Last week, it was confirmed that Resident Evil Village's dual-DRM system on PC was causing performance issues, including frame spikes and stuttering. Now, Capcom has begun pushing out an update to fix this, while also adding in AMD's newly launched FidelityFX Super Resolution technology.
The update comes in at just over 1GB on Steam and should noticeably improve performance on PC. DRM has not been removed from the game, but Capcom says “adjustments have been made to optimise the anti-piracy technology”, which should mean less severe stuttering and a more consistent frame rate.
PC players will also be able to get a nice performance boost from FidelityFX Super Resolution, which has now been implemented in Resident Evil Village. AMD's new scaling technology has been implemented in a handful of games so far with promising results. Unfortunately, since the update only just dropped, we do not have benchmarks for FSR in Resident Evil Village just yet.
The patch is now rolling out on Steam, so if you own Resident Evil Village, be sure to install the update.
