Unique Resident Evil 2 Demo Releasing Later This Month

Resident Evil 2 might be coming out later this month, but fans will be able to play the game earlier thanks to a new demo that’s coming out.

Capcom will be releasing a new limited time demo for Resident Evil 2 called the “1-Shot Demo”. It is available only for a limited time and allows players to play the game for a full 30 minutes. At the end of the demo, you will also be greeted with a new trailer from the game.

Capcom announced the new demo via a press release. You can read about the full details posted down below.

Press Release

Horror fans around the world will get an intense sneak peek at Capcom’s hotly anticipated title Resident Evil 2 before its launch with a special demo event starting this week for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players via Steam. Available to download for a limited time from Jan. 11 to Jan. 31, this will be the first opportunity for fans to experience the completely reimagined horror classic from home.

Aptly named the “1-Shot Demo,” players must take on the challenge of surviving the horrors of Raccoon City in just 30 minutes. If players complete the mission objective under 30 minutes, they can restart the mission until they use up their full time. If players succumb to the zombies during their 30 minutes, they can continue any number of times until the full 30 minutes have been reached.

The end of the demo reveals a brand new cinematic trailer exclusive to demo participants. While players cannot restart the playable demo after their time is up, there are no limitations on how many times the trailer can be viewed.

In the “1-Shot demo,” players step into the boots of rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy as he arrives at Raccoon City Police Station in the ultimate worst first day on the job. Leon must survive vicious zombies and solve puzzles to find safe passage out of the station. With an entire building of flesh-eating nightmares lurking between Leon and his escape while the clock ticks down, players need to be sure they’re killing more than just time.

The Resident Evil 2 remake will be out on January 25th, 2019. You can play the game for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
