Resident Evil 6 does not ship until October, but Xbox 360 gamers who purchased May's Dragon's Dogma can try out the game today. As was detailed in January, a demo for the new action shooter is now available on Xbox Live for those who redeem a onetime-use code found inside copies of Dragon's Dogma. The demo will become available on the PlayStation Network on September 5.
The Resident Evil 6 demo includes three missions taken from the game's three distinct campaigns that focus on protagonists Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy, and Jake Muller. In the Chris Redfield mission, players will face off against the nasty J'avo humanoid creature with colleague Piers Nivans on rooftops in China.
During the Leon Kennedy mission, gamers will fight alongside Helena Harper while exploring the inside of the Ivy University campus, which is replete with zombies. Finally, the Jake Muller mission takes place in a war-torn Edonia and has players teaming up with Sherry Berkin to escape the clutches of the Ustanak, a new enemy type in Resident Evil 6.
Capcom did not say when or if it plans to make the Resident Evil 6 demo available to those who do not hold a copy of Dragon's Dogma, and a company representative told GameSpot, "No announcements have been made."
