Resident Evil 6 early access begins today, so for Dragon's Dogma 360 owners, it's time to redeem that demo voucher.
The RE6 demo is now available for download on LIVE, assuming you happen to have the special code that came with a new copy of Dragon's Dogma on 360. For those who don't, the same demo will be available months from now, on October 2. That's if you own a PS3 or Xbox 360; PC gamers will have to wait even longer just to try the new Resident Evil.
The demo encompasses all three subplots. The first features Leon and his new partner, Helena Harper, as the two shoot and kick their way out of a university campus that's been overrun with zombies. The second drops in on Chris Redfield's mission in China, where he teams up with Piers Nivans in the city of Lanshiang to fight the deadly J'avo. Third heads to Europe and introduces us to the unreasonably young BSAA agent Sherry Berkin and her somber partner, Jake Muller, as they pursue the Ustanak B.O.W.
Capcom previously released a three-part gameplay showcase following Leon's trek through the college. At E3, we saw the game's new 4-player "Crossover" feature come into play, though it's unlikely the demo will include any of the double co-op segments. We'll let you know otherwise.
Note that even if you redeem the code on Xbox.com or through Xbox LIVE, you'll have to start Dragon's Dogma to snag the demo. The download can be found via Dogma's main menu.
