ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: Resident Evil Village is the 10th main game in the Resident Evil series and the sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. It will be released on May 7 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC and Stadia.
Capcom released a PS5 exclusive Resident Evil Village demo in January, which sees players take on the role of a character called the Maiden as she attempts to escape Dimitrescu Castle.
The publisher also confirmed that a second demo was scheduled to be released for all platforms this spring. Its release may be imminent, as a number of files relating to the new demo have reportedly been uploaded to the backend of the PlayStation Network.
According to MP1st, the files indicate that the “Resident Evil Village Gameplay Demo” will weigh in at approximately 10GB once it’s made available to download.
