Capcom just released the demo for its Resident Evil 4 remake, after promising he would come back in February. It’s called Chainsaw Demo, which is a great name for a demo, and it’s probably named in honor of the gunny-sack-wearing bad guy who attacks old pal Leon with a chainsaw.
As it should, the Chainsaw demo has this infamous early encounter at its core. The approximately hour long demo starts at the very beginning of the game and runs up to this village where all the ganados break out to get Leon on a spit fork. I played for a bit, got totally ripped up by the aforementioned burlap boy, and finished the game.
I can confirm that it definitely looks good and that these very early hours of the game don’t offer much deviation from the original in terms of moment-to-moment events. Our preview tread the same ground and has much more to say in this regard. I’m one of the seemingly very few who don’t have a great deal of affection for Resident Evil 4; It’s been over 10 years since I last played it, but it now feels like a modern horror game, just like the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes.
Graphics options are plentiful and I didn’t have any hiccups playing the demo. Here are the notable options:
- 120fps are supported
- FSR is supported
- Net, rain and shade quality can be switched
- Graphical dismemberment can be toggled on and off
- The number of persistent corpses can be adjusted
- Motion blur can be turned off
- Lens flare can be turned off
The demo is available forever, so there’s no rush to play it before Resident Evil 4 releases (again) on March 24th. There’s also no time limit: it’s just a tiny part of the game, but you can play it as many times as you want.
