How long does it take to shit your pants in terror? That's the critical question Capcom seems to be asking with the upcoming demo for the Resident Evil 2 Remake.

The demo is set to drop on January 11 on PC, PS4 & Xbox One and will see players tasked with aiding Leon Kennedy in his escape from the Raccoon City Police Department.

As is the norm with any good news, there's a catch. You have just 30 minutes to complete the demo. If you die, the clock keeps ticking so you'll have to play smartly from the outset. Once the clock hits the 30-minute mark, that's it. You're done. The demo can't be restarted or replayed once you reach the imposed time limit.

Upon completing the demo players will unlock an "exclusive" (until it's uploaded on youtube) cinematic trailer which can be watched as many times as you like.

Will you be checking out the demo or will you wait for release day?

The full game launches on PS4, Xbox One and PC on January 25.
