We're less than a month away from the release of Resident Evil Village -- it's out May 7 for PC and Consoles -- and as part of a new Resident Evil Showcase we got word on new time-limited demos coming to PS4/PS5 starting this weekend with other platforms to get an additional demo on May 1. Plus, a new cinematic trailer.
Dubbed the 4th Trailer, you can check it out below.
With Resident Evil Village less than a month away, we’re opening the gate, once again, to the world of survival horror. In the latest trailer, the creeping dead of the village is the least of Ethan’s worries as he plunges further into the unknown. In order to rescue his kidnapped daughter and seek answers to haunting questions, Ethan will have to face bitter truths about why his life was once again shattered, and why the heroic Chris Redfield has taken such a dark turn. Who, or what, will Ethan find waiting for him at the end of his journey, and what terrifying foes will he encounter along the way?
Focusing on protagonist Ethan Winters we get to see both the outdoor and interior locations of the game -- and yeah, it all looks suitably dark and sinister. With muted colours and gothic art direction Resident Evil Village is shaping up to be a visual spectacle.
Which brings us to the Resident Evil Village Gameplay Demos -- which will be time limited and then some.
Coming to PS4 and PS5 first, this weekend sees a 30 minute Village Demo arrive Sunday April 18 and begin at 7pm AEST and finish that night April 19 at 3am AEST.
The following weekend sees a 30 minute Castle Demo arrive Sunday April 25 and begin at 7pm AEST and finish that night April 26 at 3am AEST.
Thankfully pre-loading is available now.
For PC and Xbox (and more PlayStation action) a 60 minute combined Village & Castle Demo is set to kick off on the weekend prior to game's release -- running from Sunday May 2 at 10am to Monday May 3 at 10am.
Yeah, it's a little convoluted. Still, Resident Evil Village is shaping up to be the biggest release so far for 2021.
