The first demo for Res­i­dent Evil Vil­lage is already avail­able to try, but you’re going to need a PlaySta­tion 5 to get it. If you do own one, just head to the PlaySta­tion Store and grab the “Maid­en” demo. This is not a piece of the game, and does­n’t fea­ture the main game’s pro­tag­o­nist, Ethan Winters. 

Instead it’s giv­ing you a glimpse of what can be expect­ed from the full ver­sion, with­out spoil­ing any plot points. Pro­duc­er Pete Fabi­ano detailed the demo dur­ing the Res­i­dent Evil Show­case, stat­ing it’s a stand­alone and fea­tures the “Maid­en” as the main char­ac­ter. The demo does­n’t fea­ture any com­bat or the new block­ing sys­tem shown dur­ing the Vil­lage’s game­play demo. It’s also unclear if Lady Dim­itres­cu (Tall Vam­pire Lady) will make an appearance.

The demo will have ray trac­ing and 3D audio sup­port, that lat­ter requir­ing the use of head­phones. Play­ers will have to rely “sole­ly on their wits to make their escape,” instead of tra­di­tion­al com­bat. The demo can be found on the same page in the PlaySta­tion Store as the main game itself.

The Maid­en is one of two that will be avail­able. Fabi­ano said a sep­a­rate, new demo will be avail­able dur­ing the spring and won’t be a PS5-exclu­sive, but for all platforms.

There is also a free PS5 and PS4 avatar that can be claimed right now, thanks to a redeem code pro­vid­ed by Cap­com. The avatar fea­tures Lady Dim­itres­cu. Tweet­ed by Wario64, the code can be claimed on PS5, PS4 and PlaySta­tion’s web­site. You can see the code, below:

The show­case also revealed a release date for Res­i­dent Evil Vil­lage, as well as announc­ing the game will be com­ing to both Xbox One and PS4.
