Capcom says they are readying a day one patch for the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake that will, among other things, tone back the jarring rain effects seen in recently gameplay footage. Those rain effects were the subject of many fan complaints after people found the effects to be too distracting and outright lacking in quality.

In an interview with Press Start Australia, Resident Evil 4 producer Hirabayashi Yoshiaki says that the team has "seen everyone's reactions to the rain effects," and are already working on a day-one patch to make adjustments. The thick, white, distracting rain was first seen in a gameplay video premiered by Game Informer.

The footage, seen above, shows some gameplay shortly after Leon and Ashley escape from the church. They are seen walking through a cemetery as heavy rain falls everywhere, often times looking more than a bit out of place and distracting.

There's no word on what else might be included in that day one patch, but at least we know that the whole rain issue is being taken care of.

Resident Evil 4 is slated to be released on March 24 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The most recent gameplay video for Resident Evil 4 was shared late in February during a PlayStation State of Play event.
