- The latest game in the Resident Evil franchise is “Resident Evil 2,” a remake of the 1998 classic arriving on January 25th, 2019.
- “Resident Evil 2” is rebuilt from the ground up, blending the horror elements of the original with the action-oriented gameplay of newer “Resident Evil” games.
- “Resident Evil 2” takes gore to another level, using an updated graphics engine to show the damage done to zombies in real-time.
Picking up Capcom’s remake of “Resident Evil 2” for the first time, I thought I knew what to expect. I’ve beaten the 1998 original, and I still remember the parts that scared me out of my seat. But less than 10 minutes into the new demo, I felt myself gripping the controller in fear all over again.
A special 30-minute demo of “Resident Evil 2” is available now in the PlayStation Network store and on Xbox Live. Capcom is calling it the “1-shot” demo because you’ll only have 30 minutes total to try the game, whether you survive to the end or get caught by zombies. The demo arrives two weeks before the full game, which is due out on January 25th.
