RESIDENT EVIL 2 1-Shot Demo May Be Headed to PlayStation 4

By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
We have just picked up a store description on our Xbox store scanners which reveals a 30-minute "one-shot" demo for arriving at the beginning of the year. The demo won't end if you die but it will end as soon as the timer is up — so you can either soak up the atmosphere or attempt a speed run of the game's opening sections. Given that Resident Evil 2 was first announced in PlayStation's E3 conference, it's likely that the same demo will turn up on the PlayStation Network too.

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.
Resident Evil 2 arrives on January 25th 2019. The demo arrives on the Xbox Store on January 11th and will disappear from the store on January 31st — we expect PlayStation to have a similar set up.
