Was flannel shirt guy in the original game? It must be at least 18 years since I played it.

if it's not 60fps then probably not PC ... i think nvidia had a 4k60 video of that first gameplay bit a while ago on their channel

The videos are 60fps, as far as I know RE2 on the Pro/X consoles has the option to choose between 1080p/60fps and 4k/30fps, in one of the preview builds the game ran with an unlocked framerate on base ps4 and it dropped to the 40s, but it's been several months so we don't know how the final version will run.

If the game runs at a stable 60fps on pro then I think it'll be quite promising and will be a looker if you have the hardware. DMC5 is 60fps on base ps4 and that game looks goooood.

Play quickly and carefully if you want to see the end of the demo, and be sure to pick up any useful items you see laying around while conserving your ammo. It may be tempting to try and defeat every zombie that stands, or crawls, in your way, but sometimes it’s better to use a few bullets to make an escape route than empty a clip on a monster that refuses to stay dead.

No matter how your demo ends, you’ll get to see a brand-new trailer exclusive to the demo when it’s done, giving you another taste of what to expect from Resident Evil 2 in just a few weeks.
30-minute demo on PS4/Xbox One and the PC (Steam), with an exclusive trailer at the end of it.

It is looking good, but no way I'm touching it because I'll get a heart attack while playing.

So you can only play the demo one time? That’s kind of clever.
yeah, only one time ... and only for 30 minutes max

well, until someone figures out how to get around that on PC ... so like a day or two :p

Hard limits like this really tend to put me off. On one hand it's Resi 2, on the other I'm a dawdler...at 30 minutes I'll probably have just about got used to the controls and display!

30 minutes of me messing with the options and taking a picture
Yeah, I'm curious about this demo, but will have to decide whether I should waste 15 minutes setting up the Steam Controller or just resort to K&M.,

Did they confirm any insects? There were roaches too in the original right? I swear they said they were going to show them but I never saw them.

My card finally met its match and it managed to eat up more vram than it could handle at higher resolution textures.
