Resident Evil upgrades are irreversible on PC, which is irritating for some players

Upgrades for numerous Resident Evil games went live this week following Capcom’s Showcase, but players are quick to find that they come with the concession that they can no longer choose lower quality settings.

Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7 all got major visual upgrades on consoles and PC this week, with Resident Evil Village getting its own later this year. On consoles, this means you can now download native Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of any game, with older versions persisting on older consoles (and in the case of the PlayStation 5, newer ones too). However, this is not the case on PC where your only option is the newer versions.
