Recently Capcom announced a next-gen update for 3 of their recent Resident Evil titles using the RE Engine, which included official support for ray tracing. However, it also came at a cost with increased system requirements, mod incompatibility, and reduced performance for a lot of players.

Thankfully, Capcom has now added an option to rollback the update on the titles, which includes the Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake, as well as Resident Evil 7. So if your PC can no longer run those titles because of the latest update, or you simply want the games to be compatible with mods or older operating systems again, then here’s how to do it:

  1. Click LIBRARY in Steam client.
  2. Right-click the game and select ""Properties...""
  3. In the pop-up menu, select ""BETAS""
  4. From the pull-down menu, select ""dx11_non-rt"" (Note: password not required)
  5. Close the pop-up menu and let the Steam client auto-update the game
  6. You should be able to launch the game normally once the update completes
  7. Please note some of the in-game option settings will be reset as a result of the rollback process.

If you would like to update the game to the new version again, simply select “”None”” from the pull-down menu in Step 4 above.

Thankfully you won’t have to worry about disabling auto-updates for the RE2 Remake, RE3 Remake, and RE7 anymore, as the old version can now be accessed through the Betas page on Steam. Hopefully we won’t be having these same issues when the highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 Remake officially launches next year.

What do you think? Have you played with the recent Resident Evil updates? What did you think of the ray tracing support? Is it worth enabling? Were you negatively affected by the update in terms of compatibility and general performance even without ray tracing? Let us know!

Did you experience worse performance in the latest update even without ray tracing?

Is ray tracing worth enabling in RE7 or RE2 and RE3 Remakes?

I realy like that they added the option of rollback, more developers should do that if updates makes game a worse experience for somebody.
