Capcom simply launched the demo for its Resident Evil 4 remake, after promising it was coming again in February. It is referred to as the Chainsaw Demo, which is a superb identify for a demo, and is presumably named in honour of the burlap bag-wearing baddie who assaults ol’ mate Leon with a chainsaw.

Because it ought to, the Chainsaw Demo has that notorious early encounter as its centrepiece. The roughly one hour demo begins on the game’s very starting and runs till that village hoedown with all of the ganados out to get Leon on a pithcfork. I performed for a bit, received completely ripped up by the aforementioned burlap boy, and closed the game. 

I can verify that it undoubtedly appears the half, and that these very early hours of the game provide no enormous deviations from the unique so far as moment-to-moment occurrences go. Our preview treads the identical floor and has much more to say in that regard. I am among the many seemingly only a few with no nice affection for Resident Evil 4; it has been over 10 years since I final performed it, but it surely seems like a contemporary horror game now, identical to the Resident Evil 2 and three’s remakes did.

Graphics choices are considerable, and I skilled no hiccups taking part in the demo. Listed below are the noteworthy choices:

  •  120fps is supported 
  •  FSR is supported 
  •  Mesh, rain, shadow high quality may be toggled 
  •  Graphic dismemberment may be turned on and off 
  •  The quantity of persistent corpses may be adjusted 
  •  Movement blur may be turned off 
  •  Lens flare may be turned off 

The demo is out there perpetually, so there isn’t any rush to play it earlier than Resident Evil 4 releases (once more) on March 24. It additionally notably has no time restrict: it is solely a tiny slice of the game, however you possibly can play it as a lot as you need.
