New Resident Evil 6 Demo Released

If you're not too busy playing Borderlands 2, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners can download a new demo of Resident Evil 6, Capcom said today. The demo is different from the one packed in with Dragon's Dogma.

The demo contains three sections, all highlighting action from each of the three playable campaigns for Leon, Chris, and Jake:

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 releases across Europe and North America on October 2. A PC version will follow soon, Capcom said.
