Resident Evil 2 Demo Players Have Already Found A Way To Remove Time Restriction (VIDEO)
Ever since it arrived, players have been diving into the 1-shot demo for Capcom’s upcoming remake of Resident Evil 2. There is still a couple weeks to go before the full game arrives, and while the demo does give everyone a chance to try it out, it isn’t for very long.
Instead of being limited to a certain part of the story or a single mission, those who take on the 1-shot demo only have 30 minutes to do so. After that, access will no longer be granted. This, of course, is simply unsatisfactory to some, which has prompted a few Steam users to figure out how they can squeeze more time out of the demo.
Before you go any further, let it be known that actually performing any of the following could result in some serious consequences, including having your Steam account banned. That said, the first step in resetting the 30-minute timer is by following the steps in deleting a specific file located on your PC, seen in the video below. Next, you will want to download the Steam Achievement Manager, which can be found right here. This will basically “uncheck” what you have already achieved and effectively begin you at a full 30 minutes once again.
For those looking to go the extra mile, however, there is a way to get rid of the timer altogether. This involves the use of Task Manager, which will not only reset the demo completely, but will also destroy the time restriction put in place by Capcom. Again, this could result in the banning of your account, so we recommend not trying any of it.
For those looking to give the Resident Evil 2 1-shot demo a try, it is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The full game will be released on January 25th.
