Resident Evil 4 Remake Leon with AshleyCapcom

The latest Resident Evil 4 remake patch has arrived fixing a selection of bugs and balancing the game further – much to the woe of speedrunners everywhere.

Resident Evil 4‘s 1.05 patch has now dropped with the update fixing some of the game’s graphical issues on Xbox and various other bugs that have been identified by players since The Mercenaries free DLC was released. While the update balances the game and makes lots of positive changes, there will be one contingent of players lamenting the release of patch 1.05.

That group is the speedrunning community who’ve been using a nifty trick that allows Leon to phase through a wall and skip a chunk of the game. Not only did this help speed runs, but it also made it much easier to beat the game in less time to unlock guns like the Handcannon or the Chicago Sweeper. Alas, these endgame guns will now need to be unlocked in the traditional way.

Leon’s ready for business in the RE4 remake.
