The nightmare has only just begun for Ethan Winters, as Capcom draws the unluckiest man in the world back into this twisted realm of genetically engineered monsters and sinister corporations for Resident Evil Village. As the follow-up to 2017's Resident Evil 7, Village ups the enemies, the action, and the ante with the franchise's eighth main entry. Following an impressive marketing assault worthy of the Umbrella Corporation, Resident Evil Village is out now. 

Just like any modern game, simply rattling through the story and putting your controller down won't cut it. Resident Evil Village is no different, and with a trophy roadmap that would test even Ada Wong, this is one game you're going to have to put a lot of time into. While simply finishing the story and finding out what brought Ethan to this fairytale frightener will unlock the fan-favourite Mercenaries mode, playing the main campaign several times is the only way you'll get every trophy. If you're ready, here's the full guide of Resident Evil Village trophies.


How many Resident Evil Village trophies are there?

There are 50 trophies to unlock in Resident Evil Village, which come in different rarities and difficulties. Whether it's an automatic unlock as the story progresses, or you have to step off the beaten track, players will need to keep their eyes peeled to make sure every trophy is earned. It's a slog, but if you escape with your lives, it'll be well worth it to mount a virtual trophy on your virtual mantlepiece alongside Lady Dimitrescu's virtual head.

What's the best strategy for Resident Evil Village trophies?

If you think it's just a simple case of staking a few werewolves and defeating the four houses before moving your attention to Moter Miranda, be warned that it'll probably take five playthroughs to 100% Resident Evil Village. There are a lot of missable trophies on the way, however, the best advice is to enjoy your first run on Standard difficulty. You should aim to hit all the narrative and missable trophies on your first campaign, then concentrate on upgrading weapons to ensure you hit the harder trophies in later runs. 

By the time you hit your third circuit, you should be on the Village of Shadows difficulty and carrying a large arsenal of weapons that have the unlimited ammo ability. We'd recommend the M1851 Wolfsbane Magnum as your weapon of choice to blast your way through. Your fourth run is a challenge where you'll need to avoid spending much Lei, use less than four recovery items, and polish off the campaign in less than three hours. This should take you through to the final furlong, where you can only finish Village using melee weapons.

It's not an easy task, but if you fancy yourself as your very own Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, we're sure you're more than equipped to get that elusive Platinum trophy. Now you know what lies ahead, it's time to practice your best boulder punching skills and help Mr Winters through this ghoulish game of the gothic.
