Resident Evil 2 Demo Arriving In January 2019
A possible Resident Evil 2 demo could be arriving by January 2019. This is all thanks to True Achievements who saw the listing in the Xbox Store for a ‘Resident Evil 2 1-shot Demo’. The release date on the description said that the demo will be arriving on January 11 and will run until the 31st.
Here’s the full description from the store:
“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.”
It is unclear if you will only have 30 minutes to play the demo or if the game will reset after 30 minutes when you die, or perhaps you will only have 30 minutes per day to play the demo. We will know more when an official announcement will be launched by Capcom.
Resident Evil 2 is slated to launch on January 25, 2019, available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
