Be careful — full Resident Evil 3 playthroughs are appearing online

Full Resident Evil 3 playthroughs are making their way online, well ahead of the game’s release date.

Capcom appears to be on the matter, aggressively issuing takedown notices against the content in question, but those who wish to go into a game without spoilers should definitely take note.

Resident Evil 3 and its Resident Evil: Resistance multiplayer mode head to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 3 April.
