Lately there has been an influx of news surrounding Resident Evil 6. The latest of that is announcing that Resident Evil 6 demo will be available for download on the Xhox 360 and PlayStation 3 starting on September 18th, Capcom has announced. I’m going to throw a guess out there, but I’m almost thinking that this means we could most likely expect a September 19th launch for PlayStation 3 gamers in Europe. The 19th also launches on a Wednesday, which is when the European PlayStation store routinely updates are. That said, it’s a highly likely chance that if it does not launch on the 19th, we’ll at least be seeing it the following week.
Capcom has promised that this demo would be very different from the one that was unlock for Xbox 360 Dragon’s Dogma owners earlier this year. Which is good, as it brings more uniqueness to the game and may even get it a good publicity push. However though, the structure of the demo variant of Resident Evil 6 is very similar. Players will get to “sample” a level from three of the game’s single-player campaigns. Yes, three of them. That said, they’re trying to give you just enough to get hooked onto the game. I personally am already a huge fan of the series, I got the chance to play previous installments of the game on the Xbox 360.
The three single-player campaigns will include Leon S. Kennedy’s section which will be taking players through the zombie-infested area of Ivy University (this section will probably end up being a favorite). The second section is with Jake and Sherry Birkin who will be fighting vicious mutants off on Asia in the country of China. As for the third section, players will go along with Chris Redfield and his BSAA and battle BOWs in Eastern Europe.
Leon S. Kennedy’s section will take players to the zombie-infested grounds of Ivy University, while Jake and Sherry Birkin fight mutants in China. Chris Redfield and his BSAA squad battle BOWs (Bio Organic Weapons, which are essentially mutant creatures with some sentience) in Eastern Europe. Overall the demo and the game itself is starting to sound really cool and I think many people looking forward to this game is really going to be in for an awesome time once they pick up this game.
Still, while most everyone will be waiting for the demo variant of the game on September 18th, PlayStation 3 owners of Dragon’s Dogma will be able to download their version much earlier as the first day of the demo for them is only a day a way. Of course, if you go and pick up a copy of Dragon’s Dogma today, it’s possible you still might get access to the demo. Don’t hold me to that or not because I couldn’t find anything that guaranteed that, just speculation, sorry! That said, if you were wanting to get a copy of Dragon’s Dogma anyway, today might be a good day to do so on the off chance that you’ll get in the demo early!
