Update: Meanwhile the demo for Resident Evil Village is also in the German PSN for PS5 as download ready. You can find the test version on the console by searching for "Maiden". Note that you need a PS Plus membership to download the demo.
Original message: Actually, the happy owners of a PS5, which has not yet found a home in too many living rooms due to delivery problems anyway, should have been playing for several hours in the demo called "The Maiden" for Resident Evil Village or Resident Evil 8. Capcom revealed a lot of new information about the horror title yesterday as part of the so-called Resident Evil Showcase, including about the multiplayer mode. We also know the release date now, on May 7, 2021 the time has come.

However, not only because of the low Playstation 5 distribution, many people cannot start the demo yet. Contrary to promises to the contrary, it is not yet available in Germany. Why is that? Capcom has now done this in a statement on Twitter voiced.
"Due to technical issues, the Maiden demo is for Resident Evil Village (buy now € 69.99 ) currently not yet available in the German PSN store. We are working on making the demo available to you as soon as possible during the day. As soon as that is the case, you will find out here! "
There is no malicious will behind this, but a technical problem that should be resolved on January 22nd.
Resident Evil Village connects directly to the events of Resident Evil 7 and puts us again in the horror-tested shoes of protagonist Ethan Winters. The demo, which you can also watch in full in the video, is not an excerpt from the main game, but a specially made chapter in which we have to face the evil around us without weapons instead of fighting. From an as yet unknown date in February, players on PC, Xbox Series X, PS4 and Xbox One will also be able to try the demo.

So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. You can support us as a PC Games supporter so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form for free, without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.
