Capcom’s latest patch 1.05 for Resident Evil 4 Remake fixes dead zone issues and texture problems that users previously encountered when upgrading to update 1.04.
In case you didn’t know, the previous patch sought to improve visuals, and enhance overall performance on PS5, as well as fix controller dead zone issues on Xbox Series consoles.
For the most part, update 1.04 worked as intended, however, it also introduced various graphical anomalies that included blurry visuals caused by shimmering, aliasing, and texture pop-in issues in both “performance” and “resolution” modes. Bummer.
Fast forward to today and you will find that Capcom’s 1.05 update fixes these issues and then some for PS4, PS5, PC, and Xbox Series players.
Kicking off with PlayStation owners, incorrect text displaying for certain trophy explanations in Brazilian Portuguese and Latin American Spanish languages has been fixed. Obrigada! Additionally, a glitch that caused Leon to warp through walls in certain areas when using a scope has been fixed. Speed runners, be damned.
Xbox Series X/S console owners will no longer experience ghostly stick drift thanks to another dead zone fix, which should significantly improve user experience. Also, changes to the graphical rendering process should increase framerates and fend off all those visual inconsistencies players have been experiencing. Neat.
