Capcom released a Resident Evil 6 demo earlier this month, but it was an Xb0x exclusive and you had to purchase a copy of Dragon's Dogma to play it. Thankfully, PlayStation 3 users who own Dragon's Dogma will be able to try a separate demo on September 4 in North America and September 5 in Europe.

For those of you who don't own a PlayStation 3 or want an early look at the game, we videos with new gameplay footage that is said to be from the upcoming demo:

"Experience bioterrorism on a global scale and get a taste for the scope of this latest and most expansive title in the Resident Evil series to date as the action moves from North America to Europe and China. This demo features three different missions and distinct gameplay experiences as each mission is taken from one of the full game’s three separate campaigns which features a different protagonist as the lead.

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 6 will be available globally on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from October 2nd 2012 with a PC version to follow."
