Resident Evil 3 is a remake of the survival horror classic, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, which was originally released back in 1999. The remake brings overhauled visuals and revamped over-the-shoulder camera gameplay. According to developer Capcom, both characters and zombies are based on real people, scanned using photogrammetry.
Story-wise, Resident Evil 3 follows Jill Valentine as she tries to escape the zombie-infested Raccoon City. To make matters worse, she’s being hunted by Umbrella Corporation’s relentless bioweapon Nemesis.
In addition to the story campaign, the game includes Resident Evil Resistance, an asymmetrical multiplayer mode that pits four Survivors against a single Mastermind. The Survivors attempt to escape an experimental Umbrella facility riddled with zombies and traps controlled by the fifth player.
