Shortly after the release of Resident Evil 2, the reimagining of its sequel for the original Sony Playstation, Resident Evil 3, receives a similar treatment for modern consoles. The spiritual successor pays homage to the classic that debuted in 1999.
Resident Evil 3 Remake recounts the events of one of S.T.A.R.S. former surviving members, Jill Valentine of the Alpha Team. Days after the mansion incident that took place in the outskirts, Jill attempts to desperately make it out alive from Raccoon City. With the streets in ruins, Jill encounters many threats lurking in the shadows, and among them a dangerous pursuer is on the loose.
Resident Evil 3 was first shown on December 10, 2019 in Sony’s State of Play presentation. The glimpse captured an unsettling first-hand person experience of an unknown survivor desperately searching for an escape route. The cinematic eventually revealed the survivor to be Jill Valentine. The next trailer, which appeared on January 17, 2020, gave a montage that shifts between cutscenes and gameplay, and shows off the perspective of other survivors during the Raccoon City incident.
The game’s official release date was teased on the State of Play presentation. Resident Evil 3 will be released on April 3, 2020 for the PlayStation 4.
New Combat System
Relative to the classic, Resident Evil 3 Remake adapts the same combat system that was introduced in the reimagined Resident Evil 2. Gameplay takes on a third-person, over-the-shoulder perspective with free movement. Players can also interact with the environment through the use of action buttons. So far, players can find new objects that they can interact with which are fairly similar to the street lights from the classic title. Shooting these can briefly stun zombies which gives players enough time to align your sights or bolt for a quick escape. Another new feature is the quick evade which can be done by a combination of button presses. These evasive moves are different from the perfect dodge which is left intact as well.
Some Classic Elements Return
Unlike Resident Evil 2, the game also includes a perfect dodge mechanic, a feature similar to the classic games which can help players avoid enemy grapples by pressing the X button at the right time.
Another returning feature are gas canisters. Players can lure a horde of enemies near red oil drums and then make quick work of them with a well-placed gunshot. Mastery of this technique can help save precious rounds which can prove useful for boss encounters later on.
Redesigned Characters and Enemies
Almost all of the characters have their appearances redesigned. As early as the first trailer in the State of Play presentation, the heroine, Jill Valentine receives a rather subtle makeover. According to Mr. Kawata, the game’s producer, the reinvention of the outfit was brought about by the team’s desire to have the game lean towards action. For the heroine, she loses the tube top, skirt, and high boots in favor of a tank top, denims, and charcoal boots. Jill’s hair also gets a slight change in depth and her facial features appear more serious than demure. While Jill’s change is rather discreet, some of the other characters and enemies took more pronounced changes.
Expanded Areas and New Locations
Raccoon City has become bigger than ever before through the advent of new areas. Among them include areas such as the local shops, an underground subway, the sewers, and possibly many more. Returning sites such as the Raccoon City General Hospital and possibly the Dead Factory could potentially receive a similar treatment given how massive the streets have become. There are also new spots where Jill can return to and pick locks to earn extra loot which could be reminiscent of the optional backtracking that appeared in the original games.
