‘Resident Evil 2 Remake’ demo allows only one playthrough per console

The Resident Evil 2 Remake demo requires players to use their wits and conservation skills to make it through the zombie ridden Raccoon City in record time.

Capcom announced the first public Resident Evil 2 Remake demo as having a time limit of only 30 minutes. The demo doesn’t end if players die, but the Capcom states that just like in real-time, those 30 minutes cannot be repeated.

This sort of stressful demo might be a great way to introduce players to the wonderfully horrific series that is Resident Evil. The Resident Evil 2 Remake demo will feature Leon in his struggle to survive against the undead with limited resources, a racing pulse, and no way out.

Upon completion of the demo, regardless of playstyle or completion percent, players will be treated to a never before seen trailer of the game. From all that we’ve already seen of the Resident Evil 2 Remake, we can only imagine what the new footage will contain.

Capcom is pushing a deluxe preorder of the title, but has seemingly decided to keep the ludicrous Japanese exclusive ultimate bundle from being sold outside of the archipelago. Instead, the preorder bundle being advertised is one that comes with “a DLC Pack with bonus costumes for Leon and Claire, an additional ‘Samurai Edge – Albert Model’ handgun, and a retro soundtrack swap that switches the music out for tracks from the original game.”

The Resident Evil 2 Remake Demo releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam on January 11, 2019, giving players just a few days of advance to sharpen up on their zombie headshots and item configurations. The full release of Resident Evil 2 Remake releases on January 25, 2019. The original title that the Resident Evil 2 Remake is based on released in 1998 for the PlayStation, was met with critical praise, and still holds a cult classic following all of these years later.
