pre-ordered at GameStop for $179.99. This will include a physical copy of the game, a Jill Valentine statue, digital soundtrack, art book, and reversible poster with a map of Raccoon City, all of it packaged in an item box straight out of the game.
