Maiden. Everything offered by the PS5 exclusive Resident Evil VIllage demo
Maiden is the exclusive demo of Resident Evil VIllage for PS5 users, and it is available now. In this report we tell you everything it hides, and we show you the full gameplay of the demo, which was one of Capcom’s announcements in Resident Evil Showcase,
Yesterday Resident Evil 8 Showcase was held, a broadcast in which, among other details, new gameplay of Resident Evil 8 was shown, the game release date -RE8 will arrive on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X and PC on May 7th-, the editions that will be put on sale … and an exclusive demo.
The demo in question is titled Maiden (Maiden) and is available for free download via the PS Store for all PS5 users. We have already had the opportunity to pass this small game sequence, and we will tell you some details, in case you have not been able to play.
We also offer you the full demo gameplay, in which you can discover its wonderful setting, and some nod to previous installments.
Who stars in the demo?
Neither Ethan Winters nor Chris Redfield, the protagonist of the game is a maiden (a virgin) as her name suggests. From Capcom it has already been clarified that this demo does not take place at the same moment of the game, although some characters and locations coincide.
Besides the maiden we control, Resident Evil 8 Village introduces us to two characters that will have more relevance in the adventure. One of them is Lady Dimitrescu (the gigantic vampire who has caused a sensation in the networks for her attractiveness).
The other important character in the demo is one of his daughters, who also acts as a vampire, with powers that have reminded us of Marguerite Baker from Resident Evil 7, because it is capable of materializing from a cloud of insects.
Where does Maiden take place?
Maiden takes place in the castle that has already been shown in the trailers. We have to go through different rooms, from the dungeons, where we meet some victims, to the main entrance. This demo has his own argument, narrated through a series of documents that are scattered around the stage.
The reason why the maiden appears in the castle dungeons is related to Dimitrescu’s fondness for wine. There is a very special vintage, which is not made from grapes. So our goal is to escape before we become “dinner.”
How long is this Resident Evil 8 test?
The Resident Evil 8 Maiden demo can be finished in 20 minutes having seen it all. In this case there are no special conditions (remember the demo of Resident Evil 2 Remake that could only be played “one round”), but it is shorter than the demos that were published for RE 7.
Will there be a demo on other platforms?
Indeed, in this case we have been able to play an exclusive PS5 demo, but the rest of the systems will receive new demos before launch, on May 7. Remember that before the release of Resident
How is the gameplay of the demo?
Maiden does not have combat sequences, it is a test dedicated, above all, to exploring a part of the castle, and enjoy the great atmosphere. There is a little puzzle, but it is not difficult … we can only get stuck at some point if we do not find the exit in one of the rooms.
RE 8 Village will arrive next May. It can now be reserved in any of the special editions, including a bundle with RE VII. And if you’ve been lucky enough to get the beta, at the end of January you will be able to try RE: VERSE, the multiplayer that will be free if you have RE Village.
