After the first demo dedicated to Resident Evil Village published on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 a few days ago, or on April 18, another demo dedicated to the new Capcom horror will arrive, always exclusively for the two Sony consoles.
Resident Evil Village Castle Demo Pre-Load Download
Pending the arrival of this second demo, which will focus on the Dimitrescu Castle, an article has been published on the pages of the PlayStation Blog where Tsuyoshi Kanda, producer of Resident Evil Village, revealed some details relating to the aforementioned demo.
First of all, the producer explained that it is possible to pre-load the demo, although it is not yet available:
It’s not available to play just yet, but you can go to the PlayStation Store to pre-download the Resident Evil Village Gameplay Demo in anticipation. To clear up any confusion, you just have to download that one demo. Everything will be automatically available to play through the Gameplay Demo during the designated times.
Subsequently, Kanda talked about the castle that will be the background to the demo and the differences with the setting of the previous demo, namely the village:
When you first step into the castle, you may immediately feel the contrast between the decrepit village of the first early access experience to its regal interior. One of the major motifs of this area, and the game in general, was creating environments filled with beauty. When players aren’t running for their lives, we wanted to create a setting that they could enjoy by venturing through and slowly taking in all the sights and scenes.
The producer then focused on the difference between this new chapter of the famous Capcom horror saga and its predecessor, that is Resident Evil 7 that gave new life to the brand to which it belongs:
In Resident Evil 7 biohazard, our main focus was creating something claustrophobic with a lot of depth. With Resident Evil Village, we wanted to use what we learned as a foundation to build upon and create something expansive with more variety. The juxtaposition within Castle Dimitrescu, between the well-lit halls of the upper floors and the cold dark chambers down below, is just a small example of the different kinds of environment Ethan Winters will find himself in as he desperately searches for his daughter Rose.
Finally, Kanda talked about the game’s exclusive features on PlayStation 5, including 3D audio and Adaptive Triggers:
For those of you who have the pleasure of trying out our game on PS5, I’d also like to draw attention to some additional features. On PS5, you’ll have an extra level of immersion as you walk through the environments with 3D audio surrounding them, high-fidelity graphics using ray tracing, and adaptive triggers to help you feel the extra weight of the weapons as well.
To conclude, we remind you that Resident Evil Village will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on May 7.
