Is There a Resident Evil 4 Remake Demo?


Resident Evil 4 Remake is one of the most anticipated video game releases of 2023. Fans are curious if they'll be able to get their hands on a demo before buying the game in March.

Resident Evil 4 Remake follows Leon S. Kennedy as he's matured since the Raccoon City incident working as a US Agent tasked with rescuing Ashley Graham, the U.S. president's daughter, who's been abducted by a cult in Spain. Leon travels to the unnamed village encountering the Los Illuminados in a new survival horror experience in the franchise. The original is widely considered a groundbreaking title and spawned a new era in the genre much as Resident Evil 7 did in 2017.

This is the third Resident Evil remake released in the last four years following 2019 and 2020's Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake respectively. Here's everything you need to know about a potential demo making its way to online stores before release.

Is There a Resident Evil 4 Remake Demo?

There's been no confirmation of a Resident Evil 4 Remake demo coming to PlayStation, Xbox or PC, as of writing. Though, there's still hope that Capcom will release some sort of demo in the buildup.

Capcom released a Resident Evil 2 Remake demo, the "R.P.D. Demo," and a Resident Evil 3 Remake demo titled "Raccoon City Demo." The RE2 Remake demo was released in Dec. 2019, 11 months after the game was released, but the RE3 Remake demo was released two weeks before that game was released. So, there's still some hope that Capcom might release a teaser for players to try out.

Capcom debuted a gameplay demo of Resident Evil 4 Remake showcasing the game's fateful encounter at the beginning between Leon, hordes of villagers and the Chainsaw Man. So, perhaps Capcom offers this scenario up as a brief demo for RE fans before jumping into purchasing the title.

Resident Evil 4 Remake launches March 24 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
