The Paranoid Gamer has received word from Capcom’s PR people that the official demo of Resident Evil 6 can now be redeemed from the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Marketplace – well, providing you’ve purchased a copy of Dragon’s Dogma, that is…
Our contact explained that the demo will deliver a taste of each protagonist’s campaign, putting players in the shoes of Raccoon City survivor Leon Kennedy, B.S.A.A. Captain Chris Redfield and mercenary Jake Muller (and before you ask, no, no comment was made concerning the rumoured ‘Fourth Survivor’ campaign believed to star ambiguous antihero Ada Wong).
If you, like me, haven’t bought Capcom’s above-average fantasy action-RPG, you’ll be glad to know that a public RE6 demo is scheduled to reach each console’s online store on September 4th. Is patience one of your virtues?
UPDATE (July 4th, 2012): it appears we’ve been misinformed; the demo detailed above is in fact exclusive to Xbox 360. PS3 Resi fans will have to wait two months to test drive this long-awaited survival horror title whether they own Dragon’s Dogma or not.
