Resident Evil 2 ‘1-Shot’ Demo (PS4, Xbox One)

The hotly-anticipated Resident Evil 2 remake is set to launch on Jan. 25. Fortunately for those who can’t wait that long, Capcom has provided a “1-Shot” demo, which is now available on both the PlayStation Store and Xbox Marketplace. The reason that the demo is called “1-Shot,” however, is that players only get 30 minutes of gameplay time. Once the timer runs out, the demo will end, and it cannot be replayed. Make the most of your time with this one! (Note: There may be a way around this 30-minute limit!)
