Resident Evil 4 remake playable demo available now


A playable demo for the Resident Evil 4 remake is now available, Capcom and game producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi announced Thursday during the Capcom Spotlight livestream. Called the “Chainsaw Demo,” the preview of Resident Evil

4 will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X.

Unlike recent Resident Evil game demos, the Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Demo won’t have a time limit. It can be downloaded and played as many times as you want, Hirabayashi said.

The demo is set during the opening portion of Resident Evil 4

, where Leon S. Kennedy faces an angry mob of Plagas-infested villagers — including a sack-wearing, chainsaw wielding bad guy who’s keen on sawing Leon in half. According to the Chainsaw Demo’s official description, it’s a “specially tuned version of the game’s opening sequence.” It should be a great place to hone your knife-parrying skills before the full game launches on March 23.

Resident Evil 4’s Chainsaw Demo is available to download now from the PlayStation Store, Steam, and Xbox Games Store.
