Brush up on your survival skills before the game’s release
The release of the Resident Evil 2 remake may be quickly approaching, but, for some, January 25 just isn’t close enough. Fortunately, those people who just can’t seem to wait to get in on the RE2 action (and everyone else, really) are in luck, because Capcom has announced that a special demo will be releasing soon.
Titled the “1-Shot Demo”, this preview will give players just 30 minutes to tackle the horrifying challenges awaiting them within Raccoon City. While Capcom has confirmed that players can continue as many times as they’d like throughout the demo (after all, everyone experiences a little zombie-related death here and there), there is a catch — this is literally a 1-shot demo. After the 30 minutes are up, players will be unable to restart the demo to play through it again. The cinematic trailer unlocked at the demo’s end can be replayed as many times as you’d like, however. So, hey, at least there’s that, right?
Resident Evil 2 will be releasing on January 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, while the 1-Shot Demo will be available to download from January 11 – 31. What are your thoughts on this demo’s unique approach? Will you be testing it out for yourself? Let us know in the comments below!
