Resident Evil 6 demo out now on Xbox 360 for Dragon’s Dogma owners

Resident Evil 6

The demo for Resident Evil 6 is now out on Xbox Live since yesterday. If you bought a copy of Dragon’s Dogma on the Xbox 360, you can start downloading the demo which contains one mission of each of the three campaigns in the game. Just in case you didn’t buy Dragon’s Dogma on the Xbox 360, I gathered all three demo’s for our viewing pleasure.

Thanks IGN for creating the video with some commentary.I prefer trying the game myself, but this will have to do for now. I was originally planning to get Dragon’s Dogma on my 360, but to my surprise, the 360 version was actually out of stock. So I bought the PS3 version instead. Enough of my rant, here are the videos below.

Chris Demo

Jake Demo

Leon Demo

Have no idea why IGN doesn’t have Leon, so I found another source.

With Resident Evil 6 having three campaigns, the demo shows that each campaign has a different tone. Chris is more action oriented with him actually going against non-infected enemies, Leon is toned downed and looks to be the horror part of the game, going through zombies, dark corridors. Jake’s campaign has this Nemesis-like gameplay which looks to have a different feel as well. It seems they divided the different types of gameplay seen in past Resident Evil games to satisfy old and few fans of the series.

What I don’t get is Xbox 360 demo coming out months before the PS3 version. We are not talking about a week early too, the Playstation 3 version is set to be released around September 4, that’s nearly a two month lead. It’s definitely a marketing strategy coming from Capcom, but a two month gap is a bit over the top.

Resident Evil 6 is coming out on October 2, 2012, for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 with a PC version to be released in the future.
