Ethan, now exposed to a new messed up world, is trying to rescue his daughter who has supposedly been kidnapped by Chris Redfield.

The demo holds a lot of the same type of puzzles in the last game, and hasn’t been seen as a horror game as the last one appeared to be. The demo is not related to any gameplay in the actual game however, so it may have a different feel when the full release comes out on May 7th.
