Resident Evil 4 Remake is now available for everyone and some players are facing some pretty annoying issues. Especially on the PS5 obviously.
Unfortunately, if Resident Evil 4 Remake (especially on Steam) has had a record start and has already received many positive reviews from the press and players, all is not rosy.
Initially, fans complained about the conspicuous absence of the Separate Ways and Assignment: Ada bonus game modes. The latter, present in the original versions of Resident Evil 4 (from the PS2 version) were unlocked once Leon’s campaign was completed. We could then impersonate the beautiful Ada Wong in her own adventure for a few extra hours. And also play a small extraction mode specially designed for them. In this remake, Capcom made the controversial decision to sweep away this additional content. We still don’t know if it will be the subject of a DLC later or not.
The other point that also saddens is the fact that the game isn’t as beautiful as one would expect on consoles. Especially on PS5 where it can be downright ugly due to a bug.
A not so nice game on consoles?
As our friend Suttercane pointed out in his review of the PS5 version, Resident Evil 4 Remake has a kind of “veil” that makes the graphics less fine than expected. Not to mention some textures aren’t that crazy. As a result, we sometimes feel that there has been a slight step backwards between this remake and those of Resident Evil 2 (2019) and 3 (2020).
However, be careful Resident Evil 4 Remake remains visually very solid and sometimes even impressive. From a global perspective. At least if it’s not annoying.
The community has actually reported several bugs that can make the gaming experience really uncomfortable. Especially the flickering (flickering here and there) which makes the game really ugly. But there is a temporary fix for this while you wait for the patch.
We are aware of an issue where players may see flickering at the bottom of the screen when playing the PS5 version of Resident Evil 4 Remake.
We intend to fix the issue in a future update and apologize for the inconvenience!
How to fix Resident Evil 4 Remake flickering (graphic glitches with flickering) on PS5?
If Capcom still doesn’t have an answer for everything, the developers have nevertheless shared a little trick to try to counteract the problem.
If you notice flickering, those infamous screen flickers, on the PS5 version of Resident Evil 4 Remake, you can then make some manipulations to counteract the problem. Or at least try, as obviously it wouldn’t always work.
The method is as follows:
- Save your game, exit and restart.
If the problem persists :
- Disable the depth of field option through the menus.
- Enable motion blur in the options.
Of course, these solutions are only temporary. Capcom is currently working on a patch to fix this and many other bugs. A patch should arrive soon.
as a reminder Resident Evil 4 Remake is currently available for PS5, Xbox Series, PC and PS4. A first free DLC, the Mercenaries mode, will arrive in a few weeks while a PSVR 2 mode is in development. For now, only Resident Evil Village remains playable in VR with Sony’s new headset.
