Naturally, with all of the enhancements that the upgrades convey, extra highly effective system necessities are wanted.
Sadly, having a beefier PC isn’t at all times an choice for some, particularly for those who had been beforehand in a position to run the Resident Evil video games in query with none points. PC players expressed their frustrations on a Reddit post.
Even worse, as acknowledged on a Steam blog post, as soon as the updates have been downloaded, you can’t revert again to the unique variations. This means for some, the video games will change into unplayable.
There’s no going again, but.

You can play the Resident Evil video games offline to keep away from the patches, however that’s not significantly splendid and if you happen to by accident obtain a patch, you’re just about screwed.

Hopefully, Capcom will launch a patch quickly giving the gamers the selection of enjoying earlier variations of RE2, RE3 and RE7.
