Resident Evil Village has a photo mode. What this means is, you’ll be able to capture and share some of the game’s most memorable moments on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Despite the lack of a photo mode in past games in the franchise, Capcom’s first attempt at it in a Resident Evil title is pretty good. Here’s everything you need to know.

Simple enough, hit pause and the option to enter Photo Mode is right there. Using it for the first time nets you an easy 15G on Xbox Series X|S and One, a bronze trophy on PS4 and PS5, and a Steam achievement on PC.
