Play­ers fig­ured out a way to reset the 60-minute timer on the final Res­i­dent Evil Vil­lage demo on Steam. The demo is still cur­rent­ly avail­able on plen­ty of plat­forms, with play­ers able to explore a tiny bit of the game’s creepy envi­ron­ment for the first time.

While most play­ers will take what­ev­er time they can get to check out the Cas­tle and Vil­lage halves of the demo, Steam users have cir­cum­vent­ed the timer so you can replay both for as long as you desire. A Steam forum user detailed a six-step guide to bring­ing the timer to zero, and it’s rather straight­for­ward. How­ev­er, an exter­nal util­i­ty called Steam Achieve­ment Man­ag­er (SAM) is need­ed to accom­plish this.

This is because Cap­com took the unlike­ly step of using Steam’s achieve­ments sys­tem to track the time you spend in the demo. The final Res­i­dent Evil Vil­lage demo is avail­able on most gam­ing plat­forms until May 9th. Like pre­vi­ous demos, this one was only sup­pose to run for 24 hours, but fans were none to pleased with this, prompt­ing Cap­com to extend it by a week. 

Res­i­dent Evil Vil­lage releas­es for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, Sta­dia, and PC on May 7th.
