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

165
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!:)

I mean... Compare this to the original, it is COMPLETELY different. and the undoubted success of this will lead to better horror games and better Resident Evil games, So....
I assume that the 30 minute demo can be played multiple times ?? say if you want explore different parts etc ....

Have you seen the gameplay though? I can’t wait to play it


Excellent comment. Thanks Garry141.

2 problems with this post;
- This is basically a new game, not a remaster like RE1 was (which was still good)
- Fans of RE have spent years begging Capcom to remake RE2 so a bit harsh criticising the company that is giving the fans what they want(y)
I for one cannot wait for this to be released!
How do we all think the timer is going work?

Will it be 30 minutes per x-box live account? So log out of one account and into other and the time will reset?

Or 30 minutes per x box console

No just one 30 minute play-through, hence "1-shot"

I'm already bricking it. Can't wait!


same mate. you seen any footage yet? ammo is scarce. you have to use it wisely. sometimes zombies take more bullets and some don't so you have to be creative and knee cap them just to bring them down

Wasn't it 10 minutes? For the OPMUK Demo anyway.
Playing it at full blast I think the best I ever managed was getting to the first red gem after burning the painting.
I wonder how much of the game was actually on the disc.

odiedodie21 h, 21 m ago

Really? I recall it ending when Ada shoots at you in the comms room


Wasn't the the demo that came with RE: Directors Cut?
If I remember right it had a slightly different city layout to the final game lol.
30 minutes.....wow, you guys really do like something for free don't you? lol.

You're right, I'd rather pay for this demo
If it comes close to part 4 then I will be happy. Part 4 has easily been the best out of all the RE main games and spin offs.

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?



Would you not prefer a new well-designed RE game ? Snowflakes can then learn about the genre.

Care to elaborate?

Yes please!:)

At the same time, none of the RE games after RE4 got me really excited:)

So i welcome the arrival of a compete rework of my favourite game in the series!:)

I have 200+ games to finish. I am not bothered in the slightest that Capcom is not releasing ‘new game’;) I have got life:)

As far as I know Capcom and other developers have more than just one team. They could have 20 ideas for new games that will materialise sooner or later:)

Yeah you’re right. I assumed that’s what op was on about as it was the first

I still remember jumping out my skin, when the T-Rex smashes through the office window
Cant access as the website says it not the right URL location. Diverts back to the UK site where its not available??
I heard the demo was an XBOX ONE exclusive like the Devil May Cry one was so if this is on PS4 too then great
If you die is that ya go over lol

New games suck


You have received a new HUKD badge: 'Funniest and most generalising statement of 2019'.
Hell yeah, gonna play first on ps4 pro and then on pc
Is the part you play in this demo, in the full game itself? If so, I'm going to pass on this demo.

Yeah, but its nothing spoilery. You have around2 floors to explore and collect few items to finish demo
Cheers, skipped the PS1 era so it will be new to me
How are people slagging this off? It's been made from the ground up and the original came out 21 years ago. It's looks amazing. You don't have to buy it.

Same , managed to finish it first time in 24 minutes and really enjoyed it , never played the original as I don't like the stuck camera perspective

Not the biggest fan of Resident evil but I did play RES 4 & 5 and really enjoyed them , actually would put RES 4 in my top 10 games , thought this played identically to then 2 installments so very happy and can't wait for it's full release
I think the time limitation is a great idea, also a nod to the original. builds hype for the full product. It is a demo after all.

You seen the **** show with that new Mario game out on the Switch? Now that's a lazy, lazy recycle.

And 'tards still pay top £££.

I remember the demo for the original Resident Evil 2 also had a timer but only about 5 mins or so.

4 was good, not better!:)

Personal preference I guess.

RE2 was best of old school RE. RE4 was best of new style RE.
I am a fan of old style ones.

Never really liked RE5&6. Still need to play RE7.

None of that matters to me now! Remake of best RE is coming! 😜
So I can play it three times as I have Steam, PS4 and Xbox One

I came here to point that out! If I recall you can get quite far in in 30 minutes if you know what you are doing but the demo does indeed end if you get far enough.

I know, imagine watching a movie remake or listening to a song cover. Madness
I think this is a justifiable remake

Technology has moved on a lot. Hopefully they do it properly.
unless it is in VR it isnt going to come close to RE7
