If like us you can’t wait to get your hands on the Resident Evil 2 remaster then we’ve got some great news. A special demo event is starting tomorrow (January 11th) for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players via Steam. The Resident Evil 2 demo will be available to download for a limited time until January 31st.
Aptly named the “1-Shot Demo,” players 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.

In the “1-Shot demo,” players step into the boots of rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy as he arrives at Raccoon City Police Station in the ultimate worst first day on the job. Leon must survive vicious zombies and solve puzzles to find safe passage out of the station. With an entire building of flesh-eating nightmares lurking between Leon and his escape while the clock ticks down, players need to be sure they’re killing more than just time.
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.

If you’re in London on January 25th-26th you can also get hands on with the game at the Resident Evil 2: Safe House Bar event.
In the full game, players join rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City that transformed its population into deadly zombies. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters’ perspectives.
The full Resident Evil 2 game will be available for PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC on January 25th, 2019. EF Games hopes to have a full review for you around launch.
