Capcom to Recruit US Testers for New Resident Evil Game

Capcom is looking for U.S. based RE Ambassadors to test out a new Resident Evil game very soon.

We already know that developer/publisher Capcom got on board for development of a sequel to 2017 survival horror game Resident Evil 7 following release, even though it is still not clear whether or not it is called Resident Evil 8.

lately, Capcom has been sending out invitation to members of their RE Ambassadors program who are residing in United States, to test out a new Resident Evil game that is currently under early phase of development.

According to Biohaze, the video game developer has sent emails to RE Ambassadors based on Japan last week. Now they are seeking out members within U.S. community to recruit testers and doing the same to get some feedback.

Interested applicants that lives in Los Angeles will be required to be free on September 20 or 21 and those from New York on September 23 or 24. However, they will not be compensated for their valued time and travel expenses.

Other requirement a participant should have is to have played at least any Resident Evil title in past aside from being a member. There is clearly no hint at if they will test out a remake of early title, a sequel to RE7 or even a spin-off.

After Resident Evil 2 Remake saw a massive opening on January 2019, fans were rallying for a follow-up with Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake. Regardless, Capcom seems to be going ahead with Biohazard storyline through Resident Evil 8 for now.

Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake! Again!

Capcom has been teasing photos on twitter that clearly hint at a very possible remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

In an absolute knocking the ball out of the park move, developer/publisher Capcom has seen a smashing success with their recent release of Resident Evil 2 Remake that took newcomers and veterans back to roots of survival horror.

Now that they have delivered fans what they have been wanting for years, the company shifts their focus to next Resident Evil game and they most probably are on board with a Resident Evil 3 Remake according to mysterious tease from social media.

While playing as either Claire Redfield or Leon Kennedy in RE2Make, players enter Raccoon City Police Department at a very early point of their journey into zombie apocalypse and come to a massive hole on a wall even before Mr. X arrives.

With Claire standing next to it, Capcom posted a photo of that wrecked wall that clearly teasing of a stalker enemy.

While Claire and Leon were trying to get out of Raccoon City with little Sherry Birkin, Jill Valentine was looking for an escape as well but her attempts were to evade the titular tyrant monstrosity Nemesis rather than the city itself.

Since events from both RE2 and RE3 are set on Raccoon City, it shouldn't be a big surprise why they already added this part into an early installment. There are good chances for players to revisit similar areas from RE2Make into upcoming follow-up title.

They also posted another photo of Jill from Resident Evil HD Remaster only a day before, as someone is watching her under a bed. In both cases, she is a lead character in those games and a mysterious stalking foe is hinted heavily.

After RE2 Remake was officially revealed back at E3 2018, Capcom posted a photo of Nemesis on Twitter a month later on Friday the 13th, comparing to another stalking adversary Jason Voorhees, which led fans to believe it a tease to another remake.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 New Development and Plot Rumors

Nemesis provided a unique kind of horror where protagonist character is constantly chased throughout the city blocks by an RPG-wielding unkillable monster, which is hell-bent on eradicating any and every living S.T.A.R.S. member.

According to Twitter leaks from reliable source EVIL VR back in January 2019, developers are currently working on Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil 8 but are very much interested in delivering RE3 before going back to origin of Eveline.

Resident Evil Becomes Capcom's Best-Selling Franchise

With an overall sales number of 90 million units worldwide, Resident Evil has become Capcom's best-selling franchise.

Without any scope for doubts, Resident Evil is one of the most popular video game series that developer/publisher Capcom has ever worked on, establishing the genre of survival horror and made a hit franchise out of it over the last two decades.

RE franchise of games have also set a track record of great commercial success by selling millions of copies worldwide each time the company releases a new installment and now that has officially amassed a whooping total of 90 million units.

When the Japanese video game developer initially started working on original Resident Evil back in 1996, they were not sure how successful their reinvention of Sweet Home would turn out to be but never expected it to be a best-seller.

The company was so impressed by its success that they started developing a sequel just after a month. Although they developed and scrapped an early version after completing 60% of the game, Resident Evil 2 eventually became an instant classic and even bigger hit.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds DMX Song

In 2005, Capcom took a more action-oriented approach with Resident Evil 4 but after realizing how far they have moved from the core survival elements, the studio took a detour to roots of horror by launching Resident Evil 7 in 2017.

Till date, both Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 remains the best-selling games of RE franchise by selling over 11 million and 8.8 million copies worldwide respectively over various platforms despite garnering mixed reactions from critics and fans.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 New Development and Plot Rumors

Recently released Resident Evil 2 Remake has already shipped over 4 million physical copies and gaining critical acclaim from almost everyone, helping Capcom to surpass an impressive 90 million copies sold from its entire series and becoming their best-selling franchise.

This definitely has the developers renewed their interest with RE games with more seriousness and hopefully they will easily cross 100 million mark with the release of upcoming Resident Evil 3 Remake, followed by Resident Evil 8.

RELATED: Resident Evil, Zero & 4 Nintendo Switch Release Date

Although Resident Evil games have found a larger audience on PC and modern day PlayStation and Xbox consoles, many of the classic RE titles saw release on Nintendo's handheld Game Boy Color consoles from 1998 to hybrid console Nintendo Switch.

A series of six live-action Resident Evil movies starring actress Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) in lead role is looking for a reboot with director Johannes Roberts and a TV series is currently in development for streaming giant Netflix.

Resident Evil, Zero & 4 Nintendo Switch Release Date

Capcom announced the Nintendo Switch release date for upcoming ports of Resident Evil classic titles.

Although developer/publisher Capcom are not considering a port of newly released Resident Evil 2 Remake on Nintendo Switch anytime soon, they already planned on releasing some of the classic titles from their beloved survival horror franchise.

Fan-favorite titles Resident Evil, Zero & 4 for Nintendo's next-gen handheld console were originally revealed back in October 2018 and were due an official release date, which they have recently announced to coming on May 21, 2019.

These three titles mentioned above were originally released for Nintendo GameCube console from 2002 through 2005. Later, all of them saw a high-definition version release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One within 2015 to 2016.

Resident Evil HD Remaster is a remake of the 1996 original with a major graphical overhaul and new gameplay mechanics. Players assumed the role of S.T.A.R.S. agents Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine too uncover the deadly secrets of Spencer Mansion.

Resident Evil Zero came out serving as a prequel to Raccoon City mansion incident starring officer Rebecca Chambers and ex- Marine Corps member Billy Coen. A unique partner system allowed players to control both of them for solving many in-game puzzles and fight monsters.

Resident Evil 4 is the first game in the series to introduce a different type of primary enemies other than zombies, replaced the fixed camera angles with over-the-shoulder view and merged survival horror elements with third-person shooter games.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Have No Plans for Switch Release

A physical copy titled Resident Evil Origins Collection featuring Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil HD Remaster is also part of their release plan. However, only North American customers can purchase this bundle and would not be out in retail for European regions.

Capcom has yet to share the price for these titles on Nintendo hybrid console but they will be available for digital pre-order on eShop from February 28, 2019. Players can now test their skills to survive zombie outbreak on the go now that these classics are coming on Switch.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Regina from Dino Crisis

Fans of classic survival horror series Dino Crisis can now play as protagonist Regina in a new mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Modder community seems to be in love with the newly released survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake from developer/publisher Capcom ever since it came out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as they keep releasing one mod after another.

Taking inspiration from another action-adventure survival horror franchise Dino Crisis by the same studio, a recent fan mod for RE2Make lets player take the role of Regina from the classic series in the middle of Raccoon City zombie outbreak.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Nemesis

Created by Shinji Mikami who is responsible for the inception of fan-favorite Resident Evil, Dino Crisis also explored aspects of survival horror but players had to deal with menacing dinosaurs instead of zombified monsters chasing after them.

Series protagonist and U.S. Special Forces operative, Regina was one of the most popular female characters in video games back in 90's when the first game of the series was released and then followed by several installments in later years.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds DMX Song

Just like original Resident Evil 2, Dino Crisis 2 would let players switching control between Regina and her new teammate Dylan Morton. However, the series sort of died with the release of Dino Crisis 3 in 2003 for awful camera angles and lack of enemy variation.

Wanting for a revival of the series, fans have been requesting Capcom for some time to bring back Regina through the remake of the franchise and now that RE2 has met with immense success, they are hopeful that the studio can do it right if they really want.

Check out the demo of brand-new fan mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake by Crazy Potato but do not expect any dinosaurs though.

Regina mod is just a reskin of Claire Redfield with hair textures taken from Ada Wong character design of course. Appearance of Leon S. Kennedy are changed into her partner Dylan Morton but this one particularly took a little less work as it seems.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is solid statement of Capcom's capability of doing remake right but apparently; they do not have plans for a Dino Crisis reboot and the fan-made mod by Crazy Potato is the closest experience we can have to relive our nostalgia of the series.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Nemesis

A fan mod has introduced Resident Evil 3 villain Nemesis into Resident Evil 2 Remake by replacing Mr. X.

Fans of survival horror and franchise loyalists loved the newly released Resident Evil 2 Remake from developer/publisher Capcom. It has also been very popular in the fan modder community who just love to tweak the game and add various changes.

Lately, a fan mod has replaced the theme song for returning villain Mr. X with hit song "X Gon' Give It To Ya" of rapper DMX and now has entirely swapped him with the titular character Nemesis from next game in the series, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

RE2 Remake builds everything from the ground up and overhauls a lot of aspect that received warm reception of fans. One such element was re-imagining of trench coat wearing stalking Tyrant enemy Mr. X, who now relentlessly pursues players upon seeing.

This certain trait has been unique to Resident Evil 3 boss character Nemesis, who is armed with a rocket launcher and constantly chases RE3 protagonist Jill Valentine throughout Raccoon City while also seeking out any remaining S.T.A.R.S. members to dispatch.

RELATED: Player Beats Resident Evil 2 Remake on Hardcore Mode, No-Hit Run

Now that Capcom has made Mr. X an unstoppable killing machine, he acts a lot like his successor Nemesis, who will stop at nothing from completing his objective and will not go down or stay down for long no matter how much firepower you pour in.

Since they both are now almost same in nature and are based to work in Raccoon City, a new mod by user ZERO has taken things to next level by replacing Mr. X of RE2 Remake with the Nemesis to get chased by for an entire campaign.

Take a look at the modding of Nemesis into the game chasing down Claire Redfield on top of the R.P.D. building.

Of course, the modder has used a reskinned version of terrible Tyrant from RE2, which is why it looks slightly awful but the fear factor is right there in its presence and the moment you hear it saying "S.T.A.R.S." kicks the horror nostalgia right in.

After long requests from fans for years, a remake of Resident Evil 2 has finally become a reality on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Players now want a remake of Resident Evil 3, which according to reports are next in line before Capcom proceeds with Resident Evil 8.

Not a full month has passed since the survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake came out from developer/publisher Capcom, fans from all over the world are playing the game like crazy and some are taking it to the next level with exciting new mods.

Already a series of fan-created mod is out there to tweak with in-game aspects for fun and now a popular song from 2008 of rapper DMX has made it to the game via a newly created mod that replaces theme song of a certain enemy.

Released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last month, RE2 Remake has received a few notable mod for playing as original Resident Evil character Chris Redfield, switching back to first-person perspective or a fixed camera angle like 1998 classic so far.

An independent modder known as DJPop attempted to and successfully changed the actual theme song "Black Impact" for returning villain Mr. X with "X Gon' Give It To Ya" rap song by DMX in several scenes where players would come across this monster.

After Capcom announced the remake back in 2015, they totally rebuild the game using their revolutionary RE Engine that helped creating Resident Evil 7. Series protagonist and fan favorite enemies received an overhaul in terms of AI and graphics.

One of the boss characters that returned in RE2Make is a trench coat wearing Tyrant creature T-00, going by the name of Mr. X and he has been made into a stuff of raw terror that was deployed into Raccoon City to retrieve a G-Virus sample and kill all survivors.

The moment you hear the sound of his stomping boots throughout the corridor or the hallway of R.P.D., you know that you are going to be in a whole world of trouble if you do not move immediately to hide from his sight before he locks on you.

Unlike the early rendition of the boss, 2019 remake version of Mr. X is a relentless stalker and virtually unstoppable. Even if you manage to momentarily take him down with a Flash Grenade or a couple of head-shots, he will get back to his boots right in.

Of course this doesn't assist you in killing zombies or give you some gameplay perks but the fear of encountering the character in any situation will come as less stressful than it used to be and makes him slightly less scary without nerfing his punches.

Adding DMX's "X Gon' Give It To Ya" as Mr. X theme song was originally inspired from a recently popular meme of Resident Evil 2 Remake where players were adding the track to videos of the boss character and fan communities have finally modded it into the game.

Player Beats Resident Evil 2 Remake on Hardcore Mode, No-Hit Run

The long-awaited horror remake of Resident Evil 2 is a cakewalk for YouTuber CarcinogenSDA and here a "no-hit" walkthrough run by him.

Fans of survival horror game are having a great time with the recently released Resident Evil 2 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, a considerable number of people are failing to enjoy it because they find it too difficult.

Amidst many complain of newcomers that are unable to get past the police station or constantly getting their butt handed to them by Mr. X, we came across a playthrough of RE2 Remake by a player where he completes "Leon A" story with ease, taking no damage.

Going through the highest difficulty mode was to prove a point that even though tricky, it can be done. Best part of the whole experience was the inclusion of every cut-scene alongside the helpful commentary for those who need some tips.

You might want to take note on why you should shoot the knees off a zombie rather than trying to get a headshot as they do not always blow their brains out for good. The terrifying trench coat wearing Tyrant bio-weapon doesn't seem to give him any tough time either.

Another grand take from this video is masterful inventory management and using the right weapons for each enemy type. Although the entire playthrough is done on PC version, it wouldn't hurt console players can take a look as well.

So, it's time to quit whining about zombies being bullet sponges, Mr. X is giving you a hard time by being too persuasive, weapons are weak and get your ass back in the game trying to "git gud" instead, because only that would really help you other than anything.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is actually everything you want in a remake and then some more but it is also obvious that not everyone is an ace survivor who can overcome the Raccoon City outbreak like a walk in the park even on our best day and that is okay.

Even though an original Resident Evil character, S.T.A.R.S. member Chris Redfield was not supposed to be present throughout the outbreak of Raccoon City. However, his full character model has been discovered within the code of RE2 Remake.

We agree that his eyes look kind of creepy and his mouth doesn't move when dialogues are delivered in Leon's voice but that is because it was never really meant for playing and Capcom probably didn't mean to reveal the model either.

The most obvious issue with this model that you cannot ignore is that his guns were not animated properly and that is why, they will be floating around him when player tries to holster them. To be fair, it was an unfinished model.

Capcom may switch back to third-person mode for Resident Evil 8 following the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake.

A re-imagination of original survival horror classic, RE2 Remake opened up the possibility of a Resident Evil 3 Remake but at the same time, the series has a lot of potential to go ahead with an inevitable inception of Resident Evil 8 as well.

So, the next Resident Evil game and the one after that was about to follow the first-person perspective for player. However, recent report suggests that Capcom is now planning to switch back to third-person mode for their next game after RE2Make received critical and commercial success.

Apparently, Evil VR previously Tweeted about 30 minutes "1-Shot" Demo before it was revealed by the publisher, in case you are looking for credibility of the source. The revealed details are not out of place either if you have been following the franchise.

Back in the day, Resident Evil 2 was scrapped after completing almost 60% of the development and was dubbed Resident Evil 1.5. Female protagonist character Elza Walker costume from that build is included in Deluxe Edition and Collector's Edition of RE2 as a skin for Claire Redfield.

Similarly, initial concept of Resident Evil 4 was made into Devil May Cry series and another version was canned for technical limitations. Concepts of a nightmarish enemy armed with a metal hook labeled as the Hook Man from RE 3.5 may also be adapted to the next game.

The studio originally planned for Leon Kennedy to get infected by a virus that would cause him to suffer from hallucinations and see ghostly apparitions in RE4, which will likely be borrowed to Resident Evil 8 from the Hook Man version.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Deluxe Edition Content

Evil VR has added that even though developers are exploring origin of Eveline and other theory, they would not complete RE8 before the rumored Resident Evil 3 Remake. Although open for more remakes, the studio is not interested in a remake of Resident Evil: Code Veronica.



RELATED: Resident Evil Movie Reboot to Be Based on Resident Evil 7

Despite all the rumors for Capcom to overhaul Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, they noted that the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake will determine the future of a follow-up project and judging by fan response, it is pretty safe to brace ourselves for Nemesis to come chasing.

For now, we advise you to take the news with a grain of salt since none of these are from official source but then again, don't you think the gameplay mechanics of RE2 blending into the storyline of Biohazard saga would be kind of awesome to experience?

Resident Evil 2 Remake Will Have Ghost Survivors Mode

Capcom will be adding Ghost Survivors Mode to Resident Evil 2 Remake that explores an alternate story.

As we approach towards the most-anticipated release of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake that is only days from launching on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019, developer/publisher Capcom reveals a newly introduced mode in the game.

Last week, they eventually teased the fans with few images of HUNK and Tofu few days after releasing the 30 minutes long "1-Shot" Demo. Now, the developer has revealed of a brand-new content titled Ghost Survivors Mode.

Following E3 2018 Announcement of RE2 Remake, the return of HUNK and Tofu was confirmed. Fans were not sure whether these two will be standalone DLC but Capcom recently assured of including The 4th Survivor and The Tofu Survivor as bonus modes within retail copy.

People found out about Ghost Survivors Mode through a stream before it was officially revealed to be a post-launch content. You will be given the choice to pick Robert Kendo, Mayor Michael Warren's daughter Katherine or a fallen USS member.

By the looks of it, Ghost Survivors is the equivalent of Mercenaries or Raid mode for the game where none of the lead characters will show up. The name of the mode and the included character also suggests that it is focused on the ones who didn't survive the Raccoon City outbreak.

Katherine, Kendo and the USS member may end up creating an alternate reality B-side of the story and might ended up adding some new monsters even though the officials assured that RE2 Remake will not feature any new creatures or enemies.

Although RE2Make started with a troubled development after officially announcing the project back in 2015, the studio took everything that made it a classic in the first place and delivered something that is truly a masterpiece.

Originally Capcom planned to release the game on the 20th anniversary of the franchise but then they decided to give developers enough time to do proper justice to the title and the mind blowing graphical overhaul makes it all worth the wait.

Even before they could even release the game, Capcom could tell from the fan response they are receiving after the E3 demonstration that they have managed to lived up to fan expectation, something that is considered as a rare feat in video game industries.

While Resident Evil 2 Remake is coming to Steam, PS4 and XB1 in next few days, rumors of remake for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is already in the air. They even plan to do a remake of Resident Evil HD Remaster if everything plays out nicely for the reinvention of this 1998 classic.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
