Last night during AMD’s RX 6700 XT reveal, we also got a small update on Resident Evil Village. AMD confirmed that the developers will be utilising both raytracing and AMD’s FidelityFX features in the PC version.
In a tweet from the Radeon Twitter account, we also get a video demo showing off raytracing on AMD hardware in Resident Evil Village, although do be warned, Twitter’s video compression distorts quality quite a bit.
We've partnered with Capcom to utilize raytracing and AMD FidelityFX to enhance the atmosphere and next-generation visuals in Resident Evil Village. We can't wait to play #REVillage on May 7th. pic.twitter.com/VgSZiPlJvz

While this was revealed as part of the Radeon RX 6700 XT announcement, AMD’s recommended system requirements for this game do call for an RX 6800 XT if you want to switch raytracing on.
Resident Evil Village is currently set to release on the 7th of May. We’ll be looking forward to seeing how it performs across a range of GPUs then. Discuss on our Facebook page, HERE.
KitGuru Says: No word on Nvidia GPU support for raytracing in Resident Evil Village, so there are some questions still to be answered. Are many of you looking forward to Resident Evil Village?
