Resident Evil Village's multi-platform demo has been extended - Capcom now respects your time

Gamers now have a week to play Resident Evil Village's demo

Resident Evil Village's PC Demo will be released on May 1st

Resident Evil Village's multi-platform demo has been extended 

Capcom's Resident Evil Village demo had a problem; it doesn't respect your time. The game's early access PlayStation demos were only available for eight hours each, making the demo difficult to play if you had any work or other time restrictions. Capcom needlessly restricted the public's access to their demo, and fans were not happy about it. 

On May 1st/2nd, Resident Evil Village's extended demo will be released for PC, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia; with Capcom confirming that the demo will be available for seven days, extending the demo's 24-hour release window sevenfold. 

This demo extension should allow all Resident Evil fans to enjoy the demo, as the demo's one-hour runtime should easily fit somewhere within your weekly schedule. This extension will also allow gamers to play Resident Evil Village's demo after the full game's release on May 7th.  

Like other recent Resident Evil games, Village will utilise Capcom's RE Engine, though the engine has been upgraded since the release of Resident Evil 3's remake. On PC and next-generation (now current-generation) consoles, Resident Evil Village will support hardware-accelerated ray tracing.

As it says we have 1 hour to experience the demo, I bet someone comes up with a workaround to extend that time indefinitelyQuote
