Earlier this year, we got the release of Resident Evil Village, the latest mainline game in Capcom’s seemingly eternal survival horror series. The game, alongside the latest Monster Hunter, helped to see major profits for the publisher, and was largely well received. However, the game wasn’t without some technical hiccups on the PC side, as that port shipped with some issues. Capcom has been doing some patchwork, and now more is set to come soon.
In a tweet from the official account, they detailed a new patch set to release on August 24th. There isn’t a lot of details here, most likely more will come in official patch notes when it goes live, but it will apparently address problems with certain CPUs launching the game and graphical touch ups. This follows a previous patch that modified the Denuvo DRM for improved performance. This is part of an ongoing effort to resolve lingering issues around the PC version.
Resident Evil Village is available on PC via Steam, with the patch set to go live on August 24th. The game is also available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Stadia.
A second Resident Evil Village performance patch is releasing on Steam starting August 24th UTC. The patch addresses the following:
– Fixed an issue where certain CPUs were unable to launch the game
– Minor fine-tuning of certain graphical processes
