Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo

Steam now offers the promised "1-shot" demo for the Resident Evil 2 Remake. The one shot part refers to how this is designed to allow just 30 minutes to complete. Word is: "This specially tuned demo allows you to experience the newly reimagined Resident Evil 2, but be warned: whilst you can continue as many times as you like after dying, you'll only have 30 MINUTES to complete the demo." Those hoping to circumvent this time limitation may be interested in a post on DSOGaming with word on how to do so with a crack that can also provide infinite ammo. This involves a third-party download, so it's definitely a proceed with caution at your own risk situation, though DSoG says they've scanned the file and vouch for its safety. This post on Steam has tips on graphics settings and notes the demo supports ultra-wide aspect ratios. Here's more from the original post about this demo for the reimagined Resident Evil 2:
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.
