We reported earlier this week that the new movie, Resident Evil: Retribution is slated to come out this week. While fans of the series are no doubt satisfied with that fact alone, an announcement from Capcom just gave us all a bit more to be excited about. According to Capcom, a demo for Resident Evil 6 will be releasing on Playstation Network and for Xbox Live Gold Members on September 18th.
This is a first chance for many to get their chance to experience Resident Evil 6 before its release date on October 2, 2012. If you haven't had the chance to find out much about the game or the story that it is following here is a little preview from the official Resident Evil 6 website:
It has been over ten years since the Raccoon City incident and the President of the United States has decided to reveal the truth behind what took place in the belief that it will curb the current resurgence in bioterrorist activity. Due to be by the President's side is his personal friend and Raccoon City survivor, Leon S. Kennedy, but when the venue suffers a bioterrorist attack, Leon is forced to face a President transformed beyond recognition and make his hardest ever decision. At the same time, Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance member Chris Redfield arrives in China, itself under threat of a bioterrorist attack. With no country safe from these attacks and the ensuing outbreaks, the entire world's population is united by a common fear that there is no hope left.
In a first for the franchise, Resident Evil 6 sees series favorites Leon and Chris come together to face this unprecedented threat. They will be joined by new characters, each with their own unique perspective and involvement, in this relentless dramatic horror experience enacted on a global scale.
