Capcom has announced that the Resident Evil 2 ‘1-Shot Demo’ will be available starting January 11 to January 31 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC via Steam. The demo will give players a 30 minute limit to try the game before it releases later this month.
The demo should give players a good taste of what to expect from the remake of the beloved second entry in the legendary series. Check out the trailer for the Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo below:
Here’s an overview of what you can expect from the demo:
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.
Resident Evil 2 releases on January 25 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC via Steam.
