RE Village Demo Runs in Native 4K and 60 FPS With Ray Tracing

Benchmarks of the Resident Evil 8 demo released today have surfaced online, showing that the PS5 enables us to play in native 4K with ray tracing enabled, while maintaining 60 fps most of the time.

Today we wrote about the Resident Evil Showcase. At the same time, Capcom published a demo of Resident Evil Village, titled Maiden, which is available only on PlayStation 5. In connection with this, a video appeared on the ElAnalistaDeBits channel on YouTube, which checked how Sony's new console handles the title. As it turns out, the results are quite impressive.

Resident Evil 8 demo supports ray tracing, so the host could test the full capabilities of the PS5. As it turns out, Maiden runs smoothly in native 4K with ray tracing enabled, maintaining 60 frames per second when there's not much going on on screen. At higher object densities, however, drops to around 50 fps appear.

It's worth pointing out, though, that this short 20-minute demo doesn't contain any combat scenes and is more of a representative form. This means that it was not possible to check how the game behaves in more dynamic fragments. However, it is to be expected that in such cases the performance will drop. A second demo of Resident Evil Village will be made available in the spring, and it's likely we'll find out then.

Resident Evil 8 is scheduled to debut on May 7, 2021. The title will hit PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
