Resident Evil 2, 3 and 7 – Capcom Reintroduces Non-Enhanced Settings on PC After Backlash

Due to an "overwhelming community response," PC players can now roll back to the previous versions without ray tracing and 3D audio.

Resident Evil 7,2,3

Resident Evil 2 (2019), Resident Evil 3 (2020) and Resident Evil 7: biohazard recently received free upgrades for Xbox Series X/S and PS5, enabling ray tracing and 3D audio support. These also made it to the PC versions, resulting in higher system requirements. Fans with weaker hardware were less than pleased since this impacted performance and was mandatory.

Fortunately, due to an “overwhelming community response,” Capcom has reactivated the previous PC versions for all three games. Those who don’t want to experience ray tracing or 3D audio can roll back to this by right-clicking on the game in their Steam Library, selecting properties and going to Betas.

From the drop-down menu, select “”dx11_non-rt”” and let Steam auto-update. Once the update completes, you should be able to play the previous version (though some settings may be reset). Those who want to experience the new version later can simply select “”None”” under the Betas tab.

Along with these updates, Capcom also showed off tons of new content coming to Resident Evil Village later this year. Head here to learn more.
