Resident Evil 3 Remake Release Date
Surprisingly, you won’t have to wait very long to play this upcoming remake. Along with the debut trailer, Resident Evil 3 is set to release on April 3, 2020, for PS4, PC (Steam), and Xbox One. There’s no word if this title will be coming to the controversial Epic Games Store or the Nintendo Switch. Resident Evil 3 will release on all three of those platforms at the same time, so don’t worry about the PC version coming later.
Resident Evil 3 Remake Gameplay
While no gameplay was shown during the reveal trailer, some footage was released following the announcement. Thankfully, Resident Evil 3 will once again follow the same gameplay style as Resident Evil 2. Static cameras have been completely removed, with the camera now situated behind the shoulder of whichever protagonist you’re playing.
This makes combat much more harrowing, but also a little easier since you have much better control over who you’re aiming at. We also see in the brief clip shown that Jill can dodge when a zombie is attempting to grab her.

Resident Evil 3 – Resident Evil: Resistance
Perhaps the most intriguing addition to the Resident Evil 3 Remake is the Resistance multiplayer mode. This asymmetrical 4v1 multiplayer mode tasks players with either escaping the facility or stopping the survivors from leaving. If you pick the side of the survivors, you will need to fight off hordes of undead horrors with a variety of different weapons, traps, and perks. Each of the four characters has their own unique perks and archetypes, allowing users to act as a tank, support, damage dealer, or hacker.
Inversely, if you play as the Mastermind you’ll gain the ability to set traps or place various monsters throughout the complex. This can be anything from a single zombie to a Licker to angry, undead dogs. The Mastermind can even take control of the fearsome Mr. X and manually hunt down the survivors with this intimidating Tyrant.
