Resident Evil Village guide and walkthrough

Polygon’s Resident Evil Village guides will take you through every step of the Gothic horror-inspired campaign. We made the kind of RE8 guides that we wish we had when we started playing.

Whether you’re a Resident Evil veteran or a newcomer, our Resident Evil Village beginner’s guide will help you with tips on everything from conserving ammo to exploration to landing life-saving (and -ending) headshots. To get the most out of those headshots, we've got a list of every Resident Evil Village weapon and weapon mod and where to find them.

We also have walkthroughs for every section of RE8, including every piece of ammo, lei, treasure, and crafting material you can collect, along with key items (like the Iron Insignia Key), lock combinations, and puzzle solutions. Any time there’s a boss fight, we’ll give you tips to help you survive.

Check out our collection of Resident Evil Village guides below, or skip straight to the walkthrough for the introduction and Ethan’s arrival to the village.
