Resident Evil 2 Remake is little over a month away from launch and fans are excited about it. While Capcom hasn’t announced it yet but, it seems that we will get to play Resident Evil 2 Remake Demo before its launch.
As noted by TrueAchievements, a listing for Resident Evil 2 Remake demo popped up on Xbox Live Store. According to the listing, the Resident Evil 2 remake demo is titled “1 Shot” and features 30 mins of gameplay.
Capcom is following the same pattern as it did for Resident Evil 7, which also saw a small demo released before its launch.
With this Resident Evil 2 Remake demo, players will be able to decide if the game is worth buying or not, which it definitely will be.
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. Take in the horror atmosphere at your own pace, or make a desperate dash to solve all the puzzles Raccoon Police Department has to offer? The choice is yours!
However, according to the description on the Xbox store, the Resident Evil 2 remake demo will only be available for a limited time. According to the description, the demo will expire on January 31, 2019.
Speaking of the game, Resident Evil 2 remake won’t be free of microtransaction. According to the game’s ESRB rating, Resident Evil 2 remake features in-game purchases.
But, it is unknown what kind of microtransaction model Resident Evil 2 remake will feature. Given that Resident Evil 2 remake is a single-player experience, Capcom will probably offer cosmetics and vanity items.
Also, this might not be the only Resident Evil remake in the works. According to producer Tsuyoshi Kanda, he would like to remake all Resident Evil games with fixed camera perspective. This means we could see Resident Evil and Resident Evil 3 being remade with a third-person perspective.
I think it would be interesting to provide over-the-shoulder versions of our other fixed-camera titles. But for the time being my priority is making Resident Evil 2 a success.
This falls in line with another report that Capcom is actively developing Resident Evil 3 Remake. If the report is to be believed then RE3 Remake will probably launch for next-gen consoles.
Resident Evil 7 launched with VR support, however, Resident Evil 2 remake won’t be getting VR Support.
According to Capcom, the over the shoulder perspective is the reason for no VR support which makes sense since Resident Evil 7 features a first-person perspective.
Also, Capcom has assured that the remake will maintain the “claustrophobic horror” of the original.
Resident Evil 2 Remake is a survival-horror game in development at Capcom. The game rolls out on January 25, 2019, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
