Resident Evil 3 Modernizes the Climatic Events of Raccoon City on April 3rd, 2020

Witness the climactic events of Raccoon City in a completely reimagined Resident Evil 3. This highly demanded follow-up in the 94 million unit selling franchise comes on the heels of the award-winning Resident Evil 2, and completes the Raccoon City story arc.

Resident Evil 3 will also include the online 4vs1 asymmetric multiplayer experience Resident Evil Resistance when it releases on 3 April 2020 for the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Steam.


A series of strange disappearances have been occurring in the American Midwest within a place called Raccoon City. A specialist squad of the police force known as S.T.A.R.S. has been investigating the case, and have determined that the pharmaceutical company Umbrella and their biological weapon, the T-Virus, are behind the incidents—though they’ve lost several members in the process. Jill Valentine and the other surviving S.T.A.R.S. members try to make this truth known, but find that the police department itself is under Umbrella’s sway and their reports are rejected out of hand.

However, soon reports of a grisly “cannibal virus” begin to surface, and vicious dogs begin roaming the streets. With the viral plague spreading through the town and to her very doorstep, Jill is determined to survive. However, unbeknownst to Jill, an extremely powerful pursuer has already been dispatched to eliminate her.


An Umbrella-affiliated Mastermind presides over an experiment, as the subjects band together as Survivors to escape the test facility in this asymmetrical-multiplayer survival horror game. Enjoy the thrills of the divergent gameplay types in this exhilarating and unique game!
