Resident Evil 3 Remake
Resident Evil 3 is a 2020 survival horror game developed and published by Capcom. Released for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, it is a remake of the 1999 game Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Players control former elite agent Jill Valentine and mercenary Carlos Oliveira as they attempt to find a vaccine and escape from a city during a viral outbreak. The game is played from an third-person perspective and requires the player to solve puzzles and defeat monsters while being pursued by a creature called Nemesis. Cutscenes with occasional quick time events are featured at regular intervals to advance the story.
Most of Resident Evil 3 was developed concurrently with the 2019 remake of Resident Evil 2 and both games run on Capcom’s RE Engine. Although it features the same premise as the original, many parts were rearranged in favor of a more focused story. To honor the more action-oriented approach of the original, developers revamped the movement speed and animations from the Resident Evil 2 remake and added the ability to dodge attacks. Because some features from the original game were excluded, a separate online multiplayer game, Resident Evil: Resistance, was bundled with Resident Evil 3.
Resident Evil 3 received generally favorable reviews from critics, who praised its compelling narrative, tense atmosphere, and graphics. Criticism was targeted at its short length and missing features from the original. The greater emphasis on action and scripted sequences also disappointed some critics. The game had sold 4.6 million copies by November 2021. A version with visual enhancements will be released for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and Series S in 2022, while the Windows version will be enhanced with a patch.
