Capcom Issues Warning for Critical Progress Bug in Resident Evil 4, Promises Upcoming Fix

Capcom has recently issued a warning to Resident Evil 4 players regarding a rare yet critical progress-blocking bug that has been discovered in the game. The company is working on a patch to address the issue and has provided players with a temporary workaround until the update is released.

The bug in question occurs at the beginning of Chapter 12, during which players may fail to obtain a crucial key item after a cutscene. Without this item, players cannot advance further in the game. Capcom has advised players not to attack with the knife until the notification for obtaining the item appears in the upper right corner of the screen. Once the item has been acquired, it will appear in the Key Items & Treasures menu in the attaché case.

In the event that the key item does not appear, Capcom recommends reloading saved data from before the start of Chapter 12 to avoid the bug.

The bug is currently present in all versions of Resident Evil 4. Capcom is committed to addressing the issue with a future update, which will allow players to continue the game even if their saved data was affected by the bug.

In addition to the progress-blocking bug, Capcom is also working on fixing an issue that causes flickering lights to appear in the PlayStation 5 version of the game.

The Resident Evil series fans can rest assured that Capcom is actively working to resolve these issues and improve the gaming experience. Players should follow Capcom’s advice until the patch is released to avoid encountering the critical progress bug and ensure a smoother gameplay experience.
