A few days ago we reported that Capcom planned to address various performance issues affecting Resident Evil Villageof the PC version. According to the official Resident Evil Twitter account, there is now a patch to fix the problem.
Resident Evil Village is the latest installment in the long-running horror series. While it was one of the most well-received entries in the series, that didn’t save its PC release from bugs that tend to affect many PC ports, such as frame rates. inconsistent appearance and stuttering.
While performance issues are still being considered, Digital foundry did some research and found out that the culprit was DRM, Denuvo. When this DRM was removed from the game, it ran significantly smoother.
According to Resident Evil’s Twitter page, the patch brings several improvements to the game on PC. “FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) from AMD is now supported,” Capcom said. “FSR supports higher frame rates on PC to improve gaming experience… Adjustments have been made to optimize anti-piracy technology.”
Players are reporting that the frame rate and freeze issues are gone, but Capcom’s reaction time is now the focus of fans’ attention. With Capcom taking months to fix issues that were flagged at the game’s launch, some early adopters are feeling burned by the delay.
It’s great that the grading has been fixed, but the game has remained that way for the past two months and we haven’t received anything from the developers until the articles started coming in. It’s really sad and I will be extremely careful before buying a Capcom game next time.

New patch for Resident Evil Village is about 1GB in size and is currently available on Steam copies of the game. While it’s great that Capcom has finally looked into these issues, hopefully this ends their time with Denuvo, as it’s not the first instance of the anti-cheat engine causing Steam issues .
