Resident Evil 6 NEW demo rides in today

A reminder that PS3 and Xbox gamers from today will be able to download the new demo for Resident Evil 6. The new demo boasts some new scenarios from the previous Dragon’s Dogma and public demo.

From Capcom’s official demo description it seems players will be able to sample some of content seen in the preview build we’ve been showcasing. Keep your eyes peeled on Xbox Live and PSN throughout the day. Here’s some teaser footage.

Update: The demo should now be available to PSN and Xbox Live subscribers.

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.
