One of primary concern pointed out by players are character movement and then transition to player action response has smoothed out. These changes are focused on combo and evading but none of them will affect your core gameplay.

Enemy attacks are improved in terms of animation and their SFX timing in general with more reactions added for them now. In trial edition, they will give a flinch reaction whenever they are hit with a heavy attack or knockdown.

However, small damage will bring slight flinch reaction from them without their attack flow being interrupted in case of retail version. Newly reworked enemy reactions will now feel better than before in each dealt attack.

Developers tried better defining your status doing exploration or fighting and some UI adjustments were made. Players will get a better in-game perspective and sense of distance due to recent adjustment in camera behavior.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals HUNK & Tofu Bonus Modes

Fan-favorite 4th Survivor HUNK and The Tofu Survivor returns in bonus modes for upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Only two weeks ahead of the anticipated release of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake, developer/publisher Capcom released a thirty minutes long "1-Shot" Demo to give a peak to eager fans of what is coming to them.

Of course, they received a huge number of great responses and it led to the developers showing off two additional playable characters HUNK and Tofu from the original survivor horror classic, something that was confirmed following the E3 2018 Reveal.

Official Twitter account for the game recently offered the fans their first peek at the revamped version of these two beloved characters from the RE2Make.



RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Introduces Lickers

After rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield made it out of a zombie-infested Raccoon City with Sherry Birkin, there was an Umbrella secret operative named HUNK and his story was explored in the unlockable scenario "The Fourth Survivor".

Nicknamed "Grim Reaper", this special agent of Umbrella Security Service was the fourth person to survive the events of Raccoon City incident upon completing his mission to collect G-Virus sample from researcher William Birkin before escaping through a chopper.

Intended to test collision detection for RE2, secret character Tofu appeared in his own bonus minigame "The Tofu Survivor", a more challenging and parodied version of The Fourth Survivor but follows an exact same playthrough.

As a life-sized equivalent of a Tofu, the character wielded a combat knife and a few herbs in a non-canon story of it attempting to go through the same path HUNK followed. Unlike "The 4th Survivor", this one is the hardest mission within the title that was meant for experts.

In the previous incarnation, Tofu used to wear S.T.A.R.S. hat and had a pair of floating gloves holding the knife instead of hands but the remake version will either have the weapon float around or could also be physically attached to it.

The character also had a color change from off-white to a bloody red as a health level indicator for taking damage. Apparently, everyone's beloved bean curd will be taking visible physical damage where chunks of it would seem to have been bitten off.

Just to give you a better look at HUNK and Tofu, below is a GIF from the trailer that came at the end of RE2 "1-Shot Demo".

For the RE2 Remake however, Capcom has yet to reveal whether or not these two bonus mode will be unlocked via the same method they used to in the 1998 original. Both minigames would have been unlocked after completing both Leon and Claire scenarios with an A ranking.

You can still place your pre-order for Resident Evil 2 Remake, which will be arriving for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019. Also, players are welcome to take a test drive with the "1-Shot" Demo" up until January 31.

Resident Evil 2 "1-Shot" Demo Out Now

The "1-Shot" Demo for Resident Evil 2 is here and you have to survive the Raccoon City experience in a short time.

Over the years, developer/publisher Capcom has remade and re-released many of their survival horror titles from Resident Evil series over to various video game platforms and the latest in the line is the upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Even though RE2Make is only weeks from release on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, fans can hardly wait for it. So, a "1-Shot" Demo is offered to players considering that to keep them from falling from the edge of their seats and currently available for everyone.

Have look at how things are going to go once the clock starts ticking after you enter the zombie infested residence of horror.




RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake May Have Micro-Transactions

All you have is just thirty minutes to do whatever you want to or can do with the demo and within that in-game time, you can play as many times as you can. As soon as the clock runs out, the demo is over and that's it.

So, you have to pay attention to your actions and keep a watch on your time to maximize your overall experience as a survivor of zombie-apocalypse. Probably, if we offer you a couple of tips that might come in handy to even the odds you face out there.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Ada Wong Images

Scavenge Supplies
It would be wise of you to look around in each room of Raccoon City Police Department to seek out useful items for survival like First Aid Sprays, Green Herbs, and ammunition. Yes, your time is limited but some useful or important stuff can go unnoticed if you just quickly rush through.

The in-game map can be very useful to tell if there is still something within a room that you haven't found out yet. Red rooms are the one that has some object you haven't come across and other discovered items that players didn't pick up will also be highlighted there.

Stay Alive
Though dying will not end the demo and you can continue as much as you like within the set timeframe of half an hour, the clock is not going back anyhow and that is why, you should try to keep your hero character alive and in kicking form.

If you happen to get bit by a zombie and loose health, the amazing Green Herb of Arklay Mountains can restore some of your health and mixing it with Red Herb will do better. However, a First Aid Spray alone can restore your full life even if it is hanging by a thread.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Introduces Lickers

Fight or Evade
Contrary to what you have gone through in the original RE2, zombies are tougher than ever and will not go down easily. They most probably won't stay down even after you shoot them down multiple times. So, try to put a bullet on their head to keep them from coming back.

Since you want your head attached to shoulder and there is a clock ticking already, the wise thing to do is run away from the undeads lurking around to save time and not let them all jump on you at once. Also, look for wooden boards to block windows before they get the drop on you.

Explore the Map
Established after renovating the former art museum, the newly-formed R.P.D. is a mighty big place and it is easy to get confused about where to go when. The best way to make the most of the demo would be to keeping it within the first floor.

Until you meet Lieutenant Marvin Branagh, look for red lights on computer screens and shutter controls to find your way around. Whatever objectives players have at hand it can be sorted out by taking a look at the map in most cases.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Ada Wong First Look

Look for Puzzles
The 1998 survival horror classic had a lot of puzzle scattered around for players to solve that involved collecting a bunch of key items from different places and so does the RE2 Remake. Take a moment and have a closer look at whatever you have gathered so far.

In case if you are wondering about time, the demo clock stops when you enter a menu and that takes a pressure off from players to switch and shuffle the stuffs they collected and safely investigate without worrying about clock ticking out anytime soon.

You may not stumble onto Mr. X chasing your tail throughout the R.P.D. building or bumped into the giant Alligator on the sewers but then again, you have the main game coming out within the following two weeks to experience that.

The "1-Shot" Demo is a sure shot win because whether or not you can complete it, an exclusive cinematic trailer with highlights on full game will be shown to you regardless. On that note, you can pre-order Resident Evil 2 for your preferred platform to get bonus DLC pack and additional contents.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Demo Coming in January

According to a description on Xbox Store, a 1-Shot demo for Resident Evil 2 Remake will arrive on January 11.

Following the much anticipated reveal of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference, developer/publisher Capcom released a short live demo video of playing RE2 during PlayStation Live.

Pretty much every other fan of the series and players who love horror games have wished to get at it too. Apparently, you can try out a demo of the game next month before the game finally launches on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

According to True Achievements site, a listing description from Microsoft Store reveals that a "Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo" will arrive on January 11 for Xbox One. That means, it will also be available for players on PS4 at the same time.

Even though we are not clear about what they meant by the mentioning of "1-Shot" in the title of it and details say that players can die as many time as they want during the experience but only have only 30 minutes to complete the demo.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Ada Wong Images

Now whether that means that you can only play the demo for once and then you are done or you just have to complete the run within the 30-minute timeframe. Good thing is that we all won't have to wait too long to find that out.

The clip we saw earlier from a demo showed us rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy going inside the Raccoon City Police Department and encounter a few zombies on his own. It is still unclear that what part or parts of the game will be included in RE2Make 1-Shot.

Even though the title comes out on 25th of the upcoming month, the demo with new puzzles and storylines will remain on stores until January 31st. If you are a fan and looking forward to the release of the game, we strongly recommend you taking this early peak.

The 1998 sequel of Capcom's original masterpiece has been considered as one of the best in the series if not the best video game of all time. So far, the Resident Evil 2 Remake has been well received by the fans because of a faithful reinterpretation of the classic with revolutionary RE Engine.

Currently available to download on Switch, PS4 and Xbox One, the demo allows you a single level to explore, which is the pyramid stage you have seen so many times in promo videos and it will lead you to a final face-off against robot master Block Man.

He is apparently a small robot made of blocks who typically uses his ability to drop blocks on his opponents; in this particular case, on Mega Man. A power gear installed within him can transform him to massive size and immense strength.

The other part of the trailer focused on robot master Bounce Man rampaging on the Boing-Boing Park and other debutante robot bosses who will appear for the first time in this game. Being a former exercise instructor, he swings and bounces around to cause trouble to everyone's favorite blue bomber as highlighted in the gameplay from the released video.

Then there are Blast Man, Fuse Man Impact Man and Torch Man to spice things up on various stages throughout the game.

Also, the demo will give players some in-game content to use later in the main game, if enough number of players is able to defeat Block Man before it releases next month. To get an exclusive alternate track for Mega Man 11, pre-order now.
