Resident Evil 6 Demo goes live

Posted September 18, 2012 by George Harvey in Announcements, Gaming News, PS3, Xbox 360

From September 18th, both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners will be able to download the new Resident Evil 6 demo from the Xbox LIVE marketplace and PlayStation Store. Experience first-hand why RE6 is one of this year’s most hotly anticipated titles with content from the game’s three main campaigns that can be played either solo or partnering up via online co-op.

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 off with fellow BSAA team members to the devastated streets of Edonia. The amassed J’avo forces will provide enough of a challenge, but as Resident Evil titles go, it likely wont stop there as you’ll expect to come face to foot with the towering B.O.W. Ogroman. Selecting different players for each mission will reward you with a few nice features unique to each character.

Resident Evil 6 is scheduled for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 across Europe and North America on October 2nd. PC gamers will have to wait a little longer.
