In Resident Evil Village, you will find various animals to hunt throughout the game. By hunting, you can gather ingredients for recipes that will grant permanent stat boosts, such as decreased damage taken while blocking. This is a significant addition to the shop system and will add some variety to the overall gameplay loop.
