At first glance it would seem you can’t move forward with the story. As tricky as it is, there is a solution to this seemingly hopeless problem. We offer our step-by-step guide for hardcore difficulty players so you can survive the attack in Resident Evil 8 Village.
How to Complete Survive the Lycan Attack on Hardcore Difficulty in Resident Evil 8
Here are some general guidelines to have in mind. The name of the game is surviving the Lycan attack for approximately 6 minutes. Once you’ve endured long enough, the objective Survive the Attack will activate. After it, you can let yourself get defeated. Furthermore, there is another trick if you want to complete the Survive the Lycan Attack portion in Resident Evil Village. Namely, you achieve nothing by killing large numbers of enemies. Save your ammo as much as possible, and avoid Lycans when you can.
As you pass the tiny wooden bridge into the East Old Town, enter the first house ahead. There’s no point going around it since both gates are locked. As you enter and explore a bit, the game will give you a subtle nudge that you can barricade doorways with shelves. We suggest you that, so go ahead and point and click on the shelves. Search around and collect all the items you can, especially the ammo. Soon enough the Lycans will surround the house. The enemies can enter through the hole in the roof so wait for them downstairs. You can shoot them easily on the steps. Once you kill these ones, remove the shelves barricade and you can kill the ones standing outside.
Leave the house and you’ll notice that the red locked gate is torn down. From there, follow the bloody trail leading to the next house and enter it.
Try holding your ground long enough until Urias spawns. That’s the large uber-Lycan holding a gigantic mallet. If you manage to survive the Lycan attack for at least 6 minutes the objective: Survive the Attack should pop-up.
While you’re lying on the ground, the Lycans and Urias will surround you. As you despair they will suddenly rush off. Congratulations! You’ve managed to complete the Survive the Attack portion in Resident Evil 8. What’s more, you’ve found the hardcore difficulty solution. Don’t worry about all the items you’ve left behind you. If you miss the chance to pick them up, you can return once you complete the survive Lycan attack part.
