Those of us eagerly anticipating the release of Resident Evil 6 next month can now get our hands on the long-awaited demo for the game. Featuring missions from Leon, Chris, Jake’s campaigns that can be played either solo or with an online partner, this demo should provide us with a thrilling introduction to Capcom’s most ambitious, costly production to date.
The demo is now available on the European PlayStation Store (as well as the Japanese and Hong Kong variants) and weighs in at 847 MB.
Here’s a detailed description of what you can expect in the demo:
“Play as either Leon S. Kennedy or Helena Harper and further explore the dark corridors and moonlit grounds of Ivy University, swarming with the victims of the latest bioterrorist attack.
“The action in Jake’s mission switches to the neon-lit streets of Lanshiang as he and Sherry Berkin fight off the new J’avo enemies, including their fully mutated forms. Jake’s special hand-to- hand combat moves and Sherry’s stun baton are pivotal in their struggle to stay alive.
“Showcasing the global setting in Resident Evil 6, Chris Redfield and Piers Nivans head with fellow BSAA team members to the war-ravaged streets of Edonia. The amassed J’avo forces provide a stiff enough challenge, but that’s before the three-story high B.O.W. Ogroman crashes the party. Select Piers for a slightly different weapons loadout than Chris including a sniper rifle with thermal scope.”
Resident Evil 6 will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 2nd worldwide. A PC version is expected to follow shortly thereafter.
