As announced, Capcom has released a new update for the PC edition of Resident Evil Village.
The patch improves performance and, hopefully, will eliminate the micro-stuttering that has been making gamers miserable since launch day. AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution support has also been optimized and several technical bugs have been fixed.
Original message from 06.08.2021:
Capcom announced that next week it will release another patch to improve the performance of the PC version of Resident Evil Village. The release of the update is scheduled for August 10. The patch will also offer improved support for AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution.
The PC version of the game was warmly received, but it had noticeable performance issues. The strangest thing about it was that Resident Evil Village was suffered from stuttering when the situation on screen did not explain the performance drop.
The topic became public last month, when it turned out that installing a crack got rid of micro-stuttering. The conclusion was that the problems were caused by the Denuvo anti-piracy system. These speculations were confirmed a few days later when Capcom released a patch to improve performance, which was achieved by "optimizing the DRM solution".
The update reduced the severity of stuttering, but did not eliminate it completely. So it's good that the developers will offer another patch soon. Many players were probably hoping for the removal of Denuvo, but the publisher has no intention of doing so for now and promises only further optimization of the game.
Resident Evil Village was released on May 7 this year. In addition to PC, the game is also available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and PS5, as well as Google Stadia.
