The official box art for 'Resident Evil 6'.
Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners can now download the new Resident Evil 6 demo from Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Store.
Capcom's newly-released game demo allows players to experience first-hand content from the game's three main campaigns that can be played either solo or partnering up via online co-op.
Playing as either Leon S. Kennedy or Helena Harper, players will explore the dark corridors and moonlit grounds of Ivy University, which is 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 new J'avo enemies, including their fully mutated forms. Jake's special hand-to-hand combat moves and Sherry's stun baton are pivotal in their struggle to stay alive. Showcasing the global setting in Resident Evil 6, 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 three-story high B.O.W. Ogroman crashes the party. Players who select Piers will have at their disposal a slightly different weapons loadout than Chris, which includes a sniper rifle with thermal scope.
Resident Evil 6 will release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 across Europe and North America on October 2. A PC version will follow soon. The game has been rated "M for Mature" by the ESRB.
