Lst week, Capcom surprised Resident Evil fans by releasing a patch to Resident Evil 7 biohazard that didn’t really bring anything new other than to remind people of Resident Evil Village’s release date is set for May. Today, Capcom has released the Resident Evil 7 biohazard update 1.09 (Gold Edition 1.04)! This update is out on all platforms as we speak.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard Update 1.09 Patch Notes (Gold Edition 1.04):
Same as the last one, Capcom has NOT issued any announcement regarding this patch. There is a chance it’s somehow connected to Resident Evil Re:Verse’s beta starting today, since Capcom might have an announcement or banner for that to entice Resident Evil 7 players to sign up.
Also of note, reliable Resident Evil/Capcom leaker Dusk Golem has mentioned that there is a Resident Evil 7 next-gen upgrade patch set to be rolled out:
I know VR was in at some point, I don't know the current status. To do VR they need a consistent performance for motion sickness, I guess to see. There is other things that are 100% happening they for some reason didn't mention here though, like the RE7 Next-Gen patch though. https://t.co/1zNHti0k0x
