If you don’t own an Oculus Quest 2, Capcom has given fans a good reason to invest.
Resident Evil 4, one of the greatest games of all time, has been announced for the virtual reality platform Oculus Quest 2.
The surprise announcement came earlier this week, along with plans to showcase the game during the upcoming Oculus Gaming Showcase.
“It’s the 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise and we are celebrating in style with the news that Capcom is partnering with Oculus Studios and Armature Studio to bring their revered survival horror game Resident Evil 4 exclusively for Oculus Quest 2 on VR to bring “, says the official announcement.
“We’ll have more details to share during the Oculus Gaming Showcase next week, so be sure to check out Twitch, Facebook, or YouTube on April 21 to find out more about how we brought this popular survival horror classic to VR – including new gameplay footage. “
Resident Evil 4 was a reinvention for the franchise that introduced an over-the-shoulder perspective and had no zombies.
“This game ushers in a new phase in the Resident Evil franchise and focuses on what happened after the Umbrella Corporation was dissolved.
“The over-the-shoulder camera’s groundbreaking perspective is a departure from the fixed-camera views found in previous entries and enables unrivaled action gameplay that has received critical acclaim.”
After his starring role in Resident Evil 2, Leon Kennedy is once again the focus of the game.
Instead of the familiar environment of Raccoon City, Resident Evil 4 moved the action to a village in Europe.
“After the completely unprecedented biological disaster in Raccoon City, the company that was exposed as the initiator of the atrocities, Umbrella, was wound up.
“Leon S. Kennedy, a survivor of the incident, later became a special agent on direct duty with the President of the United States.
“The president’s daughter was kidnapped and Leon followed eyewitness accounts to a cold village in Europe. In this village a new intrigue awaits …”
We’ll find out if the VR version lives up to the game when Oculus holds its VR game storefront.
The event will take place on April 21st and will focus on new and existing Oculus games like Pistol Whip, Lone Echo II, and Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge.
You can follow the event live at 11:00 p.m. CET by visiting the Oculus Twitch page or on Facebook.
