Back in January, before the release of the Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom released a demo for the game that was only half an hour long, giving players only a short amount of time to explore the Raccoon City Police Department building. Now, however, the Resident Evil 2 Remake demo is out again.
This time, the timer has been removed from the demo, allowing players to explore the entire building at their own leisure. However, you should still be careful; just because the timer’s gone doesn’t mean the zombies aren’t!
When the Resident Evil 2 remake demo was first unveiled, it helped to get a lot of players more familiar with the new Raccoon City Police Station, along with the new way that the game would be played. Veterans of the original game found themselves much more terrified as the zombies threw their aim off with their swaying and could gang up on them, and took more hits to go down.
While it’s been nearly a year since the game launched, however, that doesn’t mean there’s no new threats lurking in the shadows. While you never encounter said threat, you can get a reminder that you’ll be facing an old friend when the Resident Evil 3 remake comes out.
To do that, all you have to do is leave the police station through the front door. Turn to the right and go down the alley. In the distance, though thankfully nowhere near you, you’ll hear something big roar “STAAAAAAAAAARS!”
Veterans of Resident Evil will recognize this as the voice and only word in the vocabulary of the Nemesis T-Type BOW, which was intended to hunt down and kill the members of the RCPD’s elite STARS team that had survived the mansion incident in the original Resident Evil.
While the rest of the Resident Evil 2 Remake demo is utterly unchanged aside from the aforementioned Nemesis Easter egg, it’s still free, so if you want to experience that egg for yourself and get yourself hyped up (or terrified) for the Resident Evil 3 remake, you can download the demo now on all of its platforms.
