Resident Evil 2 Remake is released on January 25th, and to celebrate the hotly-anticipated release, today, Capcom has announced the opening of an immersive bar based on the series’ infamous Raccoon City Police Department (RPD).
Following a storyline inspired by the iconic game, the Resident Evil 2 Safe House is open for two days – January 25th and 26th, and guests will be encouraged to take shelter in the last safe area of Raccoon City and get their hands on the real-blood antidote to save them from the devastating T-virus sweeping the city, alongside settling their nerves with other classic Midwest American cocktails, beers, wines and rations.
There are three ways to take part in the Resident Evil 2 Safe House, all of which have a different entry process which can be viewed in more detail via the dedicated website linked below:
- Resident Evil 2 Safe House Experience & Bar: feeling brave enough to make your way through a derelict RPD following the Raccoon City outbreak of the devastating T-virus? Want to put your survival instincts to the test in a bid to reach the last remaining safe area? Visit the website to find out more and book your slot.
Resident Evil 2 Safe House Bar: each day there will be a selection of walk-in spaces available for the Resident Evil™ 2: Safe House Bar only. Visit the website to find out more.

Laura Skelly, Senior PR Manager, Capcom comments: “Playing on the idea of survival, we wanted to give fans a little glimpse into Resident Evil 2’s iconic universe and challenge them to test their survival instincts in the environment of the critically acclaimed survival horror game. We are looking forward to opening the doors of the Raccoon City Police Department on January 25th to coincide with the game’s launch and seeing who will be among the lucky survivors to make it up to the Safe House unscathed and get to sample the our real-blood antidote cocktail!”

Resident Evil 2 Remake – 1-Shot Demo Trailer!
Horror fans around the world will get an intense sneak peek at Capcom’s hotly anticipated title Resident Evil 2 before its launch with a special demo event starting this week for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players via Steam. Available to download for a limited time from Jan. 11 to Jan. 31, this will be the first opportunity for fans to experience the completely reimagined horror classic from home.
Aptly named the “1-Shot Demo,” players must take on the challenge of surviving the horrors of Raccoon City in just 30 minutes. If players complete the mission objective under 30 minutes, they can restart the mission until they use up their full time. If players succumb to the zombies during their 30 minutes, they can continue any number of times until the full 30 minutes have been reached.
The end of the demo reveals a brand new cinematic trailer exclusive to demo participants. While players cannot restart the playable demo after their time is up, there are no limitations on how many times the trailer can be viewed.
In the “1-Shot demo,” players step into the boots of rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy as he arrives at Raccoon City Police Station in the ultimate worst first day on the job. Leon must survive vicious zombies and solve puzzles to find safe passage out of the station. With an entire building of flesh-eating nightmares lurking between Leon and his escape while the clock ticks down, players need to be sure they’re killing more than just time.

Resident Evil 2 Remake: It’s coming, and soon!
Resident Evil 2 returns, completely re-built from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, the game 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.
The nightmares return reimagined for the PS4 and PS4 Pro (and presumably, Xbox One and PC – I’m amusing so, but this was a Sony presentation).
In Resident Evil 2, the classic action, tense exploration, and puzzle solving gameplay that defined the Resident Evil series returns. Players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City that transformed its population into deadly zombies. Both Leon and Claire have their own separate playable campaigns, allowing players to see the story from both characters’ perspectives. The fate of these two fan favorite characters is in players hands as they work together to survive and get to the bottom of what is behind the terrifying attack on the city. Will they make it out alive?
Resident Evil 2 Remake is released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on January 25th, 2019.
