    Some smart players have figured out how to reset the 60 minute timer in the final Resident Evil Village demo, and it's very easy to do.

    Players have discovered a way to reset the 60-minute timer in the final Resident Evil Village demo on Steam. The demo is available now on many gaming platforms, and many curious gamers are checking out the spooky environments of the upcoming game for the first time.

    While most players find the time limit generous enough to explore the Castle and Village halves of the demo, Steam users have determined a method to reset the timer so you can repeat both as often as you like. After all, this photo mode can consume your time in a hurry.

    A user on the Steam forums detailed a six-step guide to resetting the timer, and it's pretty straightforward. However, it requires the use of an external utility called the Steam Achievement Manager (SAM). (If you are an old Steam user, you may have used SAM to unlock weapons in Team Fortress 2.)

    This is due to the fact that Capcom has taken the unusual step of using Steam's achievement system to track the time you spend on the demo. The final demo of Resident Evil Village is available on most gaming platforms until May 9th. 

    The demo was originally scheduled to run for just 24 hours, just like previous Village demos, but fan reaction led Capcom to extend it to a week. If you're excited to play Village on PC, be sure to grab the latest Nvidia drivers, which bring optimizations for the next game. Resident Evil Village launches for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, Stadia, and PC on May 7.
