Capcom didn’t share a video of how the Resident Evil 4 flickering lights bug looks on the PS5. It only noted that it will show up on the bottom half of the screen. It noted that there are three things that can help in the meantime.

The first possible solution is to save. After you have, go to the PS5 home menu and close the game out. Then, choose to restart it.

The other two ways to potentially get rid of this problem while waiting for the Resident Evil 4 remake patch is to try adjusting two options. One is to turn on the Camera’s Motion Blur. The other is to turn off the Display’s Depth of Field. Capcom only mentioned doing one or the other.

The Resident Evil 4 remake is available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and the PS5 flickering lights patch is coming.
