New Resident Evil 6 demo to arrive September 18

An all-new demo for Resident Evil 6 — separate from the Xbox 360-exclusive one that was incentive to purchase Dragon's Dogma — will be available for all PS3 and Xbox 360 owners on September 18.

Capcom announced that the demo will feature completely different content that will allow players to experience a little of each of the three main campaigns Resident Evil 6 offers. Below is a brief description of the three demo campaigns:

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.

Additionally, the previously released exclusive demo for Xbox 360 will soon be made available for owners of the PS3 version of Dragon's Dogma. It will be available from September 5 to download via token redemption on the PlayStation Store.

Resident Evil 6 is set to release on Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 2. A PC version will follow shortly after.
