Resident Evil 2 Demo is Arriving later this Week

Resident Evil 2

Resident Evil 2 will very shortly be getting a “1-Shot” demo later this week. This demo will be PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Everyone is happy!

This demo will give players one chance and 30 minutes to try out the remake of the 1998 horror game. That is right, one chance. I think Eminem said it best when he said ‘You only got one chance to see how far you can get in the remake of Resident Evil 2’.

You will get your one chance on January 11th all the way to 31st of January to try out the game on your platform of choice. Plenty of time to have a good go at the game and see how far you can get.

The demo allows you to play 30 minutes controlling everyones favourite rookie cop Leon Kennedy as he tries to deal with the horrors that taken over Raccoon City. If you die you will get to play on, however, when you hit 30 minutes that is all you get. That’s it! After that you will have to wait to play some more when the game gets released. Luckily you won’t have to wait too long as the release date is 25 January 2019.

Praised for its complexity, puzzles and – of course – its claustrophobic horror elements, the 1998 PlayStation classic remains one of the most beloved titles of the console. But how will it fare on current-gen consoles?

From what we’ve been shown so far, Capcom has put its heart and soul into the remake, taking the best combat elements and style of Resident Evil 7, and showcasing it in the all-too familiar world of Resi 2.


Despite getting the amped-up 2019 treatment, the game will take up a mere 21GB of storage (at least on Xbox One), which is pretty tame considering some of the releases we’ve seen recently.

Will you be trying out the new demo for Resident Evil 2 or will you be waiting for the full game to be released?
