[Update]: Resident Evil Village has now been unleashed, and so far it's looking quite good!

If you're interesting in seeing just what Resident Evil Village has to offer and how it compares to its predecessors, you'll be happy to hear that Capcom will soon be launching a free gameplay demo. The demo will be going live at 5pm PST on May 1st, and will remain active until 5pm PST on May 9th.

Much like some of the previous Resident Evil demos, this one will also be time-limited. You will have a total of 60 minutes to roam across both the village and the castle, which if the Resident Evil 2 demo is any judge, should be ample time to thoroughly explore everything at a fairly leisurely pace.

Also, if you really do run out of time and you want to take the Resident Evil Village demo for another spin, you can simply create or log into a new Steam account and do it that way. So while the time limited is there to add a bit of extra pressure, I wouldn't worry too much about it ruining the experience.

You can learn more about Resident Evil Village, as well as check out the demo as soon as it goes live, by hopping over to Steam. Have fun!
