But, unlike most demos, "One-Shot" has an expiration date.
The "1-shot" demo will let you play the game for 30 minutes, but thats it.
You'll start off as Leon S. Kennedy in Racoon City's gothic police station, which is early on in the game but still, from what we played in our most recent preview, relatively hard.
Upon completion of the demo, regardless of playstyle or completion percent, players will be treated to a never before seen trailer of the game.
You've probably seen a bit of footage of Resi 2 by now, so chances are you'll be familiar with the locations of the demo. Usually, these are just the full game only on a timer - typically one hour. The demo will feature Resident Evil regular Leon Kennedy as a playable character.
Capcom is letting survival horror fans have a sneak peek of the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake before it officially debuts. You have to buy it to unlock it again with no further download required.
The Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo goes live on all platforms January 11.
"Leon must survive vicious zombies and solve puzzles to find safe passage out of the station".
If players complete the mission objective under 30 minutes, they can restart the demo and keep playing until they've used the entirety of the allotted time. But you get 30 minutes - period. Anyone who grabs the Deluxe edition will also get a slew of extra costumes including the entertaining Noir outfits for both Leon and Claire.
