Resident Evil 3 hits the PS4 today, and brings a few friends with it – the adventurous Nemesis will chase Jill through the city streets and the epic 4v1 horror game, Residence Evil Resistance. In this new experience, the four Survivors have to sort out the evil Mastermind that is determined to block their escape throughout a series of terrible trials. Resident Evil Resistance is included alongside Resident Evil 3, so you'll have two bad experiences to get into.
You may have already seen Tim's blog for excellent Resident Evil Resistance for Survival and Masterminds alike, so today we've put together a little guide on how to spend your time in Rurbon City of Reveron.
Bright lights, Great city
Jill will spend some time on the streets of the city she once called home, and by your luck, the raccoon City map is easily found to clear your way. Make good use of it, as your map can tell you if you've lost items in the area, and follow through with locked doors.
Followers with a keen eye for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis may see familiar stores like Eagle & # 39; s Pet Shop, while newer venues, such as Moon Donuts, are a great place to stop and take a moment to relax. Keep your eyes and ears open. Re-entry doors or distant murmurs mean that there may be enemies approaching – even though zombies may not be the least of your problems as you enter the streets and buildings of Rocaon City.
Stop me if you've heard this before: One green tree mixed with one red tree is the perfect way of life. Resident Evil 3 continues this long tradition, making it an easy way to get your life back on track. Red herbs are not common, but they do not have any useful properties by themselves. Make sure you have some green herbs that you can mix with to create powerful healing properties!
Speaking of mixes, the ammo mix from the first Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (also introduced in last year's Resident Evil 2 returns. There are different types of guns, and different mixes produce different types of ammunition. -playstyle, and what you will need for future tests – but make sure you plan ahead! One shotgun does nothing for you.
Tall, Black, and Deadly
If you've already played Resident Evil 3 Raccoon City Demo – and if you haven't already, go and download it after reading this! – you already know that Nemesis is a great force to be reckoned with. It won't go down without a fight, but you can stomp Nemesis down … for a while. What you do after this is your call, but sticking there won't help. If you want to stand up, bring your strongest weapons, and make sure you practice your right dots (R1 when the attack is about to hit) to clear the path and position the opponent by holding the L2 steering and slowing things down for a while after a complete dodge.
This is easy – remember to save your game every month, especially if you're doing something cool, storing a huge amount of ammo, or accidentally escaping a hungry group. You never know what's lying in the next corner, so locking your progress is always a good idea. Storage is free, often safe!
Before wrapping things up, how about a few additional tips for the No Resident Evil? You want to make the most of your first few games, so here are a few recommendations for new rescuers and Masterminds:
Have You Heard That?
Tim mentioned this already in his text the other day, but voice communication can make a big difference to Survivors. It doesn't matter if you can meet a trusted group of friends, or make some new friends as you play, respect and support your friends while talking about sports will help you make it to the end.
There is an irreversible side to voice chat, however; Masterminds genius can choose to use their own mic to tease Survivors and listen to their conversations, adding a layer of thought to the process. The sharp Mastermind can listen in, and play mind games in response to the impartiality of its experimental subjects. Sometimes silence is the most frightening sound.
Know Your Limits
Both Survivors and Masterminds have existing skills, so don't be afraid to take the time to read the ins and outs of each as you play a few games. For survival, that means finding the best time to use your powerful Fever skills. Tyrone's Tally can reduce damage when Tyrant appears, for example, while Bulca & # 39; s Bullet Storm is great for removing enemy rooms with the right weapon.
Masterminds, on the other hand, have to look at how much power and how many creatures they put. It can be tempting to fill a room full of enemies, but a well-placed bomb can ruin all that effort with flash (and bang). Keep some energy in their hands, and plan ahead – try to dress down Survivors and drop down the clock instead of going for a full-scale attack.
All that we have, now stand bravely on the streets of Raccoon City in Resident Evil 3, available now. And don't forget – Resident Evil 3 includes a 4v1 survival horror game Resident Evil Resistance, so find a few friends online and try to escape as saviors, or take on the role of Mastermind to end their quest. See you behind the Mastermind cameras!
