Just like that, Resident Evil 3 is not only confirmed but coming in a few short months. During PlayStation’s State of Play, Capcom revealed that the long-rumoured remake is real and is bundled with Project Resistance, the asynchronous multiplayer revealed earlier this year.
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 acclaimed best-selling Resident Evil 2. Intense combat and puzzle-solving combine to deliver the heart-pounding final chapter of Raccoon City’s collapse.
