Resident Evil 2 to receive a “1-shot” demo, gives players a one-time 30 minute trial

Enter the world of survival horror for half an hour as you play as Leon S. Kennedy during a 1-shot, 30 minute demo. Despite being called 1-shot, the player can take on the challenge as many times as they’d like if they die before the 30 minutes are up.

Aptly named the “1-Shot Demo,” players must take on the challenge of surviving the horrors of Raccoon City in just 30 minutes. If players complete the mission objective under 30 minutes, they can restart the mission until they use up their full time. If players succumb to the zombies during their 30 minutes, they can continue any number of times until the full 30 minutes have been reached.

Upon the conclusion of the demo the player will receive an exclusive trailer only for demo participants. Once completed, the demo cannot be played again, encouraging players to use their time wisely. The trailer, however, can be viewed as many times as the player would like.

In the “1-Shot demo,” players step into the boots of rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy as he arrives at Raccoon City Police Station in the ultimate worst first day on the job. Leon must survive vicious zombies and solve puzzles to find safe passage out of the station. With an entire building of flesh-eating nightmares lurking between Leon and his escape while the clock ticks down, players need to be sure they’re killing more than just time.

The 1-shot Resident Evil 2 demo will be released on January 11th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and will be available until January 31st. The full game will be released on January 25th, 2019.
