You’ll step back into the boots of Jill Valentine as she navigates the ruins of Raccoon City following the zombie outbreak that began in the phenomenal Resident Evil 2 remake. This time, though, you’ll be stalked by the terrifying Nemesis, who almost makes Mr X look like a pushover. Almost.

So with three editions of Resident Evil 3 available for you to choose from, we’ve put together a handy guide to help you figure out exactly what you’ll get with each edition of the horror classic remake.

Resident Evil 3 Standard Edition

Just looking to blast some zombies at the lowest price? The standard edition’s your best bet.

You’ll get the full game, which includes the 4v1 multiplayer mode Resident Evil Resistance, formerly known as Project Resistance. You’ll be playing as either one of four human lab rats trapped in an Umbrella testing facility, or as the Mastermind testing their survival skills with traps, door locks, zombies, and even the formidable Mr X.

The next step up contains the base game (which includes the multiplayer mode Resident Evil Resistance), and you’ll get to show off whose side you’re really on with some tidy bonus extras that are exclusive to GAME in the UK. You’ll get a limited edition Umbrella Corp spinner keychain, a 3D S.T.A.R.S. police badge, and a set of three Umbrella pin badges too.

UK retail-exclusive Collector’s Edition

At the very top of the list is the Collector’s Edition, which comes with a wealth of treasures inside a very familiar-looking item box.

Open it up and you’ll find the base game (including Resident Evil Resistance) which comes all packaged up in a fancy lenticular case. There’s also a double-sided poster of Raccoon City, with one side showing the city as it looked pre-outbreak, and the other side showing the same map mid-outbreak, with additions made by desperate survivors.

Up the immersion even more with a 2 disc double album soundtrack, which contains tracks from both Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil Resistance, or if that’s still not enough, dive into the Project: N and Project: R artbook, which is a dossier of documents, photos, and reports collated by Umbrella Corp during their various experiments.

Oh, and there’s one more treasure to unpack: an 11 inch detailed statue of iconic heroine Jill Valentine.

The Collector’s Edition is extremely popular, so if you can’t find one online, check at your nearest GAME store for availability near you.
