Resident Evil Village PS5-Exclusive Beta Drops Today Alongside New Video

From a new trailer to impressive gameplay, Capcom is spreading that horror love with a ton of Resident Evil Village news! For those fans itching to get their hands on the newest title first, a PS5-exclusive beta goes live today with our first look at exactly what that will have to offer those brave enough to dive in. Don’t have a PS5? No worries! A different demo will be going live for all other platforms at a later date, but first, let’s take a look at what the new-gen experience has in store. 

In the PS5 demo, players won’t be assuming the role of Ethan Winters, instead, we will be filling the shoes of a character that goes by The Maiden. Check out our first look at the demo in the showcase’s video below:

The demo for the new generation of PlayStation systems is unique to the PS5, meaning the demo that other platform players play will be different. For this particular early access period, however, players will encounter a different kind of experience: No combat, no wares, just the one objective of escaping a deadly castle before it’s too late. 

Now that the showcase is a wrap, the PS5 demo is available now. For other platforms, Capcom also confirmed that a separate play period will be coming soon “sometime in Spring.” While not an exact date, it is nice to know that everyone will get a chance to get some hands-on time with the future of Resident Evil before it launches later this year.

As for the game itself, Resident Evil Village arrives on May 7, 2021 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
