Resident Evil 2 Begins “1-Shot” Demo Event This Week (VIDEO)
The hordes of infected are nearly ready to unleash in Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake and there looks to be plenty of interest regarding the upcoming title. Not only has the game received a crisp visual overhaul and a modernized gameplay style, but events from the original have also seen a reimagining, suggesting surprises for fans both new and old when the game eventually hits launch.
It looks as though players will have their first taste of the remade experience soon as Capcom has now announced a playable demo set to go live later this week. Based on the trailer below, an intense time surely awaits all who dare to download, placing players in the midst of a particularly deadly situation. However, it’d probably be best to tread a little lighter than usual, as players will only get one shot to complete the demo intact.
Yep, in the timeless words of Eminem: “you only get one shot.” Players will have only one opportunity to complete the entirety of the “1-Shot Demo” in under 30 minutes’ time. Those who end up a creature’s victim will be locked out from playing ever again, but anyone ultimately successful in their survival will earn the chance to play another day. Regardless of either outcome, Capcom promises players will be treated to an exclusive new trailer upon reaching the end of the demo.
Anyone who finds themselves on the side of defeat will need not fret for very long, as Resident Evil 2 is set to release later on this month. The full game will arrive alongside varying special editions, including a number of nifty DLC costumes as well as a few collectible figures. Those in Japan will even have access to an actual vintage typewriter, because why the heck not?
Resident Evil 2 releases for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 25th.
