Resident Evil Village’s ‘Maiden Game :If you’ve got PlayStation 5, you probably know that there’s not much to play right now – especially if you’ve already liked Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls and Astro’s Playroom. But here’s something (very briefly) up to you: Now you can download the Resident Evil Village “Maiden” demo before the May 7 release date of the entire game. It was not previously available in the PS Store, but it is now for about an hour. On the PlayStation Store on my PS5, the game was pictured front and center for me in the “What’s Hot” section, and I was able to start the download with a couple button presses. But if you’re away from your PS5 and want to download the demo remotely then it’s ready to play later, there are some ways to go about it.
If you’re using a browser, here’s a link to Maiden’s listing on the PlayStation Store, where you should be able to add the game to your library.
If you’re using the PlayStation mobile app, tap on the magnifying glass at the bottom of the screen and search for “maiden”. For me, Medan was the fourth search result. Tap on it, and you should be able to start the download from there.
On the mobile app, you can also access the MainDen page from the Resident Evil Village listing, tapping the box above the preorder button, and select Madden from the list of Village Editions.
The Maiden Resident Evil Village has a different feel, where you are better known as a character, known as a “maiden” rather than Ethan Winters, the Village’s protagonist. If you want to know more about the demo before downloading, check out this post on the PlayStation blog.
Resident Evil Village will launch on 7 May on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One and PC. Capcom says that a “multiplayer demo” for the game will be available this spring.
