Ahead of the release of Resident Evil Village Gold Edition on October 28th, a free demo is now available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, providing you with a free trial of the game for 60 minutes.

This means you can check out the new third-person mode for the main campaign if you want to, while other new features in the Gold Edition will include the Shadows of Rose story expansion and The Mercenaries Additional Orders.

If you already own Resident Evil Village and you're interested in getting access to the Gold Edition, it'll be available separately as the "Winters' Expansion" next week, which you can pre-order right now for £15.99 / $19.99 on the Xbox Store.

"This demo lets you experience a taste of the survival horror sensation, Resident Evil Village, as well as the Third Person Mode added in the Gold Edition, which brings a new perspective to the action. A time limit applies on how long you can play. Don't miss out!"
