Resident Evil Village gets new trailer, new demo

Second demo will let users experience one hour of Village

Resident Evil fans got a fresh look at the next game in the survival horror series, Resident Evil Village, during Capcom’s Resident Evil Showcase on Thursday in the form of a new trailer. The new Resident Evil Village trailer offers another look at the lovely, towering Lady Dimitrescu, her less lovely looking daughters, mean Chris Redfield, and other horrors that await Ethan Winters — including the fact that people just won’t stop saying his name!

Capcom also re-confirmed that a second demo for Resident Evil Village — the first, Maiden, dropped in January — is on its way. This one will be multiplatform, and it offers a taste of the game that’s closer to the final product. Tsuyoshi Kanda, producer on Resident Evil Village, said that the second demo will be available for Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC via Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. The demo will be time-limited; players will have an eight-hour window to play the game for up to one hour.

Here’s when the multiplatform Resident Evil Village demo will be available:

  • North America - May 1 5 p.m. PDT to May 2, 5 p.m. PDT
  • Europe - May 2, 2 a.m. CEST to May 3, 2 a.m. CEST
  • Asia - May 2, 8 a.m. HKT to May 3, 8 a.m. HKT

PlayStation owners will get early access to that demo content on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Capcom will spread that demo availability over two time periods, one focusing on the game’s village, the other focusing on its castle.
