RESIDENT EVIL 2 1-Shot Demo Now Available

By Sam Quirke, 5 days ago
The Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo which we originally discovered back in December is now available to download. It'll set you back a fair chunk of GB, and you only have thirty minutes to get as far as you can. Once your time is up, the demo is over.

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. Note: this demo is available until 1/31/2019.


Early reports in a Reddit thread suggest that you can't simply speed-run into later sections of the game; past a certain point the game will end even if you have taken less than thirty minutes, and a screen will congratulate you and let you know your time played. It's been confirmed that you can die in the demo and still continue — the only limitation is that 30 minute clock.

The demo is 7.02 GB on the Xbox One, and you can download it using the links above. Act fast — the demo disappears after January 31st.

While the achievements haven't yet been revealed on Xbox servers, those who really want to know can check out the leak from earlier in the week. As soon as the official list appears you will find it on our Resident Evil 2 Achievements page.
