Is there a Resident Evil Village demo on the PS4?

April 2, 2021

We keep seeing more of Resident Evil Village but there’s been some confusion over its demos. Is there a PS4 demo for the game?

Today, IGN showed off five minutes of footage of Resident Evil Village running on a PS4 Pro.

The footage looks great, but some people are confused over where the game will be playable and if a demo exists on the PS4.

Luckily, I’ve got all the facts, so here’s everything you need to know about the Resident Evil Village demo on the PS4.

Resident Evil Village Demo PS4

Let’s clear everything up right now: currently, there is no Resident Evil Village PS4 or PS4 Pro demo. It’s a little curious why the footage was chosen to be shown off was from a PS4 Pro other than perhaps to show players what to expect from the game on last-generation hardware.


Not to worry though. While the Maiden demo was a PlayStation 5 exclusive, it seems like Capcom is interested in getting more demos to other platforms. in the future.

In January they tweeted, “The PlayStation 5 Maiden demo is now live! Don’t forget, a multiplatform demo is coming this spring.” It’s currently unclear if they’re planning on bringing over the Maiden demo to other platforms or if it’s going to be a new demo entirely.

Spring is officially in full swing so we can expect a demo announcement hopefully sometime soon.
