Watch both Resident Evil Village demo playthroughs on PS5, Xbox Series X

Didn't get a chance to play? We've got you covered!

Resident Evil Village has offered up two demos — a Castle and Village demo — to both PlayStation and Xbox (alongside PC), and we’ve got gameplay from PS5 and Xbox Series X for you to view.

We played Village‘s Castle demo on PS5 and Village demo on Xbox Series X for you to compare.

You can check our our 20-minute run below. Those who’ve played Village‘s PS5-exclusive Maiden demo will certainly notice that a variety of locations have made a reappearance in this one.

The gameplay below is presented without commentary, though we’d be keen to hear what you think of it. There’s a lot of stalking going on, alongside cramped spaces, limited vision and the nefarious Duke. There’s a lot going on in a relatively short amount of time.

The Maiden demo is still available to those with a PS5 and a multiplayer demo for all platforms is coming in early May.

You can check our our 20-minute run below, though it sadly doesn’t feature ray-tracing as that’s turned off in the main menu by default and the setting wasn’t able to be turned on in the middle of play.

This is also a commentary-free playthrough, but we did manage to find three Goats of Warding in the process.

You’ve got a week to try out both demos for yourself on the platform of your choosing, though remember you have one hour of total playtime across both.

Resident Evil Village heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4 and PS5 from 7 May 2021.
