Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 remaster wasn’t supposed to launch until next Friday Australian time. But if you were hoping to stay unspoiled for the experience, bad news. Gamers in France have been getting their hands on final versions of the game after a retailer broke street date by almost a whole fortnight, resulting in social media and Twitch being flooded with videos.
Screenshots of various sections of the game, as well as videos of various segments. Forums like 4chan, NeoGAF and the Resident Evil subreddit are already full of little details, including the sizes of various areas, what the nemesis phases look like, changes in the remaster from the original, the list of game’s trophies and more.
At the time of writing, videos are still live on YouTube showing off Resident Evil: Resistance, the asymmetrical multiplayer game that ships with the Resident Evil 3 remake.
