Capcom confirmed in a live stream that players can look forward to two demo versions of Resident Evil Village. One of them is available for download exclusively for Sony’s PlayStation 5.

As part of a recent live stream, Capcom not only confirmed the release date for Resident Evil Village, but also announced two demos. The first demo version, which will let us explore the castle that can be seen in the trailer, is available for download and is reserved exclusively for PlayStation 5 owners. The Japanese company also gave the first details about this, because we will not play protagonist Ethan Winters in it.
You read that correctly, in the upcoming demo version, which is only reserved for gamers on Sony’s latest console, we are not allowed to slip into the shoes of the actual main character. Instead, we play a character that the creators simply call “Maiden” and who cannot defend himself. Accordingly, the aim of the player in this section will be to avoid confrontations with the bloodthirsty residents of the castle as much as possible.
This section is not part of the finished game, but, as Resident Evil Village producer Pete Fabiano confirmed during the showcase, a unique gaming experience.
But players on other platforms should also get the chance to play the survival horror title before the release of Resident Evil Village. Those responsible confirmed another demo version in the live stream, but did not provide any further details. The game version should appear in the course of spring 2021. Accordingly, we don’t have to wait too long.
Resident Evil Village will be released on May 7, 2021, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Did somebody say demo? (We did. We said demo.) Revealed during #REShowcase, a PlayStation 5 exclusive visual demo, Maiden, will be available for download starting later today!
