This week is going to be a great week for everyone. DOOM Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons are both coming out. Before that console and PC players will be able to download the demo for Resident Evil 3. Capcom has announced that the demo will be available to play this Thursday, March 19th.
The demo will be out on the Xbox One at 12 am ET, Playstation 4 and Steam at 1 am ET. That’s 9 pm and 10 pm tonight for players on the West coast. Players who complete the demo will witness a new trailer. If just playing in the demo isn’t enough, Capcom has a special scavenger hunt in the game as well.
“As if Jill’s battle was not daunting enough, Capcom also invites players to test their limits with a challenging Mr. Charlie scavenger hunt within the Raccoon City Demo. Twenty Mr. Charlie statues are strewn across Raccoon City; can you seek and destroy all of them with Nemesis hot on your heels? An on-screen counter will help players keep track of their acquired statues and a final count will be displayed upon the demo’s completion.”
Starting on March 27th, 3 am ET for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and 1 pm ET for Steam, players will be able to join in on the Resident Evil Resistance open beta. This 4 vs 1 online experience will place survivors into a Saw like situation. The other player will be Daniel Fabron, the mastermind who has decided to run experiments with people and bioengineered terrors. Work together to escape the experiment alive. That beta will be for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC players as it ends on April 3rd. Resident Evil 3 is expected to be released on April 3rd.
