PSA: Capcom Extends Resident Evil Village Demo, Now Playable For 8 Days

The first Resident Evil Village was a PlayStation 5 exclusive. The following demo revealed during latest Capcom showcase was for PS5 and PS4 players, but was only available for a very limited time for a 30-minute play session. Following massive amounts of fan feedback begging for more hands-on time, Capcom has decided to extend the upcoming demo that will be available for all platforms. 

The upcoming Resident Evil Village demo was originally slated to be available for only a short period, beginning on May 1 at 5 p.m. PT and ending on May 2 at the same time. Given that this is the largest demo to date, lasting an hour to encompass both the village and Lady Dimitrescu’s castle, the extension is a smart move for the studio. Ready to jump in and scream your head off, or are you a normal and functioning person? Regardless, here are the revised Resident Evil Village demo times that you should be aware of: 



In case the above image is difficult to read, or for those that may be using text-to-speech programs for visual purposes, the extended demo times are as follows: 

  • North America
      • May 1 – May 9, 5 p.m. Pacific



  • UK
      • May 2 – May 10, 1 a.m. British Summer Time



  • Europe
      • May 2 – May 10, 2 a.m. Central European Summer Time



It’s nice to see that Capcom listened to fans, especially with such tight original demo restrictions. Now, more players will be able to hop into the action early to see if Village truly is up their fandom alley.
