Wrong date, Capcom confirms demo will hit PSN and Xbox LIVE by a ‘new date’.
It looks like we have to wait a little longer as RESIDENT EVIL 6 demo will land on PSN/Xbox LIVE. Correction; the demo will be out by ‘September 18th 2012’, not on September 5th 2012, (sorry for the wrong date everyone) and will release in the U.S, as well for Europe probably on the same day.
From the Press Release:
Capcom is pleased to confirm that from ‘September 18th 2012’, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 owners will be able to download the new RESIDENT EVIL 6 demo from Xbox LIVE and Playstation Store. The new demo features completely different content to that contained in the previously released RESIDENT EVIL 6 demo that was exclusively only to Xbox 360 owners with game Dragon’s Dogma.
Players will be able to dive into the content from RESIDENT EVIL 6’s three main campaigns, either solo or co-op with a partner online, and experience firsthand why it is one this year’s most ‘hotly anticipated titles’.
Play as either Leon S. Kennedy or Helena Harper and further explore the dark corridors and moonlit grounds of Ivy University, swarming with victims of the latest bioterrorist attack. The action in Jake’s mission switches to the neon-lit streets of Lanshiang as he and Sherry Birkin 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 stiff enough challenge , but that’s before the 3-story high B.O.W. Orgroman crashes the party.
Select Piers for a slightly different weapons loadout than Chris including a sniper rifle with thermal scope.
In addition, for those owners of the Playstation 3 version of Dragon’s Dogma, the exclusive demo previously only available for Xbox 360 owners will be available from September 5th 2012 to download via token redemption on the Playstation Store.
RESIDENT EVIL 6 will release on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 across Europe and North America on October 2nd 2012. PC version will soon follow at a later date.
