Resident Evil 2 ‘1-Shot’ demo now available


It is now possible to get a free taster of the Resident Evil 2 remake, in the form of a time-limited ‘1-Shot’ demo.

The demo is available to download for free from the PlayStation and Xbox Stores plus Steam, and has been designed to restrict itself to one 30-minute play-through. But already, there are reports of gamers “cracking” it to allow multiple play-throughs – this Steam community post details how to reset its timer. And console gamers can generate further play-throughs by creating new console accounts.

The demo begins at the moment when Leon S Kennedy first enters the Raccoon City Police Department in the game. The highly anticipated, state-of-the-art remaster of what many people cite as the finest instalment of Resident Evil is due to be released on 25 January 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
