The highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 Remake is set to launch on March 24, 2023 and Capcom has announced that a day-one patch will be available to address the game’s rain effects. The rain effects had been a source of criticism amongst the community and Capcom is now looking to fix it with the upcoming patch.
Producer Hirabayashi Yoshiaki said in a Press Start interview that the team has seen the reaction to the rain effects and is working on a day-one patch to make adjustments. A preview video from Game Informer showed the rain effects to be overbearing, causing the community to refer to it as “raingate.”
It is unclear how the patch will impact the rain, but many are hoping it will be toned down to match the rest of the game’s aesthetics. Aside from the rain effects, the patch, version 1.02, will also address miscellaneous bugs and will be around 4GB in size.
Before the game’s full release, a free demo will be available across various platforms, though the exact date is yet to be announced. More information about the demo will likely be revealed during the Capcom Spotlight presentation on March 9, 2023.
Resident Evil 4 Remake is sure to be an exciting game and fans are looking forward to the day-one patch to fix the rain effects. With the game’s release just a few weeks away, fans are sure to have a blast playing the game.
