Entertainment News Update: Capcom has removed the time limit from the free demo of Resident Evil 2, while also adding a chilling Easter egg for the upcoming remake of Resident Evil 3.
The free demo for Resident Evil 2, fresh from its victory as Ultimate Game of the Year at the Golden Joystick Awards, is titled R.P.D. Demo and is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It has been updated to remove the 30-minute time limit of the “1-Shot” demo that was released in January.
While the limited Resident Evil 2 demo awarded players that completed it with an exclusive trailer, the new demo for the horror survival game allows players to explore Raccoon City’s police station at their own pace. It gives players a feel for the zombie onslaught, if they are not yet sold on acquiring their own copy.
The updated Resident Evil 2 demo also adds an Easter egg for the upcoming Resident Evil 3.
Players who investigate the front entrance of the Raccoon Police Department will be able to hear a grotesque voice shouting “STARS,” as reported by various players. The voice belongs to Nemesis, the antagonist of Resident Evil 3 who chases Jill Valentine, the protagonist, throughout the game.
