I can’t be the only one that felt the default Resident Evil Village settings on console were a little off. Though I couldn’t quite put my finger on it exactly, something didn’t feel right or very natural. So, I tinkered around with the various settings available and came up with the best camera, controls, and movement settings that feel a lot better. Though, it is subjective, so I recommend trying my settings but you can always slightly adjust it to your liking. Without further ado, here’s the best optimal camera, controls and movement settings for Resident Evil Village on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
On the PlayStation 5 version of the game, you can keep adaptive triggers on if you want the added immersion. Adaptive triggers require players to apply a variable amount of torque dependent on the weight of the weapon they’re firing. This sensation of weight adds to the immersion as every weapon type has a unique weightiness. For instance, a heavier shotgun requires more torque than a light pistol and you really feel that difference with the DualSense controller. I also leave controller vibration on for the rumble effect but I know some people prefer to just turn this off.
Unless it’s a game involving flight, I don’t invert the controls so just leave movement camera inversion and aiming camera inversion on normal if you don’t want them inverted. Here’s the most important parts, you want to set movement camera speed to 7 and aiming camera speed to 2. You want the movement camera speed higher because it’ll feel smoother as you pan the camera around. You want the aiming camera speed quite low because you’ll have a tough time being accurate with your shots otherwise. Also, both movement camera acceleration and aiming camera acceleration are on by default. Turn this all the way down to none to get the smoothest experience. I also turned camera wobble off as that can result in a jarring feeling of sickness in some people.
Lastly, for the game settings, if you’re using a controller you’re likely going to want to leave aim assist on. Aim assist is a feature that most players who use controllers have inevitably used. It’s a feature that helps guide the crosshairs toward opponents automatically. On the face of it, it sounds like cheating. Nevertheless, in truth, it is added to compensate for the fact that aiming with a thumbstick is far more difficult and less precise than with a mouse. Though, if you’re an expert of the thumbstick then you can turn this off too.
Set a few years after the horrifying events in the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again. Resident Evil Village is out and available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
