As with Resident Evil 7 before it, Capcom has provided fans with a short, intense look at Resident Evil Village in the form of a standalone demo. That demo, dubbed “Maiden,” is available now on the PlayStation Network store for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. It’s not quite as puzzling as the demo for RE7, but it’s definitely possible to get hung up and miss important clues that will show you the way to work your way through this short, frightening slice of the castle.
Below, you’ll find a quick, spoiler-free walkthrough that will lead you through the demo and help you if you find yourself stuck. We won’t spoil any scares or story elements, although we do highlight a few notes that can give you a little extra insight into what’s going on. You can check out the video below for a full runthrough of the entire demo, as well.
Upon waking up, you’ll find yourself in a dark dungeon cell. Look to one side to find a crumpled-up note hidden in the wall. Reading it provides you several clues you’ll need to escape the dungeon, but they’re a bit obtuse. First, you need to get out of the cell–crouch down and look under your wooden bed for a hole through which you can crawl.
