Resident Evil Village Extended Final Demo Now Runs Week of May 1

Resident Evil Village

Capcom have announced they are extending the 60-minute Extended Final Demo for Resident Evil Village to one week.

As previously reported, the Resident Evil April Showcase revealed time-limited demos for Resident Evil Village. This limited time was to evoke the day of events Capcom would have planned, if not for the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. This included two demos; one set in the titular village, and another within the walls of Lady Dimitrescu’s castle.

Due to sheer demand (which some would consider further manufactured due to the limited time of the event), Capcom have announced more dates and times for the 60-minute Extended Final Demo. While originally intended to be a 24 hour window, players will now be able to experience it for one week.

The Extended Final Demo launches May 1st 5 p.m. PT, and will not be playable after May 9th, 5 p.m. PT.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

Experience survival horror like never before in the eighth major installment in the storied Resident Evil franchise – Resident Evil Village.

Set a few years after the horrifying events in the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again.


  • First-Person Action – Players will assume the role of Ethan Winters and experience every up-close battle and terrifying pursuit through a first-person perspective.
  • Familiar Faces and New Foes – Chris Redfield has typically been a hero in the Resident Evil series, but his appearance in Resident Evil Village seemingly shrouds him in sinister motives. A host of new adversaries inhabiting the enigmatic village will relentlessly hunt Ethan and hinder his every move as he attempts to make sense of the new nightmare he finds himself in.
  • A Living, Breathing Village – More than just a mysterious backdrop for the horrifying events that unfold in the game, the village is a character in its own right with mysteries for Ethan to uncover and terrors to escape from.

Resident Evil Village launches May 7th on Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will support upgrades to the next generation.
