The Resident Evil 4 remake demo is worth a discussion, and should be here soon. Usually, when a new Resident Evil game is about to be released, Capcom allows gamers to play a short demo version of it, showing a snippet of the game.

A demo is a great way to advertise the game and make gamers interested in it even more. So, we expect to see some real action in the demo of the upcoming game, after it was confirmed in a recent PlayStation conference.

When is the Resident Evil 4 remake demo release date?

Unfortunately, right now there is no information about the Resident Evil 4 remake demo release date or how long it will be. Also, we can’t say for sure what kind of content will be presented in this demo when it pops up. The demo was announced at the PlayStation State of Play event in February 2023, but since then Capcom hasn't revealed anything else.

At the same time, the game will be released on March 24, and with all the gameplay trailers we’ve seen so far, we can suggest what will be included in this demo.


In the most recent gameplay trailer, Capcom showed us the famous last stand of Leon and Luis in the wooden house, a church filled with various puzzles and Ganados, and of course, the fight in the first village. So, we will likely see some of these scenarios in the demo. It would be a breath of fresh air to try them before the game comes out. Expect it to be around an hour long, to give players a taste of what to expect!
