Capcom extending its Resident Evil Village demo availability to a full week


Publisher remembers people live in the real world

While very few had a problem with the well-received demos for Capcom's upcoming Resident Evil Village, many were left frustrated with the publisher's decision to release the taster trial in slight, 24-hour windows. It appears that Capcom has heard the criticism loud and clear, taking it on board for Village's third (and final) demo event.

As of Saturday, May 1, Resi fans will once again be able to creep the boards of The House of Dimitrescu, only this time the demo will remain available for an entire week, with servers open until Sunday, May 9. It should be noted that the demo is still limited to a single hour of gameplay, but now players will at least be able to take that hour at their own convenience.

Furthermore, the demo will be made available on all Resident Evil Village platforms. So whether you're playing on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, or Stadia, you can get your fill of the sequel's sinister locales — and their sinister-still occupants — ahead of the game's official launch on May 7. Personally, I'm yet to find the opportunity to check the demo out, but after hearing rave reactions from my colleagues, I'll be sure to tiptoe through its cobwebbed corridors this coming weekend.
