Resident Evil has experienced a real renaissance compared to the last generation of consoles: Capcom introduced Resident Evil 7 and the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3, all of which have been well received by fans. Back in March, Capcom announced plans to update the graphics for all three games on the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 consoles, as well as on PC. A big ray tracing update has been officially released this week.
Capcom today released next-gen versions of Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Resident Evil 7. The updates will be distributed free of charge to all digital game owners on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. On the Xbox side, games will use Xbox Smart Delivery, making the update process very easy. On PS5, you’ll have to look for the PS5 versions of each game and download them individually. On Steam, the game should just automatically start downloading the update if you have it installed.
The next generation update includes several new improvements. On Xbox Series X and PS5, these games now support 4K resolution and 120Hz modes. The update also adds support for 3D audio and ray-traced global illumination. Unfortunately, DLSS is not supported, but AMD FSR 1.0 technology exists and we hope it will be updated to FSR 2.0 later.
The update is available now, but it wasn’t the only Resident Evil-related announcement to hit Capcom’s storefront.
