Resident Evil Remakes By chance Lose Ray-Tracing On PC

Picture: Capcom

Final week Capcom pushed an replace out to the Steam variations of the remakes for Resident Evil 2 & 3. It was supposed to be a generic little replace, however no matter Capcom did beneath the hood ended up breaking a few the sport’s nicer options.

Not lengthy after the updates went reside PC customers started noticing that the choice to allow ray-tracing inside each recreation’s menu had disappeared. Additionally gone was the choice to activate 3D audio help. Whereas some followers on Reddit initially believed this to have been intentional, Capcom later issued a press release confirming that the modes had been affected by the replace, and that they “apologize for any inconvenience”.

To all Resident Evil 2 / Resident Evil 3 customers on Steam

We’re conscious of an ongoing situation with the raytracing choice not showing within the graphics menu and presets. We’ll have this addressed in a future replace and apologize for any inconvenience!

Sucks that it’ll take one other replace to repair stuff that had already been within the recreation, however that’s recreation improvement and help, child.

Weirdly, this isn’t the primary time these two particular choices have been the main target of botched updates. Again in 2022 the Resident Evil 2 remake, Resident Evil 3 remake and Resident Evil 7 have been all forcibly up to date on PC to incorporate ray-tracing and 3D audio, a transfer which massively upset customers who have been (rightly) involved that this may blow the required specs for the video games—which they’d already purchased and performed—out of the window.

After the updates did precisely that, and followers protested, Capcom rapidly reverted:

“Because of overwhelming group response, we’ve reactivated the earlier model that doesn’t embody ray tracing and enhanced 3D audio,” Capcom’s Resident Evil group wrote on Steam. “Each enhanced and former variations will probably be made accessible going ahead.”

First too many individuals had ray-tracing, now no person has ray-tracing.
