Besides the fact that the RE8 Collectibles provide various buffs and details about the story, some of them come with additional info about Romanian folklore; thus, when necessary, I will tell you what they mean since they are related to my country.

Now, without further ado, let’s go over the four Resident Evil 8 Village Files you can find in the Prologue.

After you start the game and watch the introductory cutscenes, your goal is to carry Mia’s baby to the crib, which is found on the second floor.

There are 4 files you’ll have to find inside the house. Get them in the following order:

Fridge Memo

Look for the Fridge Memo pictured below in the kitchen where Mia is cooking.

You’ll find it on the fridge, and it contains a recipe for Rose’s food.

After you get the Fridge Memo, head upstairs, and when you reach the second floor, turn left and head to the area behind the stairs.

On the right side, you’ll see a door. Open it to enter a room with a lot of personal belongings. You can hear Ethan saying that he needs to clean that room.

On the right side, as you enter, there is a desk with a newspaper on it. This is the second Resident Evil Village file you should get in the Prologue.

Moving on, after you put Rose in her crib, before returning to Mia, check the office behind you.

Inside you’ll find a computer you should access to read Ethan’s Diary.

Medical Checkup Report

Immediately after you check the computer, on the right side (same room) there is a cupboard.

You should be able to spot it next to the laptop. Open the drawer and read the file.

Once you get the final file, head downstairs, and you’ll find Mia, who is cooking a local recipe named “Ciorba de legume”.

What Is Ciorba De Legume?

Ciorba de Legume, or the recipe Mia is cooking in Resident Evil Village Prologue, is a very common Romanian dish. It is made of vegetables, and it does not include meat.

Since there is no meat included, this dish is usually served cold. It includes potatoes, onions, carrots, and tomatoes, as well as green and red peppers.

After the cutscene ends, you’ll enter the second region in the game or the road toward the Village where even more collectibles can be found.
