CapCom Unity announces
we should expect a "1-Shot" demo for Resident Evil
this Friday, January 11th. The one shot refers to how this permits just 30
minutes of gameplay with no turning back, so they warn to "use what time you
have wisely." This is coming to all platforms, so the PC edition will be
released on Steam
. They say this will offer a "unique slice from the full
game." Here's word:
Who are ‘ya? What are you doing here? If you’re
looking for info on the Resident Evil 2 “1-Shot” Demo, look no further! With the
demo out in just a few days on January 11th, we’ve got fresh new details on what
to expect from this unique slice from the full game.
Sorry ‘bout all that, thought you were one of them. You can never be too sure
with what’s left of the once bustling Raccoon City. With the living dead
shuffling about and even the supposedly safe Raccoon City Police Department, or
R.P.D., being overrun by terrifying monsters, nowhere feels safe anymore. As
rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy, you’ll be setting foot into a reimagined
R.P.D. station not only to seek shelter and figure out why none of your
co-workers are calling you back, but also to find a way out of the nightmare
that’s unfolding in front of you.
Leon’s welcoming party may have been cancelled, but your escape from the police
station has just begun. Similar to the demo that we’ve had at various events
since the game was first unveiled at E3 in 2018, you’ll be able to explore the
R.P.D. as you like… but you’ll be on a time limit. Once those thirty minutes are
up, so is your demo! Fortunately, you can continue if you die, or if you
complete the mission objective. However, just like in real life, you can’t turn
back the clock and you won’t be getting back the time you lost, so use what time
you have wisely.
Play quickly and carefully if you want to see the end of the demo, and be sure
to pick up any useful items you see laying around while conserving your ammo. It
may be tempting to try and defeat every zombie that stands, or crawls, in your
way, but sometimes it’s better to use a few bullets to make an escape route than
empty a clip on a monster that refuses to stay dead.
No matter how your demo ends, you’ll get to see a brand-new trailer exclusive to
the demo when it’s done, giving you another taste of what to expect from
Resident Evil 2 in just a few weeks.
