Capcom drops '1-Shot' demo for Resident Evil 2 remake

Capcom drops '1-Shot' demo for Resident Evil 2 remake

While there is a demo of the Resident Evil 2 remake, it doesn't last very long, clocking in at 30 minutes. Thus, we have the burgeoning, likely short-lived, idea of speedrunning the thing.

The Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo which we originally discovered back in December is now available to download.

The Resident Evil 2 demo download size is 7.91GB according to a listing on the Australian PS Store. Those interested in getting a feel for the game ahead of the January 25 launch date can try out the new 1-Shot demo for PS4, Xbox One and PC. It's been confirmed that you can die in the demo and still continue - the only limitation is that 30 minute clock. The demo itself will always last just 30 minutes, but you can cram a lot of gameplay into that time. The original is more than 20 years old, after all. Instead, it sports an over-the-shoulder view like Resident Evil 4, which many believe to be the best game in the franchise.

Early in the demo, you'll encounter a police officer who screams for your help. Currently, though, at the moment there is no real official way to replay the demo. Should you complete the demo before the allotted half hour elapses, you can restart to use up the remaining time. If you do finish it, you'll see a "brand-new cinematic trailer exclusive to demo participants". You can maximize this by creating multiple accounts on the PS4 and Xbox One, too.
