Resident Evil 2 Remake Gets a "One-Shot" Demo

Like real life, you only have 30 minutes to avoid getting eaten alive by zombies.

Most games don’t really launch with demos anymore, which is a shame, because they should be easier to make and distribute now than they ever were in their long history. That said, even if they do come with a demo, it’s not often the developer tries to do anything unique with them. With the exception of maybe PT and Deltarune, all you can expect from most demos is about fifteen minutes of straight gameplay that ends on a slight cliffhanger.

Well, the Resident Evil 2 demo might not revolutionize the world of demos with its size, but it’s certainly got a clever enough premise: you have 30 minutes to help Leon Kennedy complete a mission in the zombie-infested Raccoon City. Fail, and you’re not getting another chance.

Capcom is calling it a “1-shot” demo, and it’s a pretty cool idea:



You can download the demo on Steam, Xbox One, and PS4 on January 11. If you manage to reach the end, you’ll get to watch a special Resident Evil 2 trailer, which can be re-watched as often as you’d like. Otherwise, I’m pretty sure you still get a trailer, but you definitely won’t be getting a second chance… unless you, like, mess with the backend or something.

It’s not PT, but it’s a cool idea, and having only one opportunity should racket up the tension enough for some real big scares. Good thinking!
