And it will be available to play across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam). So then, what's a '1-Shot Demo'? For Resident Evil 2 it's 30 minutes as rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy as you explore and hopefully escape the R.P.D station. If you die, you can re-start but once those 30 minutes expire the demo is over - for good.
That is until the full release of the truly impressive looking Resident Evil 2 remake on January 25. It's a cool concept that plays into the survival horror nature of the series, where adding this time limit automatically cranks up the tension - leading no doubt to more than a few on-edge encounters.
The end of the demo will also give players a new cinematic trailer for Resident Evil 2 - which unlike the 30 minutes, can be viewed as many times as you want. The Resident Evil 2 '1-Shot Demo' will be available for everyone to check out until January 31.
