Capcom releases the Resident Evil 8 Village demo for download: The trial version is available exclusively for PlayStation 5. After technical difficulties, the demo is now also available on the German PSN. Note that you need a PS Plus membership to access the trial version. The Maiden demo is an experience that is independent of the main game – a kind of short story set in the world of Resident Evil 8 Village. You can find impressions from the test version in a video at this link.
In a current entry in PlayStation Blog says producer Peter Fabiano a little closer to the tech of Resident Evil 8 Village – and explains how the team used the technical advantages of the PS5. "You will be able to enjoy the PS5's ray tracing and 3D audio," comments the producer, adding that the demo is designed to take full advantage of the technology that will be included in the main game. For the demo and the main game of Resident Evil 8 Village, the goal was to "develop a game with beautiful graphics, high frame rates and short loading times". (buy now € 69.99 )

The producer continues: "Thanks to the technology we mentioned in the showcase, the director was able to fully realize his vision of how the game should play and the art director was able to fully realize his vision of what the game should look like." This should be reflected in the demo as well as in the full version in the environments, objects and character models.
