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!:)

You could play it more than once though.

Just be glad it wasn't a p*** poor hd upgrade like they did with Shenmue.

I'm all for remakes of the originals if they build them from the ground up.

These lazy hd updates and charging £30 for is what's insulting.

Nintendo are good at the whole 'recycle last generation' games, but in this instance, they insist it's because no-one (not literally) had a Wii U so want the Switch demographic to play what they consider to be the best first party games from the Wii U.

In terms of this, it doesn't look anything like the same game. It almost seems quite like an inspired reimagining of what many people deem to be the best RE game.

I'll be trying this tonight!

Hardly a hd cash in though it's completely remade
1000 heat for a 30 minute game access. That's the nail in the coffin for me on this site. I'm done.
I clearly remember playing Resi 2 the first time around on the PS1 and absolutely cr@pping myself at the bit where you fell through the floor, I think it was in the police station. Anyone else for any good (or rather bad) memories of jumping out of their seats from this game?

Came here to mention this! Although actually it was only 10 minutes - I played it over and over trying to see how far I could get in 10 minutes, because I was thinking there's no way the whole game could be on a demo disc (and if it was, could I just deactivate the timer?) so I wanted to get to a point where something was missing. I managed to get as far as the first Licker in the police station, and there was no video sequence introducing it like there was in the full game - it just dropped from the ceiling and killed me, which if anything was even scarier.
Loved the demo. I think it was plenty of time as a taster. I managed to have a speed run through it before the time finished.
Brill.giing to get this after work can't wait heat

Ha! Nailed it. Zworld is talking nonsense.

Think I'm going to try and avoid this and wait until it's out.. Don't want it ruined at all.

Resident Evil 4 is my favourite game of all time.. Resident Evil 2 PS1 was before that so this is about as excited I've ever been for a game!
My favourite resi game, and although I'm not a major fan of remakes, if this can bring back those memories with a much better and fluid control system, I'm in

You're right.

I am glad i'm not the only one who notices the poor quality of games these days. I mean what the hell is wrong with Steam? I remember when releases on there would be worth a look at least. Now? It's filled with crap 'dating simulators' and anime garbage.

Glad I got to experience the golden age of PC gaming, from Doom, all the way up to Battlefield 2142. Was good times.

I love the original res evil 2 and one of the things that made it for me was the camera angles,where you'd get a nice wide shot of what you are doing,but as nice as the graphics look on this new one,the camera angles are not the same.

Anyone else prefer the way it was on the original ?
Where is the download for PC please?

Thats the power of RE2!!
The game is a definite Preorder! But im not sure if i should bother playing this demo, especially if getting the main game anyway!!! I mean it might just spoil the main game
Is this a straight up cleaned up version of RE2 or did they ruin it like with RE1
RE3 had the 180° turn though. Going back to the tank controls on RE2 was painful after this improvement.

That’s not true, there’s plenty examples out of there of great games still being released, the last of us 2 will be a great game for example
8gb download would take at least two hours for me to download.
If I could replay this multiple times, it would be worth it.

As it stands, it just isn't worth it. Sorry. Cold vote from me.

hi all where do you get the PC version from? Do we have a link
Does it still have the dodgy camera angles tho? Those were scarier than the game!

Do u have to have plus to download and play this?
Played this last night as soon as it went live on Xbox One, looks and plays awesome! Can also confirm its the full uncensored version (as some folks were worried we might be getting a censored version because Japan is). Can't wait for the full game!
Nice!
I wanted to get this game but then I saw the disgusting uncanny valley faces on the trailers so I didn't get it.

Now I can try the game and see if I puke when I see Claire's (and NPC's) possessed doll face on real time or not.
Thanks have heat!! Just saved £0 off £0 demo!! Great start to my weekend!
Pc demo is live (7.2GB) - Link
