With the Resident Evil 3 Remake development nearing completion, we take a look at when you can expect the acclaimed title to hit shelves or, given the current global situation, online markets for download. 

The original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis released way back in 1999, garnering both critical and commercial success upon release. This popularity has spearheaded the movement to get the game remade, wishes which were met by developers Capcom in 2019, when they announced a remake would be on its way.

Since then, fan anticipation has been pretty high, as players relish the opportunity to replay the missions of Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliviera.

The original game saw Valentine and Oliviera traversing a zombie apocalypse, all while being hunted an intelligent bio-weapon known as ‘nemesis’. As this game represents a standard remake, we can expect a more or less identical story, albeit with much-improved graphics and game design.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake Release Date

With the announcement taking place back in December 2019, many fans expected a late 2020 release. However, Capcom have impressed almost everyone by announcing that Resident Evil 3’s remake will drop on April 3, 2020.

This is roughly five months since the remake was confirmed, meaning fans haven’t had to do nearly as much waiting as they do for other titles. The Last of Us 2, for example, is scheduled for a May 2020 release and was announced in late 2016.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Beta & Demo

There is currently a free-to-play demo available on Steam, as fans strive to get their hands on some content before the game’s full release.

Each edition of the RE3 remake was set to launch with a “Resident Evil Resistance” multiplayer game, for which a beta was supposed to launch on March 27. However, a last-minute hitch saw it only release on Xbox One, with the PC and PS4 versions being delayed.

At the time of writing, there have been no further updates on the status of the beta, but Capcom will be hoping to get the beta up and running as soon as possible.

This will allow players to familiarize themselves with what’s new before the game’s full release on April 3.

Apex Legends Evo shields are being nerfed again in Season 7

The Evo Shields in Apex Legends are set for another balance update that could come in Season 7, as Respawn are still fine-tuning how the armor upgrades to its max level.

Respawn brought the Evo Shields in the System Override patch in March, then made them a staple in the battle royale later on. Ever since then, the studio has been trying to find the right balance with the armor and its scaling defense as the game continues.

As for the studio, the hunt for that equilibrium to the item will continue as Respawn Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein indicated that players could have an increased damage threshold to hit before getting a fully evolved shield.

This change is still in the implementation phases, however, since Respawn need to tinker with the game’s networking to actually bring in the patch.

The Evo Armor values for max level will change, most likely in Season 7.

“We have a change planned for red Evo Shields for patch 7.0, but it required a little networking work (don’t ask; game dev is dumb) so we couldn’t ship it in 6.1,” Klein responded to a player who noticed there weren’t any changes to the shields in the Aftermarket update. “The plan is to increase the damage required to go to Red.”

At the time of writing, the Evo Shields need 500 damage inflicted to reach max level. That requirement is going to change, although the developer gave no indication for how much.

Complaints about the gear stem from how many people seem to have a fully upgraded Evo early in games.

Though this could be attributed to the typical gunfight fiestas that happen at any major POI after dropping into the Arena, the problem is going to get a closer look within the studio.

There’s no word if there will also be a change to the armor max Evo Shields provide, but it’s not likely since Respawn tuned that not too long ago when Season 6 started.

In any case, the company is hoping the next round of changes will leave Apex Legends in a healthier state as it concerns the popular Evo Shields in the game.
