Beating Resident Evil 2's Demo Lets You Watch This Special Trailer

Chew on this.


A time-limited demo was recently released for the Resident Evil 2 remake, letting you survive against hordes of zombies for a solid half-hour. Your reward for successfully completing the demo is an exclusive new cinematic trailer, but in case you just can't wait or weren't up to the challenge, you can view it above--just beware, it has some possible spoilers if you want to go into the full game fresh.

The trailer is the completion reward for the "1-Shot" demo, which is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It gives you a smattering of gameplay with Leon S. Kennedy, but only a limited time to complete it. You have 30 minutes to try as many times as you'd like, but after that the demo is off-limits. If you managed to unlock the trailer by successfully completing the demo, it's viewable as much as you'd like. The demo will only be available to download until the end of January.

Now Playing: Resident Evil 2 Remake: Demo's Ending Trailer (Spoilers)

While the demo focuses strictly on Leon, the full game will also feature Claire Redfield, just like the original Resident Evil 2. Capcom has promised that it's reimagined some portions of the experience to surprise players. It's also been updated with a modernized control scheme and a new camera perspective to match.

Resident Evil 2 is coming on January 25. It's one of our most anticipated games of 2019, thanks in part to its faithful recreation of the classic survival-horror game. Capcom is even paying respects to your nostalgia with classic costumes. For more details on how to get those and other special goodies, check out our pre-order guide.
