The latest update of Resident Evil Village for PC broke the Steam version of the game. While waiting for the Gold Edition (which will include a series of decidedly important innovations, including a DLC that promises to be decidedly interesting), the Japanese development team continues to work on the computer version of its first-person horror game, but the latest patch made it impossible for some users to launch the title.
As reported online (and later confirmed by Capcom itself), The latest Resident Evil Village update closes the game you just started. A problem that is clearly currently under investigation by the Japanese publisher and developer. “We are investigating to be able to publish a fix and we apologize to all those who have been affected by this problem,” reads a Capcom press release launched in the last few hours.
It is clearly not yet clear what could have happened, especially considering that at the moment the problem does not affect all players of Resident Evil Village on Steam but only some users. We are quite sure that Capcom will solve the problem as soon as possible, but it is certainly a decidedly strange situation, which we hope is involving as few users as possible. On the other hand, we can imagine the frustration of not being able to play something because an official patch prevents it from starting correctly.
To all Resident Evil Village Steam players:
We're aware of an ongoing issue with the latest patch that's causing the game to crash for some users. We're currently looking into a fix, and apologize for any inconvenience caused!
