Resident Evil 2 gets a limited demo
Fans can only play up to 30 minutes of the remake
Capcom has announced plans to release a special demo for Resident Evil 2 on all platforms.
The demo will be available to download for a limited time from January 11th to 31st. 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 will offer a 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.
The demo lets players control rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy as he arrives at Raccoon City Police Station. Leon must survive vicious zombies and solve puzzles to find safe passage out of the station.
Resident Evil 2 will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on January 25, 2019.
