Resident Evil 2's Half-Hour Demo Played By Over 2 Million Gamers
To get fans hyped for the upcoming release Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom released a special half-hour long demo on January 11. The demo gives fans the opportunity to spend 30 minutes in the game's police station, doing what they can to avoid being being eaten by the undead that have taken over Raccoon City.
In just 10 days, the demo has been played by nearly 2.5 million players.
According the Resident Evil 2 Global Stats page, 2,402,376 players who have shared their data information with Capcom have logged into the demo as of this writing. Of that number, the most players are from North America with 556,746 players. It does look as though Capcom is counting the U.S. and Canada together.
We also know that among all those players, the demo has an average completion rate of 26% — which isn't as high as would be expected. In fact, it's about 7.8 minutes of the demo. The data doesn't share more detailed stats on completion.
Of course, some players may be worried about spoiling themselves for the full game, which is set to release on January 25.
