People are speedrunning the Resident Evil 2 Remake demo

The Resident Evil 2 demo in Japan is less sticky and icky

CAPCOM’s Resident Evil 2 Time-Limited Demo is Now Available

Capcom launched the "1-Shot" demo of its Resident Evil 2 remake for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows on Friday. Predictably, the PC version has already been modded to let you go beyond that time limit, but it turns out there's not much extra to discover even with those limits removed. Thus, we have the burgeoning, likely short-lived, idea of speedrunning the thing.

The Resident Evil 2 remake One Shot demo is live on January 11-13, 2019, but it only offers players a tantalizingly short-lived glimpse into the game.

The Resident Evil 2 demo download size is 7.91GB according to a listing on the Australian PS Store. Although there is no firm information on Xbox One and PC, the download size should also be similar.

We learn that over 1,000,000 players enjoyed the demo (to be precise, 1,055,790).

Do you need to be online play the Resident Evil 2 demo? The full game won't have this restriction however.

Early in the demo, you'll encounter a police officer who screams for your help.

You can keep playing until your 30 minutes are up, whether you die or complete the main objective in the meantime. You have unlimited tries and you can't repeat it when you're done. Currently, though, at the moment there is no real official way to replay the demo. Upon completing the demo, you will be given a new cinematic trailer to watch. Progress does not carry over to the full game, meaning you'll be starting from the very beginning. You'll be able to switch between the two.
