Resident Evil Village demo is now playable in a web browser
Capcom has decided to make it much easier to try and play Resident Evil Village by offering access to the demo through your web browser.
Thanks to an agreement with Google Stadia, the gameplay demo is now accessible with a single click in the browser of your choice. A connection speed check will then be performed before the game starts streaming and you can start playing. No registration is required and you can use a keyboard and mouse or gamepad for input.
Capcom says the demo will work on Windows 10 or 11, macOS 11, Android 11, or iOS 14.3 or later, and recommends the latest version of Chrome browser for all platforms except iOS where Safari is used. Compatible controllers include the PlayStation DualShock 4 and the Xbox One controller, which can also be used with Android and iOS devices via Bluetooth.
When first released in April last year, the demo required download and installation, but Capcom also limited playtime to 60 minutes. For this streaming version of the demo, the time limit has been removed and you can play as long as you want. However, there’s no save feature, no HDR, and the highest resolution setting is 1080p. Of course, you will also need a constant internet connection to keep the demo running.
