There is some action, though, so you'll get to see some of the game's combat. The Definitive Edition adds a pair of playable heroes, as well as some new tunes.

Update 1/11/2019 - The demo is now available Capcom has announced a demo for Resident Evil 2 is coming this Friday, but you're not going to want to screw around in this one. The "1-Shot Demo" for... Resident Evil 2, which hits on PS4, Xbox One, and PC January 11 and expires January 31, has you playing as Leon "as he arrives at Raccoon City Police Station in the ultimate worst first day on the job."

If you die during the demo you're free to restart, but that timer carries over between tries. If you beat the demo, you're free to run through it again until the timer expires. But ostensibly, those 30 minutes are all you have....

It turns out that the publisher behind the Choose Your Own Adventure books, the appropriately named Chooseco LLC., thinks that Netflix is trading on more than just nostalgia for...
