Survival Horror, In 30 Minutes Or Less.
We’re only two weeks away from the release of Resident Evil 2’s remake, and Capcom has released a demo for its upcoming reimagining of the classic survival horror sequel. However, there’s a bit of a catch: Once you start up the game, you’ll only have 30 in-game minutes to play. Once those minutes are up, your time with the RE2 demo will end.
Releasing on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the One-Shot demo is a great way for players to get accustomed to the tense survival horror experience that RE2 offers. Playing as Leon S. Kennedy during the worst first day ever, you’ll explore the overrun RPD Station to learn just what happened to Raccoon City and its residents. While there’s plenty of zombies and puzzles to find in this small slice of the game, the greatest enemy you’ll face in this demo is time itself. With this in mind, we’ve come up with some tips and details to help you make those 30 minutes count.
After completing the demo for the first time, you’ll be treated to a new trailer detailing what’s to come in the final game. In addition to Leon’s story, the other protagonist Claire Redfield will have her own narrative to dive into. In the trailer, we get to see the ever-mysterious Ada Wong face off against Annette Birkin and other threats in Raccoon City. Furthermore, we also get a peak at the post-game missions featuring fan-favorite Hunk, and the the ridiculous and too bizarre to hate Tofu–a sentient and walking hunk of coagulated soy armed with a knife.
The demo will be able from today till January 31. We’ve put together a handy explainer about the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake, detailing all its changes and what to expect in the full game. With the release of the game fast approaching, be sure to check back with GameSpot for more updates on Resident Evil 2, along with our final review.
