Starting today, PlayStation 5 owners can get an exclusive preview of the Resident Evil Village castle area with the Maiden demo. This experience is standalone, but shows the stunning visuals and 3D audio that await in the main game. As the Maiden, players will have to rely solely on their wits to escape in this stressful demonstration, as they will have no way to fight or defend themselves. A new, separate demo for all platforms will be available later this spring (in the Northern Hemisphere).
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise, Capcom announced that Resident Evil Village will include access to a free multiplayer experience titled Resident Evil Re: Verse coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S players can access the game through backward compatibility.
