After its well-received remake of Resident Evil 2, Capcom is going back to Raccoon City to remaster the third entry in the survival horror series. The Resident Evil 3 reboot was confirmed during Sony’s State of Play stream on Tuesday, along with an April 3rd release date for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
If you played Resident Evil 3: Nemesis the first time around, you know that you’ll play as Jill Valentine. You will be trying to escape the city and the relentless creature, Nemesis, at around the same time as the events of Resident Evil 2 take place. The remake has updated visuals and more content and is built on Capcom’s RE Engine, which also powers Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, RE2 and Devil May Cry 5.
If you have not played this game for a while this is a good excuse to dive back in and now you can enjoy some of the updated material. We heard rumors of an RE3 reboot last month, and covers for the game popped up on PlayStation Network in early December. So it is nice to have confirmation. To sweeten the deal for you, the remake will include Resident Evil: Resistance, a 4-versus-1 survival game Capcom announced in September.
