The release of the hotly anticipated Resident Evil 2 remake is right around the corner, with just a few weeks left to go before you can experience the revamped horror classic for yourself. If you really can't wait, though, it looks like you might get a chance to sample the game a little early. The folks over at TrueAchievements have discovered something called a One-Shot Demo for Resi 2 on the Xbox Store, scheduled to launch on 11th January 2019.
The demo, which will only be available until the end of January, seems to give players access to the opening moments of the game, but with a strict time limit of half an hour. Here's the official description from the store page:
This specially tuned demo allows you to experience the newly reimagined Resident Evil 2, but be warned: whilst you can continue as many times as you like after dying, you'll only have 30 MINUTES to complete the demo. Take in the horror atmosphere at your own pace, or make a desperate dash to solve all the puzzles Raccoon Police Department has to offer? The choice is yours!
Originally released in 1998, Resident Evil 2, one of the most iconic games of all time, returns completely reimagined for next-gen consoles.
- Play individual campaigns for both Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield using an all new 3rd person view
- Explore the zombie infested areas of Raccoon City, now stunningly re-built using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine.
- New puzzles, storylines and areas.
Even though this is sourced from the Xbox Store, the demo is a dead cert for release on PS4 too. At the time of writing, we can't see a listing for the demo on the PlayStation Store, but it'll appear closer to the time. Will you be checking out the Resident Evil 2 One-Shot Demo?
