Resident Evil 2 remake demo NOW LIVE, lasts only 30 minutes PS4/XBOX1/PC

Refreshed 11th Jan (Posted 8th Jan)Expires on 31/01/2019
Heads-up for this friday

Capcom will give survival horror fans a brief taste of the Resident Evil 2 remake later this week with a limited-time demo — very limited, in fact, at just 30 minutes.

Resident Evil 2’s “1-Shot Demo” will be available for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One from Jan. 11-31. Players will have just a half hour to complete the demo. If they do finish their specific mission objective, they can continue to replay the demo until the 30-minute mark is reached.

The demo will also include a new cinematic trailer that’s exclusive to the trial version of Resident Evil 2. While the demo itself is time-limited, the trailer included as part of that experience can be rewatched multiple times without limitations.

Resident Evil 2’s “1-Shot Demo” will feature Leon Kennedy as a playable character. The full game will also include Claire Redfield, Ada Wong, and other playable characters featured in the original game. Resident Evil 2 is coming to PS4, Windows PC, and Xbox One on Jan. 25.

New games suck, that's why, I'd rather have this remade.
If anyone remembers the original Resi 2 demo (demo disk days) it had a 30 minute countdown timer on it.

OK, tell you what, why don’t you find all the records that you like and delete them, brake them, smash them or whatever and let’s see how you going to cope waiting for new stuff to be as good as your favourite stuff! 😜

And don’t buy any covers of your favourite stuff at the same time cause that is just cheating and recycling, no matter how good the cover is!

The RE2 is the BEST Resident there ever was!
I will happily pre-order to encourage Capcom to rehash more of my favourite games:)
And this is hardly an updated version of a game, it’s new take and complete re-imagining of the game!:)

Can’t wait for that demo!:)

Not sure if I should be happy or sad because it's only 30 minutes long and after that it's gone.

Get what you are saying but we have had a lot of very good new ips in recent years... I have played the original and initially it was nostalgia driving me towards buying this but after seeing some gameplay I am very excited... new direction for resident evil... Preordered from Smyths for £35 few months back

There's a thread in misc about this already...
I'm already bricking it. Can't wait!

I think it's allowed a pass after 20 years, Nintendo made a career out of it!

my bad I don't make a habbit of checking in misc. Happy to delete if a mod thinks appropriate.
Just been watching gameplay footage as ive kind of held off through its development and announcement last year. Just had my first glance at Mr X who stalks them in the original. He looks more scary than before
Heat fam!
Back when devs actually valued the gamesthey made, it's not a remake, it's, resident evil 2 next gen. Shame they put a stupid hat on Mr X but I'll overlook that as its going to be proper survival horror once again. I played the series back in the 90s and glad nemisis is already being made again, hoping Veronica gets a makeover too.

Ain’t that what they do every year with call of duty....
This is already posted in misc as another user noted

A game demo isn’t really a ‘deal’ as such either. Although as I mentioned in the original thread I’m looking forward to it!

If there's one company that doesn't need any encouragement to rehash old games, it's Capcom!

Super Special Resident Evil 2 Championship Turbo Hyper Mr X Edition anyone?

Cheers for the heads-up, OP. One of my faves from back in the day.
Well, mankind has come to a point where we are no longer creative and think outside the box. This smartphone generation are empty headed snowflakes.So, like Hollywood, even game studios recycle games!

But what is wrong with that? How is that bothering you or anyone?

Have you played the old RE2? Great!

You don’t have to play this edition!:)

What about the young people that have not played
original though? I very much doubt you would mange to convince anyone young to play oldshool RE2 nowadays- the audiovisual presentation is ... lacking compared to modern games:)
Why not update it and give new generation chance to experience RE2?:)

And if it happens to be brilliant re-imagination of old game, why not play it again on modern day system with graphics to do it justice?:)

I really don’t understand why people are sweating over that??

You all have shares in Capcom or what?

Are you simply denying Capcom it’s legacy or actually claiming they are not releasing new games?

But is it actually recycling when pretty much everything about the game is new? It's not a remaster. It is a fully fledged remake from scratch. No single asset reused. Even the dialogue will no doubt be rewritten. The game isn't suddenly cheaper to make if it's a remake.

Game looks incredible, really excited for it. So much new stuff and voice acting etc. Got mine free with vega 56 deal, wish the 25th would get a move on

So becasue there's a game remake, that means the entirety of mankind is no longer creative?

I don't know about that. I mean, you're pretty good at creating fiction.

Yeah cos no new games are ever released any more right?

It's not as if both new and remakes can co-exist is it...

Agreed, would also like Konami to remaster the original Metal Gear Solid with todays graphics, leaving the gameplay the same as ther PS1 version.

No that was a great game which was a slight re make of MGS.

If I was being sarcastic I’d put an emoji next to it.

Too early for this

You can never be sure on the internet!

"Flawless" isn't how I'd describe TTS... It has plenty. re-dubbed voice for a start.

Well that’s why we have differences, my perception of Twin Snakes is flawless because it’s so closely based to MGS, which is one of the greatest games ever made.

It isn't though. It shoe-horns in the action focus the franchise took up after the second game into the "puzzle room" style setup of the first. The level layouts needed changing to accommodate the new mechanics really, it's an abomination.

Twin snakes is on nintendo GameCube, are you even on about the same game?

Yes. You can kill Revolver in 30 seconds in first person mode, The mechanics brought in from the second game, break the core game. It's the Ghostbusters 2016 of video game remakes.

Just like me.....oh I thought that said 30 seconds...
