Resident Evil upgrades can’t be undone on PC, irritating some players



Upgrades to many Resident Evil games went live after Capcom’s presentation this week, but players are quickly finding that comes with the concession of no longer being able to choose lower quality settings.

Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7 all received significant visual upgrades this week on consoles and PC, with Resident Evil Village getting its own later this year. On consoles, that means you can download native Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of every game now, with older versions persisting on older consoles (and, in the case of the PlayStation 5, newer ones as well). This is not the case, however, on PC, where your only option is the newer versions.

Usually this wouldn’t be a problem, but there are several reasons why this has caused issues. First, the minimum requirements for each game have now increased, meaning you might not be able to play them at all if you were just scratching before. Games also now exclusively use DirectX 12, which is required for features like ray tracing, but means older Windows support and compatibility with many mods (including the most popular VR ones) is gone.

The only way to avoid these new releases is to turn off automatic updates for each game and hope you never have to reinstall them again in the future. It’s a shame that Capcom didn’t provide the ability to at least download the original builds or give users an option for which version of DirectX to use like so many other games do.

Resident Evil Village is getting a similar update in October, which also includes the game’s first story expansion and new features for its Mercenaries mode, including the ability to play as Lady Dimitrescu.
