How long is the Resident Evil village demo?

Gameplay Demo You can try out the game yourself for 60 minutes! You can spend your whole time in either the village or the castle, or split it between the two! It's up to you. residentevil.comResident Evil Village | CAPCOM

Resident Evil Village launches this Friday, but you can explore a bit of the game right now in a limited-time demo that's available until May 9th. You're only supposed to be able to play the demo for a total of 60 minutes, but of course PC players have found a way around that already. Now you can play the demo over and over through this weekend if you really want to. Photo mode is time consuming, right?

This final demo for Resident Evil Village is the first that's been available on PC. It lets you explore some of the snowy village that protagonist Ethan Winters winds up in and Castle Dimitrescu above it. You can catch Matthew's thoughts on the Castle side of the demo down below from when it was available on the PS5. He also played the Village half prior to that.

If you're keen to try out both halves yourself, the demo is available over on Steam. Once you download and boot it up, you'll notice the timer ticking down in your pause menu showing how many minutes you have left to play. It does pause if you pull up your Steam overlay, by the by, but not while you're sitting around the in pause menu, I found.

Based on Matthew's time with separate halves of the demo, it sounds like 60 minutes probably is enough time to get through both areas if you'd like. If it's not though, some players have shared instructions on how to reset your timer. It requires clearing all of your progress, so that'll mean starting the demo from the beginning each time, mind.

The two demo sections may not really be all that long, but the timed aspect of it seemed a bit silly anyhow. If we're getting a limited section of the game to play, what's the harm in spending however long we like in it? If nothing else, I bet there are folks eager to wander around and take shots with the photo mode.

I am one of those folks. I wasted about five minutes looking at lacy curtains in each room.

The Village & Castle demo is available now through May 10th at 1am BST (May 9th at 5pm PDT). Resident Evil Village's full launch is this Friday, May 7th over on Steam.

With the extended time frame of playing the Resident Evil Village demo, you knew that some players would be looking for ways to get around the 60-minute time limit. Lo and behold, someone has found a way to reset the demo timer.

The demo communicates with Capcom’s servers with a countdown timer. Users on the Steam forums were able to identify and alter the files with a trainer to simply reset the timer.

Of course, Capcom caught wind of this, and took down the server to prevent players from further exploiting the hack. The results of this were predictable:

👨‍💻 The Resident Evil Village Gameplay Demo for PC included a countdown timer that some players bypassed in an attempt to access the content early. CAPCOM subsequently took down the server, leading to a broken demo and arguments in the reviews… pic.twitter.com/VZkk5T4sDX

Meanwhile, seeing as Village uses the RE Engine, you knew that someone was going to employ some of the modding techniques that we got with the Resident Evil 2 remake and Resident Evil 3. The modder known as Marcos certainly took advantage of it, bringing everyone’s favourite purple dinosaur into Village:

My time on the demo is over, but before i did it hahaha#VILLAGE #MODS #RE8 #barney pic.twitter.com/y8IiP4hrgV

Marcos wasn’t the only one to pull some trickery, as another modder, DarknessValtier, was able to get a third-person camera working for Village. Guess we’ll have to wait for the inevitable full game version for that one.

Some peoples asked me, modder will be make RE8 as third person camera? why not!? XD @MDenizGaming @MarcosRCRE @revilbr @ROEnetwork @jjfromroe @supermognon pic.twitter.com/uGlufPimSE

Resident Evil Village unleashes onto the masses May 7 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Google Stadia, and PC via Steam.
