It looks like the Resident Evil 4 remake will be getting a demo today, expected to be announced at the Capcom Spotlight event later after viewers started spotting premature adverts for the trial version during Twitch streams. [Updated]

The Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Demo is available to download on Xbox Series X|S now. Capcom says this demo "consists of a specially tuned version of the game's opening sequence and can be played repeatedly without time restrictions."

Survival is just the beginning.

Experience a taste of Resident Evil 4, a reimagining of the original game released in 2005.

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.

Original Story:
Resident Evil 4 is the latest of Capcom's classic survival horror games to get the remake treatment, with Leon's legendary 2005 adventure looking better than ever in 2023. Now, it seems like you'll have a chance to check it out for yourself ahead of the remake's launch later this month, with a demo expected to hit the Xbox store today after Twitch ads for the game ending with the line "demo available now" seemingly rolled out early.

The Capcom Spotlight event later today is where we expect to have the RE4 demo officially confirmed and, by the sounds of things, released during or right after the broadcast. As with previous Resi remakes, RE4 aims to stay true to the original while expanding and evolving the experience in new ways, so it'll be interesting to see how much of that we get to experience in the demo version, and indeed in the full game when it releases in a couple of weeks.

Resident Evil 4 launches for Xbox Series X|S on March 24th. Will you be checking out the demo to see how much Capcom's classic has changed? Let us know!
