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.

The Last of Us Part 2 Delayed Indefinitely

Sony has delayed release of The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR for indefinite time until further notice.

In recent wake of Coronavirus pandemic, every major entertainment media including video game industry are being affected and upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive title The Last of Us Part II becomes one of its most recent causality.

Sony Interactive Entertainment has lately decided to postpone launch for two of their expected PS4 titles due to global crisis of COVID-19 that is disrupting related services from providing a standard launch experience for all players.

Originally, The Last of Us 2 had a February release date that was eventually delayed by developer Naughty Dog and moved to May 29, which is now delayed until further notice alongside VR shooter title Marvel's Iron Man VR.

It is safe to say that most recent delay in TLoU2 is not because of developers needing more time to work on it but because of logistics. Since Coronavirus is having impact on economy, Sony had no better option than pushing back its launch.

In a recent post through official Twitter account, Naughty Dog states that they were in the middle of fixing final bugs at this point. Even if they finish it up now, they can't make sure that everyone gets to play it around same time.

Therefore, studios settled on delaying The Last of Us Part 2 until logistic issues can be solved before release. Of course, neither dev team nor players are happy about the postponement but this will be a fair action to everyone right now.

Sony and Naughty Dog will be announcing updates on The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR as soon as they will have one. Unless they end up pushing back PlayStation 5 release date, these games may possibly arrive in summer 2020.
