Capcom's Resident Evil 6 arrives on store shelves on October 2, but gamers won't need to wait that long to play the new zombie shooter. The publisher has announced that the demo previously available only to owners of Dragon's Dogma will arrive on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network on September 18. No mention was made concerning a release for PC.

If the public demo for Resident Evil 6 mirrors the private one, it will include missions taken from the game's four distinct campaigns that focus on protagonists Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy, Jake Muller, and Ada Wong. In the Chris Redfield mission, players will face off against the nasty J'avo humanoid creatures 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.
