Resident Evil 3

The demo for the Resident Evil 3 remake has begun rolling out in certain regions.

Here are the download links:

(The demo’s official release date is March 19. Download links for other regions / platforms will be added as they become available.)

While Xbox One users can download the demo through the links regardless of their account region, PlayStation 4 users will have to create an account for that region to download the demo. Otherwise, wait till the demo becomes available in your region. (Thanks, @Wario64.)

Here is an overview of the demo, via Capcom:

The “Resident Evil 3: Raccoon City Demo” lets players step into the boots of the legendary heroine Jill Valentine, as she teams up with Carlos Oliveira and the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.) to evacuate civilians from a crumbling Raccoon City. While Jill is fighting to save innocent civilians, she must also save herself from the relentless bioweapon Nemesis, whose sole objective is her demise. The Raccoon City Demo will reveal a brand new cinematic trailer exclusive to demo participants upon completion.

As if Jill’s battle was not daunting enough, Capcom also invites players to test their limits with a challenging Mr. Charlie scavenger hunt within the “Raccoon City Demo.” Twenty Mr. Charlie statues are strewn across Raccoon City; can you seek and destroy all of them with Nemesis hot on your heels? An on-screen counter will help players keep track of their acquired statues and a final count will be displayed upon the demo’s completion.

Resident Evil 3, which includes Resident Evil Resistance, is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 3. Read more about the game here and here.
