Capcom releasing a special Resident Evil 2 “1-Shot” demo soon

Ohh… now this is a nice treat for Resident Evil fans for sure. Beginning Friday, January 11th, 2019, Capcom is releasing a special Resident Evil 2 “1-Shot Demo” for PS4, Xbox One and PC players.

What’s special about this demo? Well players really get only 30 minutes to play it, from the moment they hit start until they either reach the end or they consume a full 30 minutes of play time. After that, gamers will only get to check out the new cinematic trailer included with the demo.

Sounds tense, just like we’d hope from a Resident Evil experience!  Make sure to pick up the demo as soon as its available because it will also only be made available until January 31st, 2019.

See the announcement below.

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.
