Launching after the Capcom Resident Evil showcase on Thursday, we’ve got our mitts on the Resident Evil Village – “Maiden” Demo. Since it is a PS5 exclusive, we thought it might be useful to do a playthrough of the short but sweet teaser. Running at about 16 odd minutes long, it’s a standalone side story set in the Resident Evil 8: Village setting (as opposed to being taken from the game itself).
As a demo, it does the job of getting us all hyped for the actual game. The RE Engine is continuing to shine and we really dig this first-person direction that the franchise is taking. The Resident Evil 2 remake was dope and all, Nemesis was…a thing but we love a bit of pure survival horror.
What does the demo tell us about the game? Well, check out our thoughts, but we are going to go with one word; Vampires. Maybe two words; Tall Vampires.
Are you excited by this Resident Evil Village Maiden demo? Wish they had brought it out on more than one platform? Why not sound off in the comments section? We’d love to hear from you.
