Resident Evil 6 demo due September 18 [Update]

Features new stages, available to all.

If you own Dragon’s Dogma, you’ve probably already played a portion of Resident Evil 6, thanks to the exclusive demo included within (PlayStation 3 owners can redeem their codes today). However, Capcom will release a new demo featuring different stages for Leon, Chris, and Jake, as well as online co-op, to the public on September 18 via PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE.

Currently, the demo has only been announced for Japan. But considering it’s a Tuesday (regular DLC update day) and Capcom’s worldwide tendencies, we’ll probably get it overseas on the same day. Keep checking back. We’ll update the post if Capcom’s U.S. or European branches send out an announcement.

Thanks, Biohazard 6.

Update 11:00 a.m.: Capcom has confirmed the demo for U.S. and Europe:

Capcom is pleased to confirm that from September 18, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners will be able to download a 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 exclusive to owners of the Xbox 360 version of Dragon’s Dogma.

Players will be able to dive into content from Resident Evil 6’s three main campaigns, either solo or partnering up via online co-op, and experience firsthand why it is one of 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 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.

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 5 to download via token redemption on the PlayStation Store.

    Ugh, great – I bought Dragon’s Dogma ages ago with the intent of also using it to get the Resi 6 demo… I got laser eye surgery a few days back however, and haven’t been able to really use the PS3 at all since, so looks like demo for me until who knows when…

    • Sounds like some rough times. I hope things get better soon! Hopefully, you won’t have to wait to much longer to play the demo? I hope not.

        Thanks!  Fortunately, smaller screens aren’t too difficult to use, so I’ve gotten some DS gaming in, but as soon as I look at a bigger screen my sight’s pretty sketchy… I’ll just imagine I’m enjoying it with everyone else!

    Ooh sweet! Will mark September 18th on mah calendar.

  • I just hope that the PS3 demo isn’t messed up like the Xbox 360 demo, where it was filled lots of screen-tearing.
