Capcom Reverses Resident Evil PC Upgrade Decision After ‘Overwhelming Community Response’


Capcom has reversed its decision to force upgrades to the PC versions of Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Resident Evil 7.

The updated versions – which aligned with the release of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series upgrades – added ray tracing and improved 3D audio, but also increased system requirements and caused performance issues for some users, causing many players to request a choice to return. to older versions.

Announced on each game’s Steam page, the developer said it has made older versions of the games available again “due to the overwhelming response from the community.”


There’s a bit of work to do before old versions can be played again, but Capcom has given step-by-step instructions on how to revert the games (the instructions are the same for every game). Players will therefore be able to choose the version of the game they want for the future.

Enhanced Edition updates were announced in March alongside next-gen versions of each game, soon to be joined by Resident Evil 4 Remake when it hits PlayStation, Xbox, and PC next year. IGN said Resident Evil 7 was good while Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remakes were both rated amazing.
