Resident Evil 3 Remake Digital Pre-Orders for PS4 Unlocks Static Theme

The bonus theme also includes the Resident Evil 3 Nemesis theme.

Resident Evil 3 was officially announced in December 2019 by Capcom, and we’ve already seen screenshots to get us more hyped for the upcoming horror. Fans of the Resident Evil games will no doubt be wanting to pre-order the game for when it launches this April. As it turns out PlayStation owners will get a little something extra for pre-ordering.

Thanks to the below video from RenkaWong, uploaded in December, they show off the Resident Evil 3 theme that becomes available to the user after pre-ordering the title.

The theme isn’t dynamic for those who are fans of dynamic themes, but it does come with thematic elements that make up for the lack of dynamic elements. There is a soundtrack present, which as commenters have pointed out seems to be a revamped Nemesis theme from Resident Evil 3. There are custom icons present through the theme which also play sound effects.

While I quite like the look of the theme, and the soundtrack is fantastic to have blasting out as you browse your PS4, I can’t help but feel some animated smoke or something could have helped bring some atmosphere to the theme itself. It also seems to only be exclusive to digital pre-orders as there is no mention of a theme on physical pre-order pages around the internet.

The theme isn’t the only bonus to come with the pre-order however, players will also gain access to a Classic Costume Pack available at a later date for all platforms. The game itself will also include Resident Evil Resistance, a new 1 v 4 online multiplayer mode that pits 4 players against 1 player controller sinister Mastermind.

Resident Evil 3 is slated to launch on April 3, 2020, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
