In the event you went to get your ass yeeted by Girl Dimitrescu this previous weekend solely to have Resident Evil Village crash as a substitute, you’re not alone. A latest replace to the PC model triggered a bug that’s crashing the sport for a lot of PC gamers on Steam.
Earlier at this time, Capcom made a publish on the official Resident Evil Twitter account apologizing for the inconvenience of the crashes and stating that it’s at present engaged on a repair. Gamers on Steam report that, upon beginning Village, they’re greeted with a message saying their knowledge is “incompatible” adopted by a advice to restart the sport, basically locking them out.

Kotaku reached out to Capcom for remark.
In a Steam discussion board publish, participant FluffyQuack speculated that the explanation ViIlage is now crashing on PCs is due to newly added code that checks the sport for modifications / anomalies and ceases to run when any are discovered. The flawed replace comes simply forward of the launch of its subsequent main DLC, dubbed the Winters’ Enlargement. Amongst different additions, the Winters’ Enlargement, which launches subsequent week, will add a brand new single-player episode and increase the rating attack-style battle mode known as “The Mercenaries” with 4 new playable characters, together with the now slightly-more-diminutive Girl D, Heisenberg, and boulder-punching aficionado Chris Redfield.
Whereas gamers await a repair from Capcom, FluffyQuack already workshopped a makeshift workaround that appears to permit the bottom recreation to run once more, with the caveat of not having the ability to use any of its DLC.
The Winters’ Enlargement updates will launch on October 28 and be accessible each individually, and as a bundle with the unique recreation often known as Resident Evil Village Gold Version.
