Naturally, players already extended the Resident Evil Village timed demo

A 60-minute timed demo of Resident Evil Village has released on the PC, and as is almost always the case with timed demos on the PC, someone has already found a way to reset the demo timer and allow you to keep playing. The exploit alters files on your computer to trick the game timer into thinking you’ve played less than you have.

Posters on the Steam forums have shared the technique, a slightly involved process involving disabling the Steam Cloud and using the third party SAM tool.
