Resident Evil Village releases in May, PS5 exclusive demo out now

Resident Evil Village has been given an official release date, along with a multiplayer spin-off and PS5 exclusive demo.
Resident Evil Village releases in May, PS5 exclusive demo out now

Resident Evil Village will release on current and past generation consoles on 7th May 2021.

In a Resident Evil Showcase presentation, Capcom confirmed the release date and also announced a demo is available now exclusive to PlayStation 5.

While in the main game you’ll control Resident Evil 7 protagonist Ethan Winters, this demo sees you play as someone called the ‘Maiden’. The demo won’t feature any combat shown in the trailers, but revolves around escaping and finding a way out the castle.

Capcom also promised another demo would release on all platforms in the spring, which would be a separate experience.


Along with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, Resident Evil Village will also come to PS4 and Xbox One - with free upgrades offered to the respective next-gen version. 

Resident Evil Village will also be available in a digital Deluxe Edition, which features extra content including Resident Evil 7 inspired in-game items. A collector’s edition will also be available, with a giant figure of Chris Redfield. 

If that wasn’t enough, Resident Evil Village will also come packaged with newly announced (albeit leaked beforehand) multiplayer mode Resident Evil Re:Verse. This mode brings back iconic heroes and villains from the franchise, including Jill Valentine, Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield. 


Resident Evil Re:Verse will be free for anyone who purchases Resident Evil Village, much like the Resistance mode available alongside Resident Evil 3 remake. 

A bunch of gameplay for Resident Evil Village was shown off too in the presentation, showing witches, a massive ogre with a hammer, and the new merchant - a giant named ‘The Duke’. 

Resident Evil Village releases on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC on 7th May 2021.
