First, there was Spider-Man’s notorious Puddlegate. Then there have been the not-so-watery streets of Cyberpunk 2077. Now it appears online game followers’ subsequent watery, pre-release controversy includes the heavy rain seen in some early gameplay of the Resident Evil 4 remake. Some suppose it appears to be like as dangerous because the awful-looking rain the GTA Trilogy remasters. Others are satisfied it’s simply video compression. And keep in mind: None of them have really performed the sport but.
Rumored for a while, Resident Evil 4 was formally introduced by Capcom again in June 2022. This new remake will replace the sport’s controls and fight, whereas conserving the identical fundamental story and characters. As soon as once more gamers will play as Leon as he travels to a rural a part of Japanese Europe to save lots of the President’s daughter and will get caught up in a complete lotta campy, horrific shenanigans. However primarily based on newly launched gameplay by Recreation Informer, some Resident Evil followers appear to suppose Leon’s greatest risk received’t be large monsters or contaminated villagers, however lackluster rain.
Throughout Reddit and Twitter, you will discover many gamers who suppose the in-game rain appears to be like terrible within the upcoming remake. Whereas I’m undecided who was the primary individual to share these considerations on-line, they’ve shortly unfold across the neighborhood. Some have even steered the rain appears to be like as dangerous because the infamously horrendous rain seen within the critically thrashed Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Version. That rain was so dangerous wanting that it made the sport practically unplayable throughout storms and was finally improved by the devs by way of a post-release patch.
Anyway, right here’s the remade RE4’s rain that’s inflicting such a kerfuffle:
I’ll totally admit that I watched this footage twice when Recreation Informer first posted the video and didn’t suppose something of the rain. However even within the feedback on YouTube, you will discover folks apprehensive about how intense and distracting it’s.
Kotaku has contacted Capcom in regards to the climate within the upcoming remake.
Others suppose individuals are being too nitpicky and counsel that the true drawback isn’t the rain however YouTube’s terrible video compression. I’m inclined to suppose YouTube’s compression is certainly not serving to this rain look good, however I may also see how some may discover the massive and distinct white drops of water to be an excessive amount of.
In fact, this being the web and avid gamers, some individuals are going too far and suggesting the devs are lazy or that this can be a signal the complete recreation will probably be a large, rushed “money seize.” That’s fully foolish and asinine. Bear in mind: None of us have performed the sport, which isn’t even completed but.
Resident Evil 4 is due out March 24, 2023 on PS4, PS5, Xbox Collection X/S, and PC. Perhaps it ought to embrace a rain depth slider.
