Resident Evil Village is a direct sequel to Resident Evil 7 and the latest entry in the long-running franchise. This is a cross-gen title, and available on a variety of platforms including PC. It’s developed on the RE Engine and runs well on multiple PC setups. Now, even though the PC version runs very well, it isn’t perfect. There are some technical issues and a lack of proper support for specific peripherals. If you want to download and install the Resident Evil 8 PS4 Button Prompts Mod, here is how you can do so.

Mods have allowed PC gaming to reach its full potential. Modders have at times fixed all sorts of performance issues and have added quality of life improvements to games that really needed those. Cyberpunk 2077 was a recent game that had a lot of mod support, and dedicated users are still releasing new mods for it, every day. Thankfully, Resident Evil titles also support mods, which is why the game can be further improved.

The PC version of Resident Evil 8 doesn’t have PS4 controller prompts, and that is a bit disappointing. There are a lot of PC users that prefer the dual-shock 4 over the Xbox controller. A lot of developers have added full support for both, and even the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.

To fix this, NexusMods user boycalledjames has already created a mod for the PS4 button prompts. You can install that by following the steps below.

Download Fluffly Manager

First, to install Resident Evil 8 mods, you will need the Fluffy Manager
