Capcom today announced a new demo for the upcoming release of Resident Evil 2 that will be available on all of the game’s platforms starting later this week.
This demo, which is being called “1-Shot Demo”, will only allow players 30 minutes to experience Raccoon City. Essentially, there will be a 30-minute timer on this demo that will carry over across multiple playthroughs. If you finish the demo’s objective before the timer is up, you’ll then be able to view a new cinematic that hasn’t been shown to the public yet. If you still have time left on your clock after completing the demo, you can then jump back in and play more until your time runs out. If you don’t complete the demo before this 30-minutes, you’ll just be out of luck.
As for what portion of the game you’ll be playing in this demo, you’ll land in the shoes of Leon Kennedy as he wanders about the Raccoon City police station. Your goal will be to escape the station in order to see the demo through to its end.
The 1-Shot Demo will land on PS4, Xbox One, and PC starting this Friday, January 11 and will be available for download from then until January 31. As for Resident Evil 2 itself, the full game will arrive on all the same platforms later this month on January 25.
