Only over a minute long, the trailer shifts first-person perspective of announcement footage to a third-person view where former S.T.A.R.S. officer Jill Valentine is shown to have been struggling to get out of her pursuer's way.

She made it out of a flaming apartment and their confrontation hits streets of the city where Nemesis hurls her onto a car using his tentacles but help comes her way soon in form of a surviving U.B.C.S. member Carlos Oliveira.

He and his fellow mercenary Tyrell Patrick is seen to head for Raccoon City Police Department, before or after Leon S. Kennedy made his rounds. Jill later meets with rest of his friends like Mikhail Victor and others inside a cable car.

Sergeant Nikolai Zinoviev thinks Jill is a liability and then she ran off to distract her approaching adversary from them. Gameplay moments of shooting down zombies and what is likely seem to be Hunter creatures are showed in between story bits.

Though Nemesis is designed using model of Mr. X, he is much more strong and intelligent due to an improved AI used by Capcom. In past, he only used to carry a rocket launcher but now he has a huge flamethrower mounted on his back.

His persuade of Jill is more intense than it was in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis since most of his interaction is not scripted. There will be more fateful encounters with this monstrosity and he is well equipped to do much more damage than before.

This cat-and-mouse game eventually comes to an end when her chaser comes in front of her car and they both crash. Future trailer launching ahead of RE3 release would likely to feature further mutation of this enraged beast.

Players will have to wait only a few months until they can get their hands on Resident Evil 3 Remake on all major platforms and step into a reimagined Raccoon City for an exciting journey of survival amidst an iconic outbreak from 1999.

Elden Ring Will Be Showcased at Taipei Game Show

Upcoming action RPG game Elden Ring from From Software to be shown at Taipei Game Show 2020.

Right after HBO's fantasy drama TV series Game of Thrones ended; there was a rumor of its creator George R. R. Martin working with popular Japanese studio From Software that turns out to be upcoming action role-playing game Elden Ring.

Then an official announcement trailer was dropped back in E3 2019 and there has been no buzz about the game ever since until now but looks like, fans are going to see more of its RPG action next month at Taipei Game Show 2020.

This show will take place from February 6 to 9 and the dark fantasy title will be showcased during presentation by Sony. Although attendees won't be able to get a hands-on playing experience, a new footage will likely to get revealed.

At this point, people have no solid idea of what to expect from latest title of Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki. Nevertheless, everyone is excited to see From Software attempting to explore open-world genre for very first time.

In September 2019, a leaked listing from Target retail chain suggests the game has a release window set for June 2020. Most recently, From Software official site has reaffirmed the same date on a New Year card, making it more obvious.

Elden Ring has been under development from 2017 right after Dark Souls III final DLC, The Ringed City was released. Given their past record of shipping games quickly, a release date set for this year will not be very much surprising at all.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Won't Have Mercenaries Mode and Multiple Endings

Upcoming Resident Evil 3 will not include Mercenaries Mode and multiple endings like 1999 original title.

We are only less than four months away from release of upcoming highly-anticipated survival horror game Resident Evil 3 Remake from developer/publisher Capcom for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 3, 2020.

Although RE3 is a remake of original 1999 game, it will undergo a few makeovers than last year's Resident Evil 2 Remake. A few features like fan-favorite Mercenaries mode and multiple endings will not make it to final version.

When news surrounding RE3 Remake has first emerged online, many fans assume to see return of Mercenaries mode but that hope is shot down in an interview with Capcom producers from recent issue of official PlayStation Magazine UK.

There were several unique endings in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, which would often occur when players would follow different paths willingly or sometime forcibly but developers bailed out on that as well in favor of a definitive main story.

Twitter user Nibellion has posted these newly revealed details along with a Reddit link for pages from OPM.

Upon completion of RE3: Nemesis story mode, a mini-game mode titled "The Mercenaries: Operation Mad Jackal" would eventually unlock and task players to complete a bunch of objectives throughout Raccoon City in set time.

Players could take control of one of Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service members Carlos Oliveira, Mikhail Victor and Nikolai Zinoviev. This is more like an extended version of bonus modes from RE2 featuring HUNK and Tofu.

In latest reimagining of a classic, they are cutting off Mercenaries in favor of its asymmetrical multiplayer mode Resident Evil: Resistance that lets four players to take part as survivors against a fifth one taking role of a Mastermind.

This character can pit survivors into traps and send zombies or Mr. X after them to stop them from getting away. Revealed earlier in a glitch, Umbrella scientist Annette Birkin will also be a playable Mastermind with her ultimate being G-monster.

Despite not being explorable as an open-world game, you will be able to explore city hospital, shops and streets in RE3. At one point, Jill will find herself into Raccoon City sewer system and come across returning enemies like mutant worms and such.

Other than being completely redesigned in a new avatar, Carlos Oliveira will be playable for an extended level than his original run. His role in getting a cure of T-virus from hospital will most likely be prolonged in latest iteration of the game.

Also, main antagonist character Nemesis would be based on model of Mr. X from RE2 but will receive an improved version of AI. Developers have created a lifelike version of the Tyrant monster to scan it using photogrammetry tech.

Unlike earlier, his appearance is not scripted or restricted on Raccoon City Police Department corridors anymore. Instead, he will now out without a leash and roaming around seeking for his primary target, former S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine.

RELATED: Capcom Open to More Resident Evil Remake

Compared to brand-new online experience Project Resistance within Resident Evil universe, Mercenaries mode had significantly less content to work on and old-school RE3 fans who likes to play alone would surely miss it a lot.

Although Mercenaries mode in Resident Evil 3 doesn't offer much gameplay depth, it still is an enjoyable experience with nostalgic value. Therefore, getting rid of this unlockable mini-game from its remake actually makes less sense. 

Doom and Doom 2 Gets 60 FPS Support

In a latest update, Bethesda adds 60 FPS, quick saves and add-on support for classic Doom games re-releases.

In a rather surprising move, classic first-person shooter games Doom, Doom II and Doom 3 were re-released back in July 2019 during keynote events of QuakeCon for Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Even though they were well received, these games were not without some shortcomings in terms of save functions and visuals but a recent update from publisher Bethesda Softworks has attempted to address them on all platforms.
