Resident Evil: Current Gen Upgrade is now undoable

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard: Free update, but not for everyone - PS Plus Collection excluded (1)

As we recently reported, Capcom released a free current-gen upgrade for the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, as well as Resident Evil 7. This includes, among other things, support for ray tracing and a 4K resolution, and a improved frame rate. While the free update was a nice touch, there were a few issues with it.

New Resident Evil update no longer let users play the titles

Unfortunately, players who own Resident Evil 7 Biohazard through the PS Plus Collection will not receive a free upgrade to the current-gen version. Instead, they have to purchase the game separately to take advantage of the new features. Furthermore, the new update ensured that the system requirements of the titles went up. As a result, players with weaker machines were simply unable to play the various games because the update could not be removed once it was installed.

Publisher Capcom has probably noticed the complaints of many fans, because recently they now released versions of the games without ray tracing, so that players can play their purchased titles again. To access the DirectX 11 version without ray tracing, you must first open the game’s settings on Steam. Here you then switch to the “Betas” tab and select “dx11_non_rt”. After doing this, Steam should automatically update the title.
