Resident Evil 2 demo likely coming in January

A special Resident Evil 2 demo seems likely for a release in mid-January, a new report declares.

TrueAchievements has spotted a listing for for the Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo, scheduled for release on 11 January 2019 and available until 31 January 2019.

While the demo’s title would suggest the game can only be played once, the listing’s description says otherwise.

“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,” it reads.

“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.”

Capcom has yet to confirm the existence of the demo.

Resident Evil 2 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 25 January 2019.
