Capcom has been improving Resident Evil Village's PC performance since the game was released. An initial patch reduced stuttering with the game’s anti-piracy measures and provided support for AMD’s FSR expansion technology, but if you’re still having issues, maybe the incoming performance patch is for you.
- Fixed an issue where some CPUs could not start the game
- Minor tuning of certain graphic processes
If you’ve had issues with this issue with your CPU and GPU combo, this may sound like music to you. There was a similar sound problem reported on Resident Evil subreddit by various Reddit users, but it is difficult to say whether this is the exact problem currently being corrected. After all, there are several CPUs reported, and some of the problems users were facing seem to have been fixed since then.
Luckily, this patch pauses most of these problems anyway. This way, those affected will have time to run it from start to finish before the arrival of the Resident Evil Village DLC caused during Capcom’s E3 program.
We don’t have a release date for that yet, however, just promise that “development has just begun”.
Looks like it could be a long way off, and similarly, Re: Verse, the free six-player multiplayer multiplayer game with Village, has been delayed until 2022.
