Difficulty Village of Shadows in Resident Evil 8 Village and how to unlock it

We tell you how to unlock the Resident Evil 8 Village Difficulty of Shadows on PC, PS5, PS4, and Xbox and we will help you overcome it without hardships.

The Shadow Village difficulty level is the final challenge you will have to face in Resident Evil 8 Village. In this section of our complete guide, we tell you how to unlock it and help you overcome this challenging game mode. Equip your best weapons and follow our advice to avoid problems when it comes to surviving enemies that will be more dangerous than ever.

Unlock the Shadow Village difficulty

To be able to play in this mode you must complete the game for the first time on any difficulty level, although if you have the Deluxe Edition of Resident Evil 8 Village you will have it unlocked from the beginning.

The first thing to keep in mind when approaching this mode is that enemy attacks do a lot of damage, resources are not so easily found and any threat can kill you in the blink of an eye. But fear not; we help you survive.

Tips for surviving in Shadow Village mode

Play with infinite ammunition: unlike anything seen in other installments in the series, Resident Evil 8 Village is generous when it comes to New Game Plus. Without going any further, if you load the file of a completed game you can start a new one in another difficulty mode taking advantage of the improvements and unlocked extras. Of course, infinite ammo cannot be lacking in your best weapon.

Learn to block and push: good defense is as important as the best of attacks. With the L2 trigger (PS5, PS4) and LT (Xbox), you can block the attacks of almost every enemy in the game. In addition, if you press the button again immediately, you will make an effective counterattack that will make your opponent go back. It is vitally important that you master this movement when entering a fight.

Fight Only If Necessary – There are enemies you can run from as you don’t have to kill all of them. Taking into account that they are very dangerous and that you do not have too much ammunition, the smartest thing is to fight only when strictly necessary. In addition, it is not advisable to extend your stay excessively in some areas of the game, so we advise you to follow our step-by-step guide so as not to get stuck at any time.

Forget about treasures: the main objective of completing this mode is exactly that, to complete it. So don’t be obsessed with looking for treasures, or exploring too much. The closer you get to the main objective, the closer you will be to overcome the challenge and the fewer enemies you will encounter on your way. Focus on getting only the key items you need to advance.

Reserve the best weapons for the final bosses: it is obvious, but it does not hurt to remember. If you’re not going to play with infinite ammo or are brave enough to play in this mode from the start (if you have access), once you have powerful weapons like the GM 79 grenade launcher and the M1851 Wolfsbane revolver, don’t waste your ammo fighting against normal enemies; save it for boss battles at the end of the game.

Make medicines: in other difficulty levels it is more advisable to create mountains of ammunition, but in Shadow Village, it is better to bet on storing medicines. The reason is due to the damage inflicted by enemies; a single hit will bring you to the brink of death, so don’t take a second to heal your wounds.

Watch out for Lady Dimitrescu: as you well know, the imposing woman is chasing you as you explore the castle. In other difficulty modes, she can withstand several of his attacks, but in Shadow Village, she is a deadly foe; learn to avoid it with our tips to escape from Lady Dimitrescu .
