The game is now out in the wild, and fans have been soaking up the remake all day and will do so over the weekend – however some players will now need to know how to fix Resident Evil 4 Remake flickering lights on PS5.

In order to address the flickering lights problem on PS5 – no, Leon was not having a pocket rave as one humorous Twitter response put it! – Capcom suggests doing the following to try and fix it:

  1. Saving and restarting the game
  2. If the problem persists, try changing one of the following settings in the game’s options menu:
    • Set ‘Depth of Field’ in the Display tab to off
    • Set ‘Motion Blue’ in the Camera tab to off

That’s it! At least for now: Capcom and the Resident Evil team sign off the tweet and notice by saying ‘we intend to fix the issue in a future update and apologize for any inconvenience’. So, expect it to be included in a patch that will arrive with us imminently then.
