Survival expert Leon S. Kennedy beats a desperate escape through a North American city. Its streets are ablaze with burning vehicles and buildings, while the groans of the undead and screams of the not-yet-dead fill the air. Meanwhile, in China, zombie nemesis Chris Redfield discovers a terrifying new enemy: the J’avo, able to co-ordinate and adapt attacks. And in eastern Europe, wanted man Jake Muller evades capture during a devastating bioterrorist attack.
Yet while the menace is global, its threat is never more than a few feet away. Clever effects bring this home – a blurred figure glimpsed through a window here, creeping silhouettes on a tunnel wall there – and a chilling soundtrack broods amid the noise of cities crumbling.
A fourth chapter, the story of femme fatale Ada Wong, is unlocked once the previous three are completed, and promises to answer the nagging questions raised along your frantic journey. The popular survival mode, Mercenaries, also returns and once you’ve fine-tuned your zombie-slaying skills, sign up to residentevil.net to take part in exclusive in-game competitions.
