Horror fans around the world will get an intense sneak peek at Capcom’s hotly anticipated Resident Evil 2 before its launch with a special demo event starting this week for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players via Steam.
Available to download for a limited time from January 11th to January 31st, the aptly titled“1-Shot Demo,” puts players in the shoes of police officer Leon S. Kennedy where they 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. Resident Evil 2 arrives on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25th.
