Get Ready For A Quick-Fix ‘Resident Evil 2’ Demo In January

As reported by those on-it sorts over at IGN, Capcom's forthcoming 'Resident Evil 2' remake seems likely to receive a special '1-Shot' demo, releasing before the full game in January 2019.

I've played a healthy chunk of the new 'Resident Evil 2', and I loved it. This demo - initially spotted on the Xbox Store by eagle-eyed peeps at True Achievements - will give everyone else the opportunity to spend some time with the remade Claire or Leon, as they explore what's left of the Raccoon City Police Department.


The description for the TA-spied listing reads as follows:

"This specially tuned demo allows you to experience the newly reimagined Resident Evil 2, but be warned: whilst you can continue as many times as you like after dying, you'll only have 30 MINUTES to complete the demo. Take in the horror atmosphere at your own pace, or make a desperate dash to solve all the puzzles Raccoon Police Department has to offer? The choice is yours!

"Originally released in 1998, Resident Evil 2, one of the most iconic games of all time, returns completely reimagined for next-gen consoles. Play individual campaigns for both Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield using an all new 3rd person view. Explore the zombie infested areas of Raccoon City, now stunningly re-built using Capcom's proprietary RE Engine. New puzzles, storylines and areas.

"Note: This demo is available until 1/31/2019. You must be signed in and have an active internet connection to play."

The demo is said to become available on 11 January - with the full game releasing for Xbox One, Windows and PlayStation 4 on 25 January. And like it says, players will only get 30 minutes per session, to crack the various challenges of the PCPD's HQ.

Watch out for the chunky lad in the hat, yeah?
