Capcom is allowing players to roll back a Resident Evil 2 remake update that added ray-tracing and 3D audio on Steam.
After fans complained that a new ray-tracing update was breaking the Resident Evil 2 remake on PC, Capcom has restored the previous version of the game. However, they are leaving the option to leave the ray-tracing update in place.
“Due to overwhelming community response, we’ve reactivated the previous version that does not include ray tracing and enhanced 3D audio. Both enhanced and previous versions will be made available going forward,” Capcom said on Twitter.
How to restore the previous version
If you want to restore the previous version, follow these steps.
1. Click Library in Steam.
2. Right-click the game and select Properties.
3. In the pop-up menu, select Betas.
4. From the pull-down menu, select “dx11_non-rt.”
5. Close the pop-up menu and let Steam auto-update the game.
6. Launch the game normally once the update completes.
Please note some of the in-game option settings will be reset as a result of the rollback process. Also, if you would like to update the game to the new version again, simply select “None” from the pull-down menu in Step 4.
