Resident Evil 3 Remake Won't Have Any DLC

Game producer Peter Fabiano confirms no future add-ons or DLC updates for Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Though a series of successful modern-day remakes, developer/publisher Capcom has managed to reignite hype and receive acclaim for Resident Evil survivor horror series, which is concluded with recent release of Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Despite its bright sides, a faction of players believed RE3 Remake is relatively short for its AAA-price tag and hoping for some future DLC, a notion that has been shot down by game producer Peter Fabiano who called it a finished project.

In an interview with Silicon Era, producer Peter Fabiano was asked whether they are working on any tweaks or updates for RE3 and his straight answer of Resident Evil 3 being a finished product means there will be no future DLC.

Most people were just happy to see Jill Valentine return and everything else Capcom offered in RE3, except for old players who thought this definitive remake lacks content in terms of Clock Tower, Grave Digger and more that were cut out.

Resident Evil 3 Remake story campaign mode was very short and there was not enough to explore. RE3 came bundled with Resident Evil: Resistance for sure but these two halves still didn't offer a complete experience for many.

Majority of old-school fans weren't actually excited to find out that RE3 Remake will not feature multiple endings and iconic Mercenaries mode from 1999 original game, which was replaced by asymmetrical multiplayer mode Resistance.

Fabiano leaves no vagueness in his answer when he shut down any possibility of add-ons or DLC for Resident Evil 3. However, Capcom can always change their plan in future and eventually come up with something new to please their fans.

Also, his comment did not mean that Resident Evil: Resistance will not be receiving further DLC updates since it's an ongoing game. Capcom recently added new mastermind character Nicholai Ginovaef from RE3 for Resistance last month.

A large part of Resident Evil community who purchased RE3 Remake on launch don't really care for Resistance and therefore, lack of support for core game is heavily disappointing considering its full price and overwhelming fan reception.

With no hopes for DLC content to improve story mode of Resident Evil 3 Remake, players can now resort to finding more hidden Easter Eggs, do speedrunning, trying different difficulty settings and modding to squeeze out more from it.

Resident Evil 3 Changes Nemesis for Resident Evil 4 Connection

Resident Evil 3 Remake director Kiyohiko Sakata reveals Capcom made changes to Nemesis to relate directly with Resident Evil 4.

Seeing an immense success of Resident Evil 2 Remake last year, developer/publisher Capcom inevitably released its long-anticipated survival horror sequel Resident Evil 3 Remake earlier, which was also lauded by fans and critics.

In a recent interview of developers talking about including Nemesis in Resident Evil: Resistance, game director Kiyohiko Sakata reveals how development team made changes to RE3 to make a connection to Resident Evil 4 or its remake.

Sakata talks about a couple of aspects in RE3 Remake that are intentionally redesigned to align perfectly with later series installments. Some of these changes directly link creation of Nemesis to roots of RE3 follow-up title Resident Evil 4.

Instead of changing Nemesis's origin story, Capcom actually expanded on already established lore of its parasite. In original Resident Evil 3, Nemy was a clone of T-002 Tyrant type bonded with NE-α parasite, which explains his tentacles.

Though Nemesis was just a prototype B.O.W. and not a complete model, he had far greater strength than Mr. X. Moreover, he could use his tentacles to grab targets from distance or even create a new zombie-type called "Tentacle Head".

Just like Ganado enemies from RE4 that are humans infected by Las Plagas parasite, he could simply infect zombies with his tentacles. Umbrella Corporation created NE-α to imitate Plagas, thus differentiating Nemesis from other Tyrants.

Capcom maintained a similar aesthetic between Ganados and Nemesis-infected zombies for fans to easily connect the dots. Their ultimate goal was to properly fit him into Resident Evil franchise while paving a way for RE4 narrative.

As until now, Resident Evil 4 had no apparent connection to prior games except for return of Leon S. Kennedy and remained a standalone plot. Nemesis being created by a parasite similar to Las Plagas provides RE4 storyline a new depth.

Umbrella was simply able to find such an advanced parasite for Nemesis program from their research lab in Europe. It makes perfect sense as they took inspiration from Las Plagas, a parasitic organism that originated from Spain.

Even before Umbrella started working on Nemesis, their first parasite based bio-weapon was Lisa Trevor from Spencer Mansion. She successfully bonded to it as a host and research data on her eventually helped create Nemesis-T Type.

Capcom is very much likely to include more interesting alteration in upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake project, which is allegedly in works under several third-party and M-Two to help it relate with a larger Resident Evil universe.

Another report suggests that Capcom may reveal Resident Evil 8 very soon and end up releasing in 2021 before RE4, which originally started development as Resident Evil: Revelations 3 for PC and next-gen consoles in veins of Resident Evil 7.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Mod Turns Every Enemy Into T-Rex from Dino Crisis

Dino Crisis fan mod for Resident Evil 3 Remake gets Jill Valentine a Regina skin and turns all zombies into T-Rex.

Although fans are asking for a Dino Crisis remake, developer/publisher Capcom is seemingly busy reimagining classic survival horror franchise of Resident Evil and their most recent releases from the series being Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Despite continuous pleading to Capcom for reviving one of their beloved licenses, modder community on PC platform has taken it up on themselves to bring back nostalgia of rampaging dinosaurs in a latest RE3 mod titled "Dino Evil 3".

Available at Nexus Mods, players can download this fan mod by maliwei777 that is still in early testing phase and might have some issues. Hopefully, those minor issues of Version 0.1 will eventually be worked out and updated very soon.

Dino Crisis plays around some elements of survival horror and is helmed by Resident Evil series creator Shinji Mikami. However, instead of being forced to fend off against horde of zombies players are primarily chased by dinosaurs.

Playing as former S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine wearing a skin of U.S. Special Forces operative Regina surely is exciting but having every zombies of Raccoon City swapped with a deadly T-Rex is stuff of nightmare for sure.

What it seems that these dinosaur enemies don't have much movements or actions at this point as they need to do more work but you can get a pretty good idea of how well a potential Dino Crisis remake may look like in RE Engine.

In a recent frenzy of reviving many of their old IPs, Capcom has attempted to restore long-running Mega Man action platform franchise through recent re-releases of Legacy Collections and brand-new release of Mega Man 11 in 2018.

There were reports of Capcom filing a new trademark for Dino Crisis last year but no official announcement was made. Most recent rumor suggests that a Resident Evil 4 Remake is currently at works for a cross-gen release in 2022.

Capcom Surveys if Fans Want More Resident Evil Remake

Days after Resident Evil 3 Remake release, Capcom asks fans if they want more remake or new Resident Evil games.

Only days after launching anticipated remake of 1999 survivor horror classic Resident Evil 3,  developer/publisher Capcom were quick to surveying fans if they would like to get more Resident Evil Remake games for near future.

Although this survey doesn't shed light on which title Capcom is considering to remake next, there are more options than remakes. They are also interested to know if players are interested to purchase games from mainline series next.

A large part of fan-community is eager to see a remake of Resident Evil Code: Veronica, which is a follow up to Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 story wise; spawning a narrative for another new conspiracy of evil Umbrella Corporation.

Shortly after officially revealing Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 event, game director Kazunori Kadoi has even teased the idea of remaking Resident Evil: HD Remaster, which itself is a remake of original Resident Evil title of 1996.

RELATED: Resident Evil 3 Remake Mod Adds Isabelle from Animal Crossing

Capcom has already re-released ports of Resident Evil 4 over almost every available modern gaming platform so far with added improvements and yet, there are many who believe that RE4 should be remade to meet true perfection.

There are no hints of either they will start pursuing another reimagining project or release a numbered Resident Evil game though. Code: Veronica is a two-decade old game now, which has massive popularity and demand for among fans.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Rumored to Release in 2021

One particular answer choice "I will purchase the game even if I had to buy a new console" suggests that Capcom is trying to decide if a new Resident Evil game for next-gen consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X would be a good idea.

For participating in latest online survey, Capcom is offering you some bonus wallpapers of Resident Evil 3 Remake. Though their inquiry is primarily focused on Asian-based countries, players from other countries can take part as well.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Mod Adds Isabelle from Animal Crossing

Isabelle Mask mod for Resident Evil 3 Remake lets Jill Valentine masquerade as Isabelle from Animal Crossing series.

Whenever a highly anticipated video game comes out on any PC gaming platform, modding community takes it upon themselves to change certain characters or aspects for fun, as we saw last year with Resident Evil 2 Remake.

What probably no one has saw coming was Isabelle from Animal Crossing being modded into newly released Resident Evil 3 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom but the end result may not be what many were expecting at all.

Often time mods are used to swap main characters with protagonist or antagonists of some other franchise and one would generally expect Isabelle to take place of Nemesis and hunting down Jill Valentine throughout Raccoon City.

However, modder Crazy Potato had a different yet simpler idea of giving Jill a mask of Animal Crossing's cheerful assistant. Her transition from ex-S.T.A.R.S. member into a carefree spirit, wandering around a zombie-infested city is hilarious.

Latest installment of Animal Crossing social simulation game series, Animal Crossing: New Horizons came out on March 20, same day with acclaimed first-person shooter Doom Eternal and became part of many fan-made crossovers.

Players are busy creating loads of stuff from iconic franchises in New Horizons and aspects of its own are now part of another very different genre that has nothing to do with being cutesy at all, thanks to creative ideas of Crazy Potato.

Isabelle Mask mod for Resident Evil 3 is currently available at Nexus Mods website and sized only 12.4 MB. Although watching Isabelle to get punched by Nemesis or getting bitten by zombies on-screen would be rather disturbing.

Resident Evil 3 Remake is out now on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which includes a 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer experience titled Resident Evil: Resistance that replaces fan-favorite Mercenaries Mode from 1999 original.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Player Beats Game on Hardcore Mode, No-Hit Run

YouTuber CarcinogenSDA is back at it again with a "no-hit" walkthrough run on hardcore mode for Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Even if you are a fan of Resident Evil series who believes that newly released Resident Evil 3 Remake has not everyone hyped like Resident Evil 2 Remake of last year did, you have to admit that Nemesis is getting more attention than Mr. X.

There are many speedrunners and series veterans out there, who are already on making playthroughs and one of them is YouTuber CarcinogenSDA, who recently uploaded a complete no damage run of RE3 Remake on hardcore mode.

Aside from taking down regular Raccoon City zombies on streets, he gave useful tips on tackling Hunter Gamma enemies in sewer area as well as Hunter Beta at Spencer Memorial Hospital while playing as U.B.C.S. operative Carlos Oliveira.

In his gameplay commentary, Carci gave detailed instructions on where to find ammo, useful items and cool Easter eggs. Even though it was a no-hit run, he revealed all possible locations for First Aid Spray and herbs but picked none.

RELATED: Resident Evil 3 Remake Demo Throws Shade at Resident Evil 6

All five mutated stages of Nemesis were nicely done including his final form, without talking a blow of course. Although there was one time before his final appearance where Carci almost took a hit from the creature but survived by an inch.

Resident Evil 3 Remake received a common criticism from fans of being very short in length, yet no one complained about its difficulty like last year with Resident Evil 2 and so, maybe we will even see CarcinogenSDA do a knife-only run very soon.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Out Now

Remake of survival horror classic, Resident Evil 3 from Capcom is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

It's time to go back to Raccoon City to uncover ulterior motives of evil Umbrella Corporation and expose them as Resident Evil 3 Remake from developer/publisher Capcom is finally out today for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Following an immense success of Resident Evil 2 Remake last year, Capcom made an attempt at reimagining 1999 survival horror classic with slight gameplay changes, new characters, brand-new multiplayer mode and much more gore.

Whereas RE2 protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield were busy trying to get out alive with young Sherry Birkin, former S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine was still living in the city after surviving "Mansion Incident" at Arklay Mountains.

During her stay at Raccoon City alongside pilot Brad Vickers, her investigation on of Umbrella's activities led her to come across Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service operatives Carlos Oliveira, Mikhail Victor and Nikolai Zinoviev.

As they try to escape in a cable car amidst a T-Virus outbreak, Jill is hunted by a sentient bio-weapon called Nemesis. Umbrella has deployed this monster to kill all remaining members of police and S.T.A.R.S. to clear any evidence against them.

Nemesis is an ultimate pursuer who would stop at nothing to get his targets and can use weapons as well. Unlike G-Virus infected William Birkin or previous tyrant creature Mr. X, he possesses a superior intellect, thanks to improved AI.

Capcom also took the liberty of introducing a 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer mode Resident Evil: Resistance as a multiplayer experience, instead of widely popular mini-game mode "The Mercenaries: Operation Mad Jackal" from original RE3.

Four players would assume role of survivors to fight against creatures and deadly traps set by an evil genius, played by a fifth player. Characters from Resident Evil lore like Annette Birkin and Ozwell Spencer would be available as Mastermind.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Demo Throws Shade at Resident Evil 6

Through an Easter Egg within recently released Resident Evil 3 Remake demo, Capcom is taking shot at Resident Evil 6.

Fans of survival horror game series Resident Evil are currently busy playing as former S.T.A.R.S. officer Jill Valentine in newly released Raccoon City demo of Resident Evil 3 Remake and trying to find their way out of a zombie-infested town.

Although recently released RE3 demo only contains an early section of the game, there are many Easter Eggs for prying eyes and one of them seems to be mocking Resident Evil 6, one of the most divisive releases of entire RE franchise.

Raccoon City demo is full of connections to past titles and important details regarding T-virus outbreak. Wandering across streets and underground subway, you can see a many posters out there and one of them even features RE3 key art.

Players can notice one particular in-game poster for a fictional movie titled "Disaster" at one point that is a parody of RE6 box art. It may seem like a coincidence but developer/publisher Capcom is clearly a referencing to their failed 2012 game.

Though Resident Evil 6 has sold over 9.2 million copies and is the third best-selling Capcom game, it received lowest scores for any RE games. Moreover, RE6 moved over from horror genre and almost became an action experience.

Despite having nearly 600 people working on it, players have heavily criticized it for gameplay, story, and overall pacing problem. Critics have generally hated it for those same reasons as well and therefore, technically it was a disaster.

Last year, Capcom inserted a number of in-game secrets in Resident Evil 2 Remake for players to discover like age old joke of "Jill Sandwich" on a restaurant flyer and a reference to helicopter pilot Brad Vickers in a recruitment poster for S.T.A.R.S.

Resident Evil 3 Remake is scheduled to arrive on April 3, 2020 for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On release, there will presumably more Easter Eggs to discover and hopefully one of them ends up teasing a Dino Crisis remake.
