Capcom surprised fans in early December.
The Japanese developer and publisher took to the Sony State of Play stream to announce a Resident Evil 3 Remake, following on from the massive success of the Resident Evil 2 Remake that launched earlier this year.
To celebrate the announcement and get fans excited about the future of the franchise, the Resident Evil 2 demo received some important updates on PS4 and Xbox One.
This stealth update means that players that haven't experienced the demo yet have a chance to play the stellar horror remake.
The demo was originally launched by Capcom as a 1-Shot demo last year. That meant you could only play the game for a set amount of time… a good tease for the game, but it (obviously) left fans wanting more.
A masterstroke on the eve of the games release date. But for anyone left unsure by the end of the demo time limit, it didn't exactly allow for any further convincing.
Thankfully, Capcom has updated the RE2 demo on the PlayStation and Microsoft Store earlier this week. The key difference is that you can now play it as much as you want. No limits or restrictions, outside of obviously being a demo to begin with and not the full game.

For those who need a reminder of what you're getting yourself in for, here's the demo description:
"A deadly virus engulfs the residents of Raccoon City in September of 1998, plunging the city into chaos as flesh eating zombies roam the streets for survivors. An unparalleled adrenaline rush, gripping storyline, and unimaginable horrors await you. Witness the return of Resident Evil 2."
Intriguingly, the demo also features one key new feature that was previously missing from the main game which gives players a taste of what to expect when Resi 3 launches next year.
According to diligent zombie-hunters that have been exploring the demo, it seems Nemesis himself has infiltrated the demo.
If you head to the Raccoon City Police Department's front gates in the demo, you can hear the big, bad, STARS-hating T-Virus carrier calling out.
You know, shouting/groaning "STARS" somewhere off in the background. A harrowing sign of things to come.
Perhaps he's just before Nemesis is about to kill Brad Vickers.

Resident Evil 3 Remake will be releasing on April 3, 2020 on PS4, Xbox One and Steam.
“Just like the remake of Resident Evil 2 earlier this year, you’re in for a new viewpoint as you explore Raccoon City, with an over the shoulder camera placing you right in the thick of the action as you navigate abandoned streets and iconic locations,” Capcom states in a press release.
“Escaping the city won’t be easy, though; the undead still roam the desolate landscape, and there’s a much larger problem looming in the shadows.
“If you thought Tyrant (aka “Mr. X”) was terrifying, you’re in for a whole new level of terror when Nemesis comes to town.
