Resident Evil Village might not be a multi-dozen hour game that takes you on a globe-trotting journey, but it uses its runtime very effectively in more ways than one- even in terms of secrets and easter eggs, which are just littered all over the game and begging to be found. We’ve spent quite some time with Capcom’s survival horror masterclass by now, and in this feature, we’re going to talk about the best of the best secrets and easter eggs we’ve discovered in the game.

WHAT’RE YOU BUYING?
The Duke is essentially a new take on the fan-favourite merchant character from Resident Evil 4, being just one of many ways Village takes cues from its revolutionary precursor. And RE Village has a few very self-aware references to that effect. For instance, during your first meeting with the Duke, he will suddenly go in a very familiar voice, “what’re you buying?” He’ll follow that up with a knowing laugh, saying that that’s just something “a friend” of his used to say.
