New Resident Evil 6 Demo Incoming

Capcom said today it's releasing a new demo of Resident Evil 6 that features content from the three main campaigns, either solo or co-op. The content differs from the demo previously released with Dragon's Dogma.

The new demo arrives on September 18 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

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 J’avo, including their fully mutated forms. Be sure to check out Jake’s special hand-to- hand combat moves and Sherry’s stun baton as you struggle to stay alive.

Showcasing Resident Evil 6’s global setting, 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 3-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.

Capcom also said the Dragon's Dogma demo for PlayStation 3 is available on September 5 via a download token. Resident Evil 6 releases on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 across Europe and North America on October 2. A PC version will follow soon, Capcom says.
