Resident Evil four VR unveiled for Oculus Quest 2 — and it’ll scare the heck out of you

Resident Evil 4 is coming to VR, but not Sony’s PS VR headset. Instead, the legendary horror title will appear on Oculus Quest 2, even though Capcom has not yet cleared a release window.

The news was announced during the Resident Evil Showcase and revealed that the VR version of the game is being edited by Capcom, Oculus Studios and Armature. Unlike the original, we get a first-person perspective that suits the new medium. And from the snippets of gameplay that we can see in the video, there are some strong Resident Evil 7 VR vibes.

Players are being promised “more richness and depth” with the VR customization, which doesn’t have much going for it, but we’ll see more details next week on Wednesday April 21 at the Oculus Gaming Showcase. There will also be new gameplay to be seen. So if the tidbits in the announcement video piqued your interest, tune in to Twitch and YouTube. The show begins at 3 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. ET / 11 p.m. BST.

Capcom introduced a first-person POV for the first time in the series with Resident Evil 7, which makes the jump to VR a lot easier for gamers. Resident Evil Village is also sticking to the new formula, so we may see a VR adaptation for the PS VR (or the upcoming PS VR 2) at some point. Capcom hasn’t investigated whether Resident Evil 4 VR will be released on any other headset outside of Facebook’s own Oculus, so it could be an exclusive product for the platform.

During the showcase, Capcom also dropped a new trailer for Resident Evil Village, announcing the return of Mercenaries Mode for the upcoming title. Resi 7 has skipped the mode completely, so fans of fast-paced gameplay will be happy about a comeback. However, this time there are some changes such as: B. Granting special skills to players and offering a break between areas in in-game shops where they can purchase and upgrade items.
