As the trailer reveals, the original setting of Raccoon City will also once again be the backdrop to Capcom's reimagining of a 20 year old story, which follows the huge success of Resident Evil 2 Remake earlier this year. 

We'll also be getting Resident Evil: Resistance, the asymmetric multiplayer spin-off formerly known as Project Resistance, as a free addition to anyone who purchases Resident Evil 3 Remake, which is a nice bonus.

Rumors of the Resident Evil 3 Remake have been doing the rounds for some weeks, culminating with the leak of the game's official artwork directly from the PlayStation Store itself. 

Many were expecting a full reveal for the title at this week's Game Awards ceremony, but PlayStation announced its State of Play live stream over the weekend, which brought the news to our eyeballs even earlier than expected.
