Capcom is ready to go with Resident Evil 6, with the game finished up and preparing for shipping.  But that doesn't mean you have to wait to get into the zombie-killing action.

The company has announced that they have released a demo for the game, giving you the opportunity to play through sections featuring a number of heroes, including long-time favorite Leon Kennedy.  The demo clocks in at just under 1 GB, so it won't choke up your hard drive too much.

Oh, and on a side note, this is a completely different demo from the one that came packaged with Dragon's Dogma when it was released earlier this year, so you don't have to worry about playing through the "same old demo" again.  Nice to see Capcom provide something a little bit different, even if it's just as scary as what we've played before.

Be sure to check out Resident Evil 6 on October 2nd for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3!
