The Resident Evil Castle Demo is the next big reveal from Capcom, offering fans another chance at experiencing the new Village experience.

Resident Evil Village is scheduled to launch in May, and the development team behind the anticipated launch have put together a new timed trial.

The good news is that everyone will be able to try out the new content before the game’s final release.

Capcom has confirmed that both the Village and Castle Demo will be available to play across PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC in May.

But before that, gamers on PlayStation consoles get to try things out, with the Castle Demo going live today.

Publisher Capcom has confirmed that this weekend’s trial will only be available on PlayStation consoles and only for a very limited time.

Sony adds: “If you’re looking to step into the halls of Castle Dimitrescu, you’re in for a treat this weekend.

“PlayStation players will get early access to the terrifying yet beautiful inner workings of the castle, the stronghold of the illustrious Alcina Dimitrescu and her bloodthirsty daughters.

“It’s not available to play just yet, but you can go to the PlayStation Store to pre-download the Resident Evil Village Gameplay Demo in anticipation.

“To clear up any confusion, you just have to download that one demo. Everything will be automatically available to play through the Gameplay Demo during the designated times.

When you first step into the castle, you may immediately feel the contrast between the decrepit village of the first early access experience to its regal interior.

“One of the major motifs of this area, and the game in general, was creating environments filled with beauty.

“When players aren’t running for their lives, we wanted to create a setting that they could enjoy by venturing through and slowly taking in all the sights and scenes. Of course, every picture of beauty hides a face of terror.

“Players may also find themselves beneath the splendour in an underground prison, tiptoeing past cold cellar bars that offer a sharp juxtaposition to the warmth found up above.

The Resident Evil Castle Demo will be available to play for 30-minutes on April 24 in the United States, at 5pm PST.

And then the same demo will be available to play in the UK on April 25, at 6pm BST on the same consoles.

Capcom has confirmed that all platforms will be getting access to the two combined Resident Evil demos on May 1 in the United States and May 2 in the UK.

The Resident Evil Demo start time has been set for 5pm PST in the US and 1am BST in the UK.

“The final demo period will give you a total of 60 minutes to explore both the village and castle, and you’re free to use those 60 minutes however you wish.

“How much time will you spend seeking answers in the village, and how long will you brave the castle’s corridors to uncover its dark secrets?”

Resident Evil fans are counting down to the start of the Re:Verse open beta on PlayStation and Xbox.

The Resident Evil Village multiplayer spinoff is available to anybody who picks up a copy of the upcoming survival horror sequel.

Described as a “fight to the death that all Resident Evil fans can enjoy”, Re:Verse is an online multiplayer spinoff for 4-6 players.

With the release date creeping ever closer, fans can try the game early by taking part in the limited time open beta.

The Resident Evil Re:Verse open beta has an April 21 release date and a 7am BST launch time for fans living in the UK.

Available on PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC via Steam, the beta ends just 24-hours later.

If you don’t want to miss a second of the action, PS4 fans can download the open beta from the PlayStation Store right now. Xbox fans can also pre-load the beta by visiting the Xbox website.

While the beta is open to all players, even without a pre-order, there are a couple of things worth remembering if you want to take part.

Resident Evil fans will need to have a CAPCOM ID to access the open beta, and will also need to own supported hardware – which goes without saying.

While the full game will require PS Plus and Xbox Live, it looks like the open beta doesn’t have the same restrictions.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Resident Evil Re:Verse, Capcom explains more: “In Resident Evil Re:Verse you can test your skills against other players in four to six-person survival horror revenge matches.

“Play as beloved characters from the Resident Evil series and turn the tides of battle with powerful bioweapons.”

The game’s five minute deathmatches feature a unique twist, as defeated players return as Bioweapons.

“Take part in 5-minute Deathmatches, where the player with the most points wins! Use the weapons and items you find to take down even more powerful enemies!

“When your character is taken out, their body transforms into a powerful bioweapon which can be used against other players.

“Pick up multiple Virus Capsules to transform into even stronger bioweapons. Getting revenge with a bioweapon is also a great chance for more points!”

Resident Evil Village Demo release time: When can I play on PS4 and Xbox One?

It won’t be long before a slice of fans gets to start playing the new Resident Evil Village demo, with two new experiences set to land in April.

While not the easiest schedule to follow, the next Resident Evil Village demo release date has been set for April 17 and April 18.

However, publisher Capcom has confirmed that this weekend’s trial will only be available on PlayStation consoles and only for a very limited time.

This will be The Village demo, which included 30-minutes of gameplay and will only be available to download at a specific time.

A message from Sony explains: “The first demo period allows you to check out the snow-covered remnants of the titular village for 30 minutes, giving you a glimpse into the frost-capped remains of what once was, and perhaps giving you a taste of what the game’s combat has to offer.”

The Resident Evil Villa Demo release date for PS4 and PS5 has been scheduled for April 17 at 5pm PST in the United States.

In the UK, the same Resident Evil Village Demo will be available to play on April 18, starting at 6pm BST.

This will be followed by a second playable demo focused on the Resident Evil Castle, which will be available to play on PS4 and PS5 consoles next week.

Sony adds: “The second demo period will drop you into the halls of Castle Dimitrescu where you’ll be given a separate 30-minute experience that is sure to be a bloody good time. Unlike the expansive village, the castle is full of narrow hallways and cramped corridors that make it difficult to tell what could be around each corner.”

The Resident Evil Castle Demo will be available to play for 30-minutes on April 24 in the United States, at 5pm PST.

And then the same demo will be available to play in the UK on April 25, at 6pm BST on the same consoles.

WHEN CAN I PLAY RESIDENT EVIL VILLAGE DEMO ON XBOX?

Capcom has confirmed that all platforms will be getting access to the two combined Resident Evil demos on May 1 in the United States and May 2 in the UK.

The Resident Evil Demo start time has been set for 5pm PST in the US and 1am BST in the UK.

“The final demo period will give you a total of 60 minutes to explore both the village and castle, and you’re free to use those 60 minutes however you wish.

“How much time will you spend seeking answers in the village, and how long will you brave the castle’s corridors to uncover its dark secrets?

That part’s up to you, but we encourage you to share your experience playing and speculate on what secrets the full game holds.”

It’s a pretty confusing mix of dates and times to follow for gamers across platforms, so here’s a final recap:

Resident Evil Village Demo – PS4 and PS5 Only – April 17 US and April 18 UK.

Resident Evil Castle Demo – PS4 and PS5 Only – April 24 US and April 25 UK.

Resident Evil Combined Demo – All Platforms – May 1 US and May 2 UK.

And as mentioned above, all demos will be available to play for a just short amount of time. The first two on PlayStation consoles will offer 30 minutes each, while the final open platform demo will be a combined 60 minutes.

‘I’m shocked every time’: Chelsea owner Abramovich blasts ‘evil’ antisemitism & racism, lauds ‘huge potential’ of women's football

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has opened up on his enduring passion for the club, blasting discrimination while lavishing praise on the Blues’ women’s team and admitting that he has never wanted to have a “public profile”.

Discussing his acquisition of the English Premier League giants for around $ 194 million in 2002, Abramovich has spoken of his thrill at the move that transformed English football and pointed to the surprise factor of the game as the key reason for his enduring enthusiasm.

Abramovich oversaw the creation of the club’s women’s team in the second year of his tenure, with the Russian billionaire providing a base at the overhauled Cobham training base, a separate stadium and travel to international matches for the female side.

“I think investment pays off,” Abramovich told Forbes, praising Emma Hayes, the long-serving coach of the Women’s Super League champions, as “remarkable”.

“I think their success demonstrates what can be achieved when you dedicate resources and the right leadership.

“I see no reason why clubs wouldn’t want to support women’s football and provide the best possible opportunity for them to succeed.

“For me, this is both about the principle, but, also, women’s football has huge potential. If women’s football received the same level as support as men’s football, the sport would obviously be equally successful on the business side.”

Abramovich described the women’s side as “critical” to Chelsea, and reaffirmed his determined to continue to oversee the club’s work in the community and against intolerance.

“Racism, antisemitism, this is all the same type of evil and should have no place on our world at this day and age,” the 54-year-old said.

“Every time I get sent examples of racist abuse that our players face, I am shocked. It’s disgraceful that this is the reality for not just our players, but for anyone targeted by this sort of abuse.

“If we, as a club, can make a difference in this area, in fighting antisemitism, racism and promoting tolerance, I am determined to stand behind it and contribute in whatever way I can.”

“These are very, very big themes and they are very, very important. Things at that level require me to personally show that I am behind it and that I am accountable.”

Known for shunning the spotlight, Abramovich is enchanted by the absence of a “set formula for winning football matches.”

“It has never been my ambition to have a public profile,” he said. “It is not helpful to provide additional running commentary.

“A coach and his or her squad have to consider many factors when approaching each match.

“It’s like every few days is a new exam and the work you have put in gets evaluated. I enjoyed, and still enjoy, the unpredictability and seeing how each game plays out.”
