It shouldn’t be surprising that on a platform as open as the PC folks would quickly figure out how to get around Capcom’s silly 60-minute timer. It’s cute that Capcom even included the timer on PC. At least it gave folks something to poke at if they were bored.

This is the demo that Capcom originally was only going to let folks play for 24 hours. However, after the internet collectively went “What..?” and yelled enough, Capcom relented and extended the demo for a week.

Actually resetting the timer in the demo does involve a few more steps than “turn off and turn on” so I think a lot of folks won’t bother with resetting the timer.

But if you want to play more of the Village demo on PC, here’s how as spotted by Eurogamer.

Resident Evil Village releases on May 7 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC.
