What's in the Resident Evil Village Castle Demo?
Basically, players will be able to explore the halls of Castle Dimitrescu, where players will be able to encounter both Alcina Dimitrescu and her blood-hungry daughters. As for what to expect from the castle, Kanda had this to say:
When you first step into the castle, you may immediately feel the contrast between the decrepit village of the first early access experience to its regal interior. One of the major motifs of this area, and the game in general, was creating environments filled with beauty. When players aren’t running for their lives, we wanted to create a setting that they could enjoy by venturing through and slowly taking in all the sights and scenes. Of course, every picture of beauty hides a face of terror. Players may also find themselves beneath the splendor in an underground prison, tiptoeing past cold cellar bars that offer a sharp juxtaposition to the warmth found up above.
For those who are trying the demo on the PS5, players will be able to walk through the environments with an extra level of immersion through 3D audio, ray tracing, and adaptive triggers that will give a feeling of extra weight to the weapons that you'll be using.
For those ready to brave the latest Resident Evil, the latest demo will release tomorrow at 5:00 PM PT, with the full demo combining both the Village and Castle demos available on May 1, which will be available on all platforms the game is releasing on, making it the first demo available outside of PlayStation consoles. Resident Evil Village will be released on May 7, 2021, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia.
