Horror fans around the world will get an intense sneak peak at Capcom’s highly anticipated Resident Evil 2 Remake before its launch with a special demo event starting this week for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Available to download from January 11th to January 31st, this will be the first opportunity for fans to experience the completely reimagined classic. Aptly named the ‘1-shot Demo’, players must take on the challenge of surviving the horrors of Raccoon City in 30 munutes. If players complete the mission in under that time, they can restart the mission until they use up their full time. If they die during their 30 minutes, they have an unlimited number of continues until the 30 minutes have been reached. The end of the demo reveals a brand new cinematic trailer exclusive to demo participants. You can’t restart the demo after the time is up, but you have unlimited views on the trailer.
The 1-Shot Demo has players step into the boots of rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy as he arrives at Racoon City Police Station in the worst first day on the job. Lean must survive vicious zombies and solve puzzles to escape 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.
