Good news for fans of being scared half to death in a world where a virus is sweeping around and making it unsafe to be outside; there's a Resident Evil 3 demo coming on March 19th. It's coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, which means you won't have to worry about where you're going to play it. Well, unless you're hoping for a Switch demo because that simply isn't going to happen.

The announcement came in a blog post from the all-powerful creators of the excellent Dragon's Dogma and Monster Hunter: World. The blog post states "We’re excited to announce that this highly anticipated demo for Resident Evil 3 is just a few days away. Featuring a slice of the full game that launches on April 3rd, you’ll step into the shoes of Jill Valentine as she attempts to make a desperate escape from Raccoon City as it rapidly descends into chaos. While there’s a bit more focus on action in Resident Evil 3 compared to last year’s Resident Evil 2, you won’t want to go in guns blazing – it may be a demo, but you’ll need to conserve your ammo and items if you want to stand a chance of surviving."

The good news though is that there was more to the blog post. In fact, we'll be getting a chance to try out Resident Evil Resistance thanks to an open beta later this month. Beginning on March 27th, it will be "providing everyone with a chance to try out this asymmetrical co-op horror game set in the Resident Evil universe. Take on the role of a Survivor as part of a team of four trying to escape from a twisted experiment designed to push them to their limits."

Honestly, more games can only be a good thing, and demos at the moment are sure to generate even more excitement than normal as well. It's all leading to the actual release of the game on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam on April 3rd. This marks another significant release in the rather chaotic next couple of months in gaming, with things like Final Fantasy VII remake following shortly after. Of course, it could well be that you think things actually kick off in a couple of days with both Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing New Horizons coming out on March 20th. It's definitely a good time to be into video games.
