What you need to know about the Resident Evil Village Maiden demo

The demo is a stand-alone separate experience from the main game as it is a kind of short story set within the world of RE village.

The maiden

Maiden is not the name of any person rather it symbolizes a girl who trapped in Dimitrescu Castle. Rather than playing as Ethan and seeing a part of his story. This character is different from the Resident Evil Village main story. Both the maiden’s story and Ethan’s story will take place at different times.

The maiden demo is not included in the main story of Resident Evil Village. At first, Maiden is designed as a visual demo that will allow you to explore Dimitrescu Castle. But finally, it evolved to include a short story along with puzzle solving.

Resident Evil fans are familiar with the various castles that appear throughout the series. So they also feel very familiar with this new one too. The RE Village and Maiden took place in the same place but not at the same time. It left us somewhat bewildered whether the two would tied together somehow.
