The developers of the Resident Evil 4 remake have issued a warning about a critical bug that can be found in Chapter 12.
While the game has been delivering a mostly smooth experience with exciting gameplay changes from the original version, this bug could potentially halt players from completing the Resident Evil 4 remake’s story.
The remake’s popularity is off the charts
There’s no denying that Resident Evil 4 is the hottest topic in the gaming industry this month. The game has already achieved both commercial and critical success just a few days after its release, thanks to its impeccable design.
By altering the game’s original design in several fascinating ways, the developers have kept the best bits of the game while making it worthwhile for those who have already played the original.
The Resident Evil 4 remake bug is a game-breaker
Capcom has recently issued a warning to Resident Evil 4 remake players about a game-breaking bug that can be found at the start of Chapter 12.
The developers have revealed that this error happens in a specific situation. During the chapter’s first few minutes, a cutscene will play, and the player will acquire a crucial item called Luis’ Key.
However, if players use the knife during the brief period before receiving the notification for actually gaining Luis’ Key, the game will glitch, and the item will not be received, blocking further progress.
If you don’t want to be soft-locked by this bug, make sure you don’t miss out on Luis’ Key! This is the item in question, and you can grab it without fear of spoilers. The issue is present on all platforms at the moment, but the developers have promised to fix it in the next update.
Devs are on their way to fixing it
Players who have encountered this issue will be able to continue their gameplay once the fix is available. Considering the Resident Evil 4 remake has sold over four million units in just two days, many gamers might be affected by this or a similar problem.
For now, the best solution is to have multiple saves to avoid any similar bugs.
Contributions from the modding community
While the developers work to correct this issue, the modding community has already started making changes to the game’s design. For example, one modder has fixed Ashley’s heavy breathing in the game.
The President’s daughter has been criticized for breathing too loudly after physical exertion in the remake, and this fix could potentially resolve the problem.
More of these bugs and the all-time high records on Steam for the RE4 remake would be overtaken by others.
