Resident Evil 3 Remake new features were revealed Tuesday.
Chief among the new mechanics is a dodge that allows players to escape clutching zombies. Players can also perform Perfect Dodges by pressing a button at the exact right moment. Performing the dodge correctly opens a counter window in which players can fire a response.
Resident Evil 3 Remake New Features Revealed
To accommodate this dodge, Capcom has redesigned many of Raccoon City's environments. On top of the new layer of visual polish, the developer has expanded areas and reimagined sequences from the original game.
Resident Evil 3 introduced ammo crafting to the series in 1999, and the feature returns in the remake — as it did in the Resident Evil 2 remake. Unlike in that game, Jill's knife won't degrade. It also won't be used as a self-defense weapon, making the Perfect Dodge her primary line of defense.
As players progress through the game Jill will be able to pick yellow padlocks scattered throughout the environments. Some of those padlocks will reveal weapon mods, another new addition to the game.
Enemies will include the iconic Nemesis monster, the Hunter Gamma, Drain Deimos and more. Players will need to use environmental features such as explosive barrels or electrical boxes to deal with these foes efficiently.
Capcom confirmed plans for a Resident Evil 3 remake demo Tuesday. The game is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on April 3.
