If you are one of the hearty adventures that picked up the excellent Dragon’s Dogma on Xbox 360, then you’ll be pleased to hear that you can now download a demo of Resident Evil 6 from XBL today. This is an exclusive offer so PS3 owners will have to wait a bit longer (no news on a demo has been announced as yet)

Play as Leon S. Kennedy alongside Helena Harper and explore the dark confines of the Ivy University campus and the zombies that fill its hallways. Select Chris Redfield’s mission and head to China for an intense encounter against the deadly J’avo with BSAA colleague Piers Nivans on the rooftops of Lanshiang. The third mission shifts the action to the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and sees Jake Muller and Sherry Berkin trying to escape the relentless pursuit of the Ustanak, one of the new B.O.W.’s being introduced in Resident Evil 6.

Resident Evil will release globally on October 2nd on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, a PC version will follow shortly after.
