With Resident Evil Village less than a month away, Capcom is getting ready to ramp up the hype cycle. They recently confirmed a new Resident Evil Showcase for April 15, where a new trailer, fresh details, and more new gameplay details will be shared for the upcoming survival horror sequel. It also seems like a new demo will be coming at the same time.
As reported by MP1st, a second Resident Evil Village demo (titled “Resident Evil Village Gameplay Demo”) has been uploaded to the PSN backend in the USA, Japan, Europe, and Asia regions. Images for the demo’s icon, its splash screen when you boot it up, and the control scheme have also surfaced as a result. Supposedly, it’s file size is going to be 10 GB. Capcom previously said that a second demo of the game would be releasing in the Spring. With it having been uploaded to the PSN backend, it’s likely that the second demo will be going live on the day of the upcoming showcase itself, like the previous demo did.
It’s been previously confirmed that unlike the PS5-exclusive “Maiden” demo, Resident Evil Village’s second demo will be released for all platforms. The game’s also going to be a much meatier gameplay experience and will feature combat. Capcom has also confirmed that it will include content from the final game.
Resident Evil Village launches for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia on May 7.
