Resident Evil 4 'Chainsaw Demo' Out Now

Richard Walker

Capcom has announced that the Resident Evil 4 ‘Chainsaw Demo’ will be rolling out across all platforms later today, enabling you to sample the opening section of the game as many time as you like, for as long as you like.

As the ‘Chainsaw’ bit of the demo suggests, you'll be running into RE4's notorious Chainsaw Ganado, aka Doctor Salvador, whose red Las Plagas-infected eyeballs peer out from the hessian sack over his head. If you manage to time it right, you can parry his chainsaw with Leon's combat knife, as shown in the first short trailer below.

You can download the free Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Demo now on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC, giving you a taste of what's to come when the full game launches on 24th March. You can also find out more in our hands-on preview and get some Chapter 4 gameplay here.

  • I love how parrying has become so popular you can now parry chainsaws in RE games. Queued her up and looking forward to spending as much time as I want roaming around. Their limited time demos kinda shit me.
  • Looks and feels great, very excited to get the full game in a couple weeks. I'm also so happy the bingo line is still there.
  • I saw you playing just as I started the demo, VGM. Loving it so far!
  • "Rolling out across ALL platforms"... Still waiting for the Xbox One version then guys... And yes, I know at this point it is not happening.
    By the way, anybody knows if the player fails to parry the chainsaw attack it is instant death like in the original or massive damage instead?
