On September 18th, Capcom will be releasing a new playable demo for Resident Evil 6, one that is completely different from the one that initially came with new Xbox 360 copies of Dragon’s Dogma when it launched months back and only just became accessible to PS3 owners of the fantasy action-RPG this week. (Check the back of your DD manual for the redemption code.)
No early exclusive access this time around, thankfully. This new demo will be out the same day on both PSN and Xbox Live, giving gamers just enough time to sample the game and make their buying decision before the full October 2nd launch.
The second Resident Evil 6 demo will offer trial missions from the game’s three main campaigns, playable solo or in online co-op. Here’s the skinny:
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.
