Please mark posts about the demo as spoilers and try to keep details out of the post title. Also try to refrain from discussing it in threads where it is not the topic.

This is to be mindful of that many fans choose not to engage with demos to keep their experience more fresh, and because there will likely be a population of users who want to play the demo but may not be able to due to the limited accessibility.

Thank you.

So we can play only one time 30 mins? Or is it that the demo ends after 30 mins and we can restart demo again from scratch?

ID: gux3d0j

You only get 30 minutes, you can play again but your minutes will run out

ID: gux48ws

I can't play it again, all I get is trailer and buy now.

ID: gux8je7

No playing again. One and done.

I wanna be scared by RE8 when it comes out. Demos have a way of cheapening the scare because at some areas you know whats coming. Ive been trying to avoid demo clips and spoilers so thanks for the visibility on this

ID: gux64a0

I played it and no spoilers but i don’t think the scares will be cheapen. The demo is a lot of exploration mostly

I really loved the demo. The village looked beautiful and I’m really interested in seeing the rest of the folklore the townspeople have. I’m liking Ethan’s character a lot.

Is there a second demo?

ID: guw45n3

30 minute timed Village Demo going live at 5PM PST/8PM EST tonight! It is active for only 8 hours and is only for PS4/PS5

Next week on the 24th, It is the same situation as above however it will be a new demo of the Castle!

Full 1 Hour Demo launches on PS, Xbox, Steam, and Stadia on May 1st

ID: gux5myg

At least the few people that have stadia will be able to play the demo on may 1st.

is the demo the first part of the game or just another objective but in the same village area?

ID: gux08n2

My guess is the first demo will probably be very early game, similar to the RE2 and 3 remake demos

ID: guxbb0h

I thought they said maiden was not in the game? I could be mistaken tho

Well, I'm an idiot. I spent 25 minutes searching for the two carvings for the castle door because I thought the map in the church was telling me to look for the second carving in the house with the locked cupboard. Then I realized there was a field full of werewolves. And my time ran out. I waited all day for this.

I fucking loved the demo. Can't wait for the real game.

ID: gux4hbj

I really enjoyed it too. It might just be me but I feel Ethan talks too much haha. And his voice feels odd to me for some reason.

ID: gux4wib

They’re definitely looking to have Ethan be more of a character this time around than a self insert. It’s the same VA as 7 tho

ID: gux7014

You guys could hear Ethan? He had no voice on my demo on Ps5

ID: gux9bco

Hell yeah I just played it. I'm so pumped for this game. That was a quick tease that got me even more excited.

ID: gux554i

I liked it too but there was barely any gameplay. You kind of just walked around a small section of the village and a lot of the demo was just cutscenes. You didn’t even really get to fight any monsters outside of the two lycans that you didn’t even have enough ammo to kill. Still pumped for the game but it feels weird that this is called a “Gameplay Demo”

ID: gux5ef0

There was a shotgun if you didn't find it to kill the lycans.

ID: gux86na

I used the mom a to kill three of them then the shotgun and handgun to kill the other two. You can find extra ammo for both guns and you can also make some handgun ammo.

ID: guxaz2j

I fought 5...?

Um quick question but my demo still has 16 hours before I can play but it seems that people are playing it wouldn't it be relatively synced regardless of time zone?

ID: gux66zx

Are you in north america

ID: gux692c

Australia, that why?

10 : Anonymous2021/04/18 00:55 ID: gux5t4j

I played the demo & does everyone else really hate that the cutscenes are added to the 30 minutes? Like damn at least stop the clock for them

The clock also kept running when I was at the pause screen & had to take the quickest piss of my life lmaooooo

ID: guxafvh

I hated it.. not the game.. but they way they did the demo. Honestly it makes me want to buy it less.

No idea what's going on. Limited time and for random bullshit. And you can't even try again. I couldn't complete it. But I couldn't try again. Wtf. If I don't find the keys fast enough I couldn't play. Fuck that. Shitty advertising. It's just infuriating

Not to mention I had to pee so I wasted minutes in a pause menu.

ID: gux7vr0

Yeah this exact thing has made me decide to not do any of the other demos, just going to wait for the game. That was incredibly frustrating for me tbh. I've been looking forward to this for a while and it actually made me immediately want to go back to playing the game I am currently playing instead of interesting me more in RE8.

ID: guxbx9z

Had to quickly rush thru every house cause the 30 mins was making me panic. Had no idea there was a shotgun in the demo

ID: gux8cgj

I started to skip them because it got annoying when there were pauses every few steps to do things like "

there's our way out let me point to the window"Of course, skipping that one meant I missed something somewhat important but figured was coming anyway Lol

I got just up to the gates where I assume it would end, fiddled to put the key items in, and it abruptly ended before I could finish. Does anything happen after it unlocks or does it just end there anyway?

I was so close! Lol I like exploring nooks and crannies too much apparently.

These demos are fucking stupid.

ID: gux9g0b

I ended there as well. I was rushing through the last 5 minutes I had and I got one in the gate but it ended before I could get the other one in.

ID: gux909x

I don't see what's stupid about a 30-minute timer. You got a taste of what the game is like, that's exactly what a demo is supposed to do. It's not supposed to be comprehensive i--- that's what the full game is for.

The 8-hour window thing is kinda weird though.

11 : Anonymous2021/04/18 00:41 ID: gux4erf

Maybe im just not used to it, but the field of view seems mega narrow. Anyone else feeling that?

ID: gux54dq

Got some mad motion sickness from this demo. 30 minutes might be my limit.

ID: gux5ywi

Turning off the control acceleration in the settings helped me tremendously.

12 : Anonymous2021/04/18 01:17 ID: gux8bj1

Loved the demo, anybody think the camera and aiming seemed a little floaty? Didn't mess with the settings, didnt want to use my time on that lol

ID: gux8tsu

Yeah I felt the same about it. Got a few minutes into the demo and then saw the timer didn’t stop while it was paused and gave up trying to mess around with things. Definitely need to turn aim acceleration off and tweak the other options for the real game. The demo was excellent though IMO. I didn’t mind that there were a bunch of cutscenes because I found them really enjoyable and the graphics quality during them was incredible. I noticed some pop in while running around. I was hoping ps5 era was gonna be the end of that but oh well.

ID: gux9egs

There's camera acceleration but you can turn it off

13 : Anonymous2021/04/18 01:13 ID: gux7yn4

Anybody know if we can delete our data and restart it?

14 : Anonymous2021/04/18 01:19 ID: gux8i6b

Demo was cool but the 30 minute time limit made me really panicky with changing settings. Time wasn't paused when the game was paused so I didn't want to waste time changing to frame rate mode or putting on subtitles which I woulda preferred. I guess I know for next time where to look.

ID: gux9oob

My subtitles were already on for the demo. Just played my 30 minutes.

ID: guxah81

Weird. Mine were defaulted to off. What platform?

15 : Anonymous2021/04/18 01:52 ID: guxbubf

I can’t put the keys down for the truck and am stuck looking at the keys

ID: guxdlx8

Open them. Rotate the keys and there's a screwdriver as well

16 : Anonymous2021/04/18 01:57 ID: guxcbpe

It’s been a while since I’ve played an RE game so maybe I could just be ass, but did anyone else get absolutely dumpstered by the enemies? Like I wasted most my ammo on the first like 3 you find, then after you go in the little shack like 6 spawn in and there was just nothing I could do.

I know RE is all about survival aspects and conservationist resources but my god was this rough. I was hitting heads to and felt like each guy ranked a clip and a half.

17 : Anonymous2021/04/18 01:28 ID: gux9er0

Preface: Coming from someone who has played every RE except the CV Gun Survivor.

Maybe it's just me, and maybe it's a result of feverishly playing RE2&3 Remakes, but the more I see (and play) of RE8 the less I'm excited for it.

The story seems to be taken all sorts of strange twists and turns that I can't really get on board with.

This setting, though nice to look at, seems out of place with what we've most recently been playing.

I played on PS5 and also think that RE7, 2&3 Remake looked better on PS4 Pro than the demo looked on PS5. The character models look a bit janky and the animations are a bit off.

I've got it pre-ordered, I'm going to play it, I'm just not overly enthusiastic about this entry.

ID: guxbjcm

Everything looks very muddy up close. It's strange.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why they have these bulky ass flour bags you break open instead of the boxes.

On ps5 with RT it TANKED framerates. Why even bother at all especially if it looks like ass particle effects. RE4 boxes were decent enough.

And funny, in one of the shacks, there are wooden boxes much like the og crates. You can't break them though! Who designed that?

18 : Anonymous2021/04/18 01:25 ID: gux96f9

Shooting felt really bad ngl. Didn’t want to waste my time messing with settings since time was limited, but really hoping some settings can be tweaked to make it feel better.

20 : Anonymous2021/04/18 02:05 ID: guxd64n

I don't usually set the brightness on my HDR the way a game asks. I think I set it too dark, I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how to fix it in settings, but there is no setting to recalibrate.
