According to a statement released by Capcom in the last few hours on Famitsu, the famous Japanese company is planning a large number of commemorative events for the 25th anniversary of Resident Evil, and that some of these will focus on the next chapter of the survival horror series, Resident Evil Village.
Resident Evil Village new demo coming soon
Among these upcoming contents, we can also find a new demo of Resident Evil Village which, unlike the first demo, titled Maiden and released last January, will have much more gameplay and will allow us to immerse ourselves even more deeply in the gloomy and evocative settings of the title.
The latter, in fact, will allow us to thoroughly test the new mechanics of the game, which we have had the opportunity to see very superficially in Maiden. If Maiden was created almost purposely to showcase the incredible graphic qualities of the title, this new demo, which at the moment does not yet have a release date or an official title, will be a portion of the full and definitive version of the title.
This will therefore allow us not only to have further confirmation of the beauty of the settings, but also to personally test the new game mechanics that have been implemented in the eighth chapter of the main series of Resident Evil, and which can be exploited thanks to next-generation platforms.
We remind you that Resident Evil Village will be released on May 7, 2021, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S and, exactly like its predecessor Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, it stands as a real turning point for the historic survival horror series.
We just have to wait for more information on this new demo which, according to Capcom itself, will really be able to transport us to a new generation of horror video games, in which the features of the new platforms will be exploited as much as possible.
Capcom also confirms in Famitsu that the next Resident Evil Village demo after MAIDEN will feature a portion taken from the final game, unlike MAIDEN, which is purely a visual demo that was meant to be a technical showcase.#REBHFun
