Can’t wait for Resident Evil 2 to hit shelves at the end of this month? Well you’re in luck! The official Resident Evil Twitter just announced that there will be a new demo released on January 11th, 2019!
The demo, which is being called the “1-Shot” demo, will only last for thirty minutes and will be released on PS4, Xbox One and Steam. How you choose to spend that thirty minutes is entirely up to you. Do you want to explore and take in the details? Rush and hope to see as much as possible? Stand in one place and do absolutely nothing? The choice is yours!
Playstation.com gave some advice to those hoping to get the most out of the short demo. “The R.P.D. is a big place, and it can be a little daunting to figure out where you’re going at first. There’s lots to explore in the full game, but to make the most out of the demo, stick to the first floor at the beginning and look for red lights, such as laptop screens, shutter controls, and exit signs to get around. If you’re really lost, press the Options button to check your objectives and take a closer look at your map. Once you meet a certain police Lieutenant, you’ll have what you need to further explore the building.”
No matter how you choose to play, the demo will end after 30 minutes. Despite your playstyle, all players will be awarded with a special cut scene after the demo ends which sheds further light on the events taking place in Resident Evil 2.
