Now you can play the Resident Evil Village’s ‘Maiden’ demo on the PS5


If you own a PlayStation 5, you probably know there isn't much to play at this point - especially if you've completed Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, and Astro's Playroom. But there is something to (briefly) help you out: You can now download the Resident Evil Village "Maiden" demo before the release date of the full game which was just announced May 7th. Originally not available on the PS Store, but it's been there for about an hour now.

On the PlayStation Store on my PS5, the games are displayed front and center in the "What's hot" section for me, and I can initiate the download with the press of a few buttons. But if you're not on the PS5 and want to download demos remotely so they're ready to play later, there are a few ways to do that too.

  • If you’re using a browser, here’s the 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 the magnifying glass at the bottom of the screen and search for “maiden.” For me, Maiden was the fourth search result. Tap on that, and you should be able to start the download from there.
  • On the mobile app, you can also access the Maiden page from the Resident Evil Village listing by tapping the box above the preorder button and selecting Maiden from the list of editions for Village.

Maiden is a separate experience from Resident Evil Village where you play a character known as the "girl" instead of the Village protagonist, Ethan Winters. If you want to learn more about demos before downloading, check out this post on the PlayStation Blog.

Resident Evil Village will launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and PC on May 7. Capcom says a “multiplatform demo” for the game will be available this spring.
