Resident Evil Village Getting Multiple Demos, And It’s All Pretty Confusing

More chances to demo Resident Evil Village are on the way, and if you’re a PlayStation 4 or PS5 owner, you’re going to get access to them earlier than everyone else. Capcom will soon let you check out two new areas from Resident Evil Village, the titular Village section and the Castle section, across two separate 30-minute demos. Players on other platforms will eventually get access to those demos as well, but after a bit of a wait.

Capcom released a new trailer and outlined the demos during its 25th Anniversary Resident Evil Showcase presentation, which gave a bunch of new details about Resident Evil Village and other projects for the franchise. The two demos Capcom mentioned will be released during the three weeks leading up to Resident Evil Village’s launch on May 7, but they’ll be available during some very specific windows.

The PlayStation releases of the two demos are being called 8 Hours in the Village (get it, because it’s Resident Evil 8). On Saturday, April 17, PlayStation owners can access the Village demo. You have an eight-hour window to play 30 minutes of the Village section, and there are no restrictions on streaming. And then on April 24–one week later–PlayStation owners get another eight-hour window, this time to play the Castle demo, for another 30-minute look at the game. PlayStation owners can pre-load the demos now so they’ll be ready to go when the windows open.
