Resident Evil 2 Remake Demo Shambles Onto Consoles

Console players curious about the Resident Evil 2 remake are getting giblet-covered stocking stuffer this holiday season.

[Update: 12/12] As of this afternoon, Capcom made the Resident Evil 2 demo available on the PlayStation Store and the Microsoft Store. As was first suggested, this is the same demo from earlier in the year, just without the time limit. 

Original story: 

The Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake is set for release on April 3, 2020. Finally revealed during the latest PlayStation State of Play, the remake will come alive on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. 

However, if you're still on the fence about this year's Resident Evil 2 remake, it looks like Capcom has something that might help consoles players make a more informed decision. A new RE2 remake demo may be headed to consoles in the coming days or weeks. 

The folks at True Achievements seem to have found a new demo for the game on the Xbox Store. Though the demo may be a repackaging of the 1-Shot Demo from earlier this year, it's great news for console fans nonetheless. 

The 1-Shot gives a pretty meaty taste of what to expect in the main game, letting players experience a short segment of the game that takes place in the Racoon City Police Department. 

Good thing is that the time limit found in the PC version of the demo as reportedly been removed, which presumably means fans will be able to come back and play it as many times as they want.

Much as we're all looking forward to the Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake, the RE2 remake is still a stellar experience, and a true return to form for the series. Since its January release, the survival horror game has sold more than 5 million units. And it's even up for Game of the Year at the 2019 Game Awards
