The multiplayer mode makes up for no second scenario.
There was a lot to love about last year’s acclaimed remake of Resident Evil 2. From the faithful recreation of the original title’s story and settings, to the skilfully modernized gameplay design. It also kept the choice of playing between two beloved and iconic characters through their own campaign. The remake of Resident Evil 3 is coming this year, and it’s sure to be just as good. It will also come with the Resident Evil Resistance multiplayer title that takes bits and pieces from the franchise’s lore in the familiar Raccoon City.
While originally, both were separate titles, at some point it was decided to combine the two into one package. The main driving force was that, unlike Resident Evil 2, RE3, like the original game, does not have two campaigns, as explained by Producer Masachika Kawata to 4Gamer. Instead it focuses solely on one protagonist, Jill Valentine (though Carlos will have playable sections).
Of course, for those who played Resident Evil 2, it’s known that the Leon and Claire campaigns were largely identical, with only different cutscenes and a few areas changed up. Still, though, it gave a nice dose of more content. That’s something 3 doesn’t have, unless major changes would be made to the game’s plot and structure.
Regardless, one of the great things about Resident Evil titles is their replay factor, with speed-running and the like. Even with a single unified campaign, there’s sure to be plenty of that built into Resident Evil 3, and Resistance looks like it has potential to be quite the fun multiplayer romp as well. Both titles will launch as part of a single package on April 3rd, so we’ll get to see then.
