Devil May Cry 5 is Getting a New Demo in February

Using Capcom's proprietary RE ENGINE, Resident Evil 2 offers a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game. If you die, you'll be able to keep retrying to beat the mission until your 30 minutes is up. A new cinematic trailer will play at the end of your time and then that's it.

BUT, you only have 30 minutes.

Although players can't restart the demo after the timer ends, there's no limit for the number of times the trailer can be viewed. The demo will only be playable for 30 minutes and puts players in the boots of Leon Kennedy. Players who complete the demo in under 30 minutes will be able to restart it and play until they've used up the half hour.

It's nice to see Capcom providing a demo on PC for one of it's big titles - I'm looking at you, Devil May Cry 5 - even if it comes with a bizarrely contrived set of limitations on your playtime. The station is filled to the brim with zombies to survive and puzzles to solve.

There's been no news since, but here's where things get interesting: Capcom has announced that it's hosting a "special" Resident Evil 2 livestream on that same day, Friday the 11th January. Once you finally reach an "S" rank the full theme song will begin to play and when you get a triple "S" rank, the volume pumps up, the effects are in full swing, and the characters begin to react to the epic style abilities.

As you play through the demo, the music is reactive, much like every other game that's been around since the seventh generation of gaming.
