Resident Evil 6 is one of the more popular titles to come out this holiday season. The demo that shipped with Dragon’s Dogma was an absolute blast, but it was rather limited in scope. Capcom promised a much meatier demo that gives us more time with all three characters, and that demo launches today.

Capcom announced that the Resident Evil 6 demo is now out on Xbox Live. The demo would normally show up on the PSN later today with the weekly update, but it’s apparently available now. Gamers are reporting that PS3 owners should just search for Resident Evil 6 on the PSN, and it should show up.

The demo in question will allow players to go through a small section of all three main campaigns. The first features Leon and Helena as they make their way through Ivy University. This is the part of the demo that Conan O’Brien fearlessly tackled last week.

Chris Redfield will be making his way through the streets of Edonia. If it’s anything like the previous demo, expect a lot of big bio-terror monsters that are more like classic Resident Evil monsters. The final demo features newcomer Jake as he takes on the new Javo enemies on the streets of Lanshiang.

Resident Evil 6 has a lot resting on its shoulders. Many fans, including yours truly, were disappointed by Resident Evil 5. It was a great game, but it just lacked the magic that previous games had. The previous Resident Evil 6 demo I played brought back the tension that the series was previously known for. Old school fans are going to especially love Leon’s campaign as he fights classic zombies.

  • nick

    What time did it come out in europe when is usa psn gonna get it

    • Leland

      Came out in Europe and Japan at 4 in the morning Eastern US time. It probably won’t come to PSN US. Microsoft is bribing Capcom to make Re6 look good on only xbox (that’s why xbox got the demo first; Capcom are sellouts) even though xbox’s weak processor makes all that nasty screen tearing we see in the trailers. You’ll have to wait a month till the actual game comes out.

  • jordyy

    6:15 eastern time still nothin

    • nick

      I know this is crazy

    • oooyeah

  • Shacoy

    Just create a Japanese, or European account then download it from there. And when you sign in it’ll be playable to your original account.

  • Lotion

    I was correct more or less.

    • oooyeah

      Thank you capcom. This feels like modern survival horror. Nothing wrong with action smooth gameplay. As long as u don’t leave out the survival horror suspense and search collect read or learn items. This already tops re 5 hands down. Just finished all demo campaigns. Very pleased very satsified.

  • Joe Bro

    This demo was awesome, except Jake’s:/ so psyched 4 game

  • Adem

    Ive played through the campaign 20 times im addicted. I love it brings the resident evil i played as a kid back on its feet. Great job capcom.
