As such, it pays to study the Resident Evil Village controls a little before you start playing. To help you out, we’ve got the full Resident Evil Village controls for PlayStation and Xbox below. Naturally, the PS4 controls for Resident Evil Village match up with those for PS5, and the same for Xbox One to Series X/S.

It’s worth noting that several sections of Resident Evil Village include contextual or cutscene-specific controls, but the game will always show the input required on screen when this happens. You’ll also need to look directly at items you want to interact with or pick up before you can press the X button on PlayStation, or the A button on Xbox systems. You can also choose to swap the run function between a toggle and hold. Several other options including aim assist are available in the game's menus.

Those were the full Resident Evil Village controls. We’ll have more guides for the game on the way soon, so check our hub page to make sure you don’t miss any.
