Resident Evil fans are eagerly waiting for the next game in the series to release. Resident Evil Village is scheduled to be released on May 7th across multiple platforms and with its release getting closer, we’re getting more news about the title. Yesterday, Capcom released a bunch of news about the game’s story, various modes, creatures, and an early demo version for those who wish to try the game before committing to a purchase.

A while back Capcom allowed PS5 players to check out the first Resident Evil Village demo which was exclusive to the console. However, this time around Resident Evil Village demo will reach more platforms while still allowing PlayStation fans to get the better end of the stick. According to the announcement, the new demo should last one hour and will be separated into two parts – 30 minutes for the castle, and 30 minutes for the village.
