Resident Evil Four VR remake goes to launch on Oculus Quest 2
Gaming fans of “Resident Evil” will be delighted as the fourth part of the game will be republished in Virtual Reality (VR) on the “Oculus Quest 2” headset.
According to The Verge, the VR remake of ‘Resident Evil 4’ will be a collaboration between series publisher Capcom, Oculus parent company Facebook and independent studio Armature. The published Capcom didn’t offer many details of the collaboration, however early footage shows an adaptation of the classic first-person third-person shooter.
Capcom announced its news during a “Resident Evil” showcase that also included a new trailer for the non-VR “Resident Evil Village”. Oculus and Facebook Reality Labs will reveal more about the game on April 21, when Facebook hosts its own VR showcase for the Quest.
As reported by The Verge, the “Resident Evil” series has already tried VR. The 2017 first person game ‘Resident Evil 7’ allowed users to play the entire game with a PlayStation VR headset, which arguably made the game more scary but also harder to play. Capcom has also released a VR-only demo for the game.
It’s special this time around as this is the first full Resident Evil game designed specifically for VR – and specifically for Facebook’s standalone Oculus Quest 2. Although it’s not clear whether Resident Evil 4 also supports the original Quest Oculus has tried in the past to make Quest games compatible with both headsets.
