Sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice cup of t-virus with this new Resi-3 trailer.
Capcom maybe re-hashing some old IP’s and games as of late, but boy are they doing it well. Resident Evil 2 remake was a major success, bringing the joys of a zombie outbreak to a whole new generation whilst fully sating the desires of gamers that played the original.
Well, next up on the schedule is Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. After a tantalising first teaser trailer a month or so back, we have now been gifted a new trailer that lets Nemesis himself take centre stage, whilst also showing off some of those pesky Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.) guys and of course Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) member Jill Valentine.
Check out the new trailer below and drool at the new cutscenes and lush action cinematics as we are introduced to Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis as they rip through Raccoon City.
Some of the other players in the trailer that you might not recognise are listed here with a brief description of who they are and what they are doing in Raccoon City.
- Brad Vickers – He is one of the sole survivors of the Mansion Incident (depicted in the original Resident Evil) and helped with investigations into Umbrella Corp. As one of the last surviving members of S.T.A.R.S. in Raccoon City, he’s also in Nemesis’ sights.
- Mikhail Victor – The U.B.C.S. commanding officer is a leader with years of military and commanding experience. Mikhail was seriously injured in his team’s mission to evacuate survivors from Raccoon City. Despite his dire circumstance, he still does as much as he can to help civilians and his platoon. It is his compassion to save Raccoon City’s citizens that convince Jill to help their cause.
- Nicholai Ginovaef – This U.B.C.S. team leader is incredibly resilient, cold and calculating, willing to make the necessary sacrifices for the mission and his own benefit. Nicholai dismisses Jill as a “bleeding heart” who will get herself killed.
- Tyrell Patrick – This U.B.C.S. member is a seasoned veteran specializing in hacking and disabling security devices. Tyrell provides invaluable support from behind the lines.
- Murphy Seeker – This U.B.C.S. member and former U.S. Marine is an exceptional sniper. Like Mikhail, he also gets seriously injured during the Raccoon City mission.
- Dario Rosso – A civilian Jill encounters in a warehouse in uptown Raccoon City who is reeling from the shock of losing his family. Dario rejects Jill’s pleas to escape the crumbling city.
- Hunter enemy – Both Jill and Carlos will encounter this terrifying new monster in Resident Evil 3. These bioweapons were created by combining the genetic material of humans and reptiles, creating an incredibly fast and powerful adversary.
Releasing 3 April, for Xbox One, PC (Steam), and PlayStation 4, we don’t have long to wait before we are running scared of the rocket – flame thrower – mini-gun wielding terror, and I can’t wait.
