A playable demo for Resident Evil 4 Remake is available now. Capcom calls it the Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Demo, and it’s available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.

During Capcom’s Spotlight stream event for March 9, 2023, producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said that the demo has no time limit, which means players can play it as long as they like while they wait for the full game’s release date on March 24, 2023.

The demo is set during the beginning of the game, where former rookie cop Leon  S. Kennedy infiltrates a mysterious village full of hostile Ganados. The demo will contain some of the now-iconic opening encounters of Resident Evil 4, including his first brush with the Chainsaw Ganado mini-boss. Players can expect to see the game’s graphical updates from the 2005 original, as well as see updated mechanics and story moments.

Resident Evil 4 Remake will come to the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC on March 24, 2023, with a playable demo available now. The PS5 version will have a VR mode exclusive to the PSVR 2 hardware suite. The playable demo is available now. Earlier complaints about rain effects will be addressed using a day-one patch.
