Capcom has announced a demo for the Resident Evil 2 remake – and it lasts for just 30 minutes.
The “1-shot” demo, which goes live on 11th January for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, is set on a 30-minute timer. This means you’ve got half an hour of playtime before the demo ends – and once your 30 minutes is up, that’s it. No starting again for another 30 minute shot to see if you can get further into the demo. It’s a one and done job.
The 30-minute 1-shot demo, which starts with rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy trying to escape from the R.P.D. station, is certainly a bold move from Capcom, and I imagine it will annoy plenty of people who are hungry to play more. But it’ll get tongues wagging, and it’ll be interesting to see videos of playthroughs to see how far players get with their one and only stab at the game.
