Resident Evil Village Demo Goes Multi-Platform Later This Year
After being teased for the better part of the last month, Capcom’s big Resident Evil Showcase is finally among us and the presentation has yielded no shortage of new information about the popular survival-horror franchise. Alongside the premiere of all-new gameplay for the upcoming Resident Evil Village, a new demo titled “Maiden” was also announced to release today (January 21st) for the playing public, but available exclusively for the PlayStation 5.
While this release leaves out the game’s other slated platforms, it appears a demo is now also headed the way of PC, Xbox Series X/S, and last-gen users as well sometime in Spring 2021. This upcoming demo was touted as being an entirely separate experience from the Maiden version, will go live for all platforms, seemingly including the PlayStation 5 as well. The current demo features the perspective of the mysterious “Maiden” character, with players being tasked with escaping a dungeon without the luxuries of combat or even the ability to block.
The PlayStation 5 Maiden demo is now live! Don’t forget, a multiplatform demo is coming this spring!

Of course, demos haven’t been the only announcement revealed at the Resident Evil Showcase event, with quite a bit revealed for Resident Evil Village, including a new cinematic trailer, the game’s various editions, as well as a new multiplayer mode called RE:Verse. If that wasn’t enough, a look at the upcoming animated Netflix series called Infinite Darkness was also given a showcase, placing the adventure a few years after the fan-favorite Resident Evil 4.
Resident Evil Village is confirmed to release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on May 7th.
