RESIDENT EVIL 2 1-Shot Demo Discovered on the Xbox Store

By Sam Quirke, 27 days ago
We have just picked up a store description on our scanners which reveals a 30-minute "one-shot" demo for Resident Evil 2 arriving at the beginning of the year. The demo won't end if you die but it will end as soon as the timer is up — so you can either soak up the atmosphere or attempt a speed run of the game's opening sections.

RESIDENT EVIL 2 1-Shot Demo

This specially tuned demo allows you to experience the newly reimagined Resident Evil 2, but be warned: whilst you can continue as many times as you like after dying, you'll only have 30 MINUTES to complete the demo. Take in the horror atmosphere at your own pace, or make a desperate dash to solve all the puzzles Raccoon Police Department has to offer? The choice is yours! Originally released in 1998, Resident Evil 2, one of the most iconic games of all time, returns completely reimagined for next-gen consoles. - Play individual campaigns for both Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield using an all new 3rd person view - Explore the zombie infested areas of Raccoon City, now stunningly re-built using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine. - New puzzles, storylines and areas Note: This demo is available until 1/31/2019. You must be signed in and have an active internet connection to play.


Resident Evil 2 arrives on January 25th 2019. The demo arrives on January 11th and will disappear from the store on January 31st.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Resident Evil 2 achievements.
