It's a good time to be a Resident Evil fan - not only is a movie reboot, two Netflix tv shows and a VR port of the beloved fourth installment in the works, but the long-awaited Resident Evil Village is now out and unleashed upon the world.
The eighth addition to the iconic long-running series brings the horror franchise to - you guessed it - a village setting, complete with werewolves, a castle and a certain tall vampire lady who has set the internet alight.
However, completionists and trophy hunters will only have one thing on their minds from the very beginning - getting that elusive 100 per cent or full gamerscore.
Therefore the trophy list is the first thing many people look at, and now you can view the full list before you even have the game as we have every single one and their description recorded below.

Resident Evil Village Trophies Tips and Tricks
There are 50 trophies in Resident Evil Village that take at least four play-throughs to unlock - however it is a relatively short game, so the platinum or full gamerscore can be unlocked in around 20 hours with some moderate speed-running.
While it may be tempting to start with the highest difficulty (Village of Shadows), it's far more practical to complete your first play-through on the standard or even casual difficulty, allowing you to unlock all the narrative trophies with relative ease. You have up to 20 manual save slots which you should make use of to go back for any missable trophies, though you can't, however, change the difficulty once you've started.
You'll then have access to New Game+, meaning that not only will all your money, inventory, weapons and upgrades progress over, but you'll also have access to the Extra Content shop. Not only can you now access every gun and customisable part, but you'll also get access to the infinite ammo mod, which will be invaluable for play-throughs on the harder difficulties and is completely legitimate for the trophies.
You'll then need to complete the game on hardcore and/or Village of Shadows difficulty - we recommend the M1851 Wolfsbane Magnum or the S.T.A.K.E. Magnum in particular for these play-throughs.

You'll then want to switch the difficulty down to casual for the remaining play-through trophies, which can be combined into one or two play-throughs depending on your skill level. The trophies in question require you to complete the game in under three hours, spend less than 10,000 Lei, and use four or less recovery items which can be done relatively easily with gun upgrades and infinite ammo. Somewhat harder is beating the game using only melee weapons - this one might take a play -through to itself.
The final and hardest trophies will be the now unlocked Mercenaries mode, in which you'll need to get a combo of 30 an S rank on all stages. Again setting the difficulty to casual is perfectly fine - and then viola, you'll have your well-earned platinum or full gamerscore.
