The HD remake of Resident Evil 2 has been a long-awaited title for a wide variety of reasons, the foremost being that the HD remake of the first Resident Evil came out in 2002, 17 years ago. It feels almost like an eternity since we’ve hoped and dreamt of the sequel hitting our consoles (let’s not even talk about how long it will be before Resident Evil 3) but that wait is nearly over with the upcoming January 25 release date. For those who aren’t certain if they’re ready to roam the halls of Raccoon City’s Police Department once again, a demo will be hitting PlayStation 4 this Friday…but it comes with an interesting clause: you only have 30 minutes before the demo ends.
Dubbed the “1-Shot Demo”, it will be available beginning this Friday and will only last through January 31. A trailer for the demo can be seen above.
“The action centers around rookie cop Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield as they fight to survive a mysterious viral outbreak within Raccoon City.“
Pre-orders are available through ResidentEvil2.com.
