Resident Evil 2's PC upgrade patch is coming soon
On Steam Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil 2's PC system requirements are about to change, all thanks to the game's soon to be released upgrade patch.
On PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5, Resident Evil 2, 3 and 7 will be receiving upgraded versions with visual enhancements. On PC, this change will make DirectX 12 a minimum requirement for Resident Evil 2, suggesting that the game's upgrade patch will add new ray tracing effects to the game.
Resident Evil 2, 3 and 7 all use Capcom's RE Engine, an engine that supports Ray Traced Shadows, Ambient Occlusion and Reflections in Resident Evil Village. It us likely that Resident Evil 2's upcoming upgrade patch will support these new ray tracing features, and new upscaling technologies like AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution (like Resident Evil Village).
Below is what Capcom had to say in a new update on Resident Evil 2's Steam page.
The system requirements will change with the arrival of the upgrade patch. The new minimum requirements are listed below alongside the previous specifications no longer supported under this upgrade patch.
