The Resident Evil Village Maiden demo eye key location is the literal key to solving the short chunk of the game. This key, called the Maroon Eye Ring, is how players will open the statue door that says “One eye is just an empty socket” when examined. Here’s how to find the RE Village eye key and open the statue door. Here is a full demo walkthrough.
How to find the Resident Evil Village Maiden demo eye key
From the door in question, go down the spiral staircase near the fireplace.
Once down the stairs, turn left and go to the door that the arrow is pointing to.
That door will lead to a dining area with an open window and go to the side of the table where the arrow is pointing.
Look at the table and there will be a wine glass at the right side of it.
Examine the wine glass and rotate it with the stick. Rotate it on its side and look into where the liquid goes. There will be a ring in there. It is called the Maroon Eye Ring.
Press the X button to pick it up when the prompt pops up.
Now go back to the statue door at the top of the stairs. Don’t try to put the ring in the door just yet. First, press the Triangle button to open up the inventory.
Press X over the ring to examine it and then rotate it so the eyeball is looking directly at the camera. A prompt will come up so press X to take the eyeball out of the ring. After pulling the eyeball out of the ring, go back over to the door. Use the eyeball to open it and then continue on with the demo.
Completing the demo then lets players go and pre-order the game if they please. Just make sure to grab the right version, which are all listed here.
