Update 18/04/21 01:00 – The first Resident Evil Village demo is now live for PS5 and PS4 players, with the Village section of the game available to play until April 18 at 1 AM PDT. The demo will be playable for those in the UK and Europe from April 18 at 7 PM CEST to April 19 at 3 AM CEST.
Original Story – Capcom has announced that a new Resident Evil Village demo for PS4 and PS5 will release on May 1, 2021, and will be available from May 1 at 5 PM PDT to May 2 at 5 PM PDT in North America / May 2 at 2 AM CEST to May 3 at 2 AM CEST.
This second demo will offer just 60 minutes to explore the village and castle areas and you can choose which to explore, spending time in both or just one.
PlayStation players will also get early access to this demo but at different times, with the Village being available for 8 hours from April 17 at 5 PM PDT to April 18 at 1 AM PDT / April 18 7 PM CEST to April 19 3 AM CEST. The Castle will then be available from April 24 5 PM PDT to April 25 at 1 AM PDT / April 25 7 PM CEST to April 26 at 3 AM CEST. The demo PlayStation players get to play early is the same as the one that releases in May, but will be split apart rather than combined together. PlayStation players will also get to play that demo as well.
Pre-load for this demo will also be available to preload now from the PlayStation Store on PS5 and PS4.
Resident Evil Village is scheduled for release on PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One on May 7, 2021. Capcom recently offered a look at the game’s upgrade system, which sees players hunting for wildlife in exchange for stat-boosting recipes via a merchant named The Duke.
