During this afternoon’s Resident Evil Showcase, Capcom shed light on the next Resident Evil Village demo — and it’s a little complicated when you break down who’s getting what and when.
All of Village‘s platforms (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Steam, and Stadia) are getting a “time-limited demo” on May 1 with up to 60 minutes of playtime, and it includes the village and castle. As explained on the stream, you can spend your time exhaustively exploring one area or try them both.
There’s also something for (no surprise) PlayStation users. PS4 and PS5 owners are getting early access to this content: a 30-minute “village demo” on April 17 and a 30-minute “castle demo” on April 24.
Capcom said that PlayStation pre-loading will open up today at 4:00 p.m. Pacific (click those links above), and the multiplatform pre-loading phase will start on April 29 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific.
Here are the exact dates and times for the convoluted demo rollout:
