With the full release of Resident Evil 2 just a month away, it seems Capcom doesn’t want anyone to miss out on their updated classic, as a 30-minute “one-shot” demo for the game will become available beginning January 11, 2019. The source reveals that the game will be removed from the Xbox Store on January 31. The demo has a timer and thankfully will not end when you die.
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!
