Resident Evil 4 Remake Gets Surprise Free Demo, Now Live On Xbox

Capcom has announced today as part of the latest "Capcom Spotlight" event for March 2023 that Resident Evil 4's remake has received a free demo on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S (along with other platforms), available today!

This trial version of the game is known as the "Chainsaw Demo", which allows you to play through an early part of the story (described as the bit where "Leon first enters a European village"). Unlike certain other Resident Evil demos, it also has no time limit whatsoever!

"This demo consists of a specially tuned version of the game's opening sequence and can be played repeatedly without time restrictions. With modernized gameplay, a reworked story, and vividly detailed graphics, you can relive the nightmare of survival horror."

Keep in mind that we've only got two weeks until the launch of Resident Evil 4's remake which is set to release on Friday, March 24th. The preload is also now available, even if you haven't purchased the game yet!
