A couple of days ago, Capcom released the Ray Tracing Updates for Resident Evil 7, 2 & 3. These patches ditched DX11 over DX12, and increased the game’s overall GPU requirements. And, after a huge backlash, the Japanese team has re-enabled DX11 via beta branches.
All you have to do in order to play the DX11 versions of Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake is follow this guide.
- Click LIBRARY in Steam client.
- Right-click the game and select “”Properties…””
- In the pop-up menu, select “”BETAS””
- From the pull-down menu, select “”dx11_non-rt”” (Note: password not required)
- Close the pop-up menu and let the Steam client auto-update the game
- You should be able to launch the game normally once the update completes
Now what’s great here is that all the bug fixes and tweaks that Capcom brought to the game are present in these DX11 versions. The only things they lack are ray tracing and the enhanced 3D audio. Capcom also stated that both enhanced and previous versions will be made available going forward.
