Best answer: No. Resident Evil 3 is a third-person shooter similar to the classic version of the game. You’ll be watching the action over Jill Valentine’s shoulder for most of the adventure.
How do we know it’s third-person only?
It’s understandable if you thought this game was going to have a first-person point of view. After all, during Sony’s December State of Play, the teaser for the remake had you looking through Jill Valentine’s eyes as she ran through a burning building and later had you view her bathroom sink from her perspective. This confused several people and had them wondering if the game would be in first-person rather than third-person.
It wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility either, since players had the option to play Resident Evil 7 in first-person and there are mods for the Resident Evil 2 remake that introduce this ability.
What’s the main story in RE3?
You play as Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) officer Jill Valentine, who must escape the zombie-filled Raccoon City. However, it’s not going to be easy considering that The Umbrella Corporation has sent a powerful super-soldier known as Nemesis out to kill you and your fellow officers. He’s fast, intelligent, has tentacles, and wields a large gun. As you play through the game, you’ll encounter this biological weapon time and time again. You’ll have to see if you and the others can escape the city safely despite Nemesis’ attempts to take you down.
