Today Capcom announced that a demo for the Resident Evil 2 remake is finally coming.
The demo is actually rather peculiar, as it’s timed, as you can read below. Interestingly, completing the demo also reveals a new cinematic trailer, but you have to make it in time.
Of course, you probably shouldn’t worry if you’re not confident about completing the mission, because someone is bound to put the trailer on YouTube quickly enough.
“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.”
The Resident Evil 2 demo will release on Jan 11. for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A trailer has also been released and you can watch it below.
