Three Resident Evil games are getting official ray tracing patches

Capcom today announced next-gen versions of three recent Resident Evil games: Resident Evil 7, as well as the recent remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. The remastered versions, coming later in 2022, are designed to speed up games. With Xbox Series X and PS5, but PC will also receive a patch adding, among other things, official support for ray tracing. Those “other things” include 3D audio support as well as “high frame rates,” which probably doesn’t mean much to PC users since all three games already support unlocked frame rates. However, it would be nice to get official support for ray tracing, although mods for Resident Evil 2 and 7 already exist. Capcom still has a lot to say about how extensive ray tracing is, though the screenshots offer nicer reflections.

By the way, they are definitely worth playing, except perhaps “extremely small resident Evil 3. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was a reimagining of the series, marking the first numbered installment played in the first person. It was also a very emphatic return to horror after the series turned into a flamboyant action with Resident Evil 6 (widely hated, although he has his fans).

It looks like it’s going to be a busy year for the series. We’ll likely hear more about the rumored Resident Evil 4 remake, and if we’re lucky, it could even come out in 2022. The recent port of Resident Evil 4 VR will also receive Mercenary multiplayer mode later this year.

Here are some screenshots provided by Capcom:
