New demo: Just as predicted, there will be a new 60-minute long demo for Resident Evil 8 Village from May 1st, 2021. This is available on all platforms of the Xbox, PlayStation and PC. A PlayStation Early Access demo will follow later, which you can test for 8 hours. You can download it from now on.


New game mode: The Leaks about the new game mode were true, albeit it turned out differently than expected. This Resident Evil 8 mode is called "Mercenaries" and is very reminiscent of Call of Duty Zombies. You have to survive various waves of enemies, then improve your equipment and face even more waves.

You will also find abilities during a round that can increase your weapon damage or improve stamina, for example. As it became known, this mode is free and available from day one after the release of Resident Evil 8 Village.
