Capcom has recently faced a lot of troubles owing to its most popular game, the Resident Evil with reports surfacing that RE6 was being sold in a store inPoland. Now, the gaming company has done a sweet move of launching the demo version of its latest game across various gaming platforms. This move is a timely effort as the company is at the risk of losing some major moolah over the leak.
The news of the leak was reported by a website, which also posted the packages related to Capcom with the company being kept in the dark about this pre-date release. All the more, the effects of the leak were compounded when a buyer posted the game for sale on eBay and pirated copies of the game were available online. Now it is next to impossible for any agency to fight the threat of piracy and though localized approach can be made, a global initiative is still tough to imagine. The company’s decision to partake in a trial version really makes good sense for gamers to put their complete trust in the product. The game has seen its share of ups and downs but still has managed to remain afloat. Its last outing RE 5 was afflicted with a series of errors that resulted in its disappointing outcome. Now, its predecessors had maintained a sense of innovation and heightened vibrancy over the years.
Now, the sudden fall with RE 5 can be easily negated by the audience if the gamers are able to try out the latest version of the game on their consoles including Xbox 360 and PS3. The demo version would be launched on September 18, 2012 and is expected to feature all the three protagonists along with their partners in the three storylines, which form part of the full version. Gamers can download it from Xbox LIVE or the PlayStation store. As per the Capcom press release, the content of the demo ‘features completely different content’ as compared to the previous demo released alongside Xbox 360 version of Dragon’s Dogma.
The games can either be played solo or along with an online partner. Players can don the mantle of Leon S Kennedy and his partner Helena Harper or go in as Jake and Sherry as well. They can also don the role of Chris Redfield or his partner Piers Nivans and fight the battle in the ‘war-ravaged streets of Edonia’. The Zombie battle promises to be a menacing one and Capcom plans to cash in on the game’s fan base.
Although, the release date for the full version of the game are still scheduled for October 2, the demo is expected to generate quite a buzz in the gaming world and with reviews out early on the game, Capcom is surely hoping to convert into profits after the early debacle faced by it.
