Capcom, a Japanese publisher and developer, has addressed a rare but extremely dangerous critical bug discovered in the remake of the popular game Resident Evil 4. The description of the situation may contain spoilers.
The flaw begins at the very start of the 12th chapter when the protagonist Leon Kennedy receives a plot item – the key that will allow him to continue to progress through the game.
The key will not be displayed in the inventory if you attack with a knife before the screen notification of receiving the item. In this case, it is advised to load the save before the start of the 12th chapter.
If this is not accomplished, the key will not be reclaimed later, and the user will not be able to continue the story until the proper application. The issue exists in earlier versions of the Resident Evil 4 remake on all platforms.
According to Capcom, the development team is already aware of the issue and is working on a fix in a future patch. At this time, the publisher does not provide a release date for the saving update.
After installing the patch, the game may be continued even after a "ruined" save, although the key item will likely be forcibly added to the inventory.
Resident Evil 4's remake was released on PC (Steam, PS4, PS5), Xbox Series X, and S on March 24. The other day it became apparent that one of the game's bosses is allergic to golden chicken eggs – with them, the game's progress becomes much simpler.
