Capcom enhances Resident Evil Four VR on Oculus Quest 2
Virtual reality boasts many virtues, and Resident Evil 4’s VR resurrection gives a second wind to one of the best horror games around. Since launch, fans of the series have loved Capcom and Armature Studios’ Banana approach to survival gameplay, and the game’s first post-launch update includes a number of convenient tweaks.
Rather than adding new content to Resident Evil 4 on the Oculus Quest 2, Armature Studios’ first overhaul focuses on mobility, comfort and improved gameplay. For starters, you can now control protagonist Leon Kennedy with hand gestures, and players can assign movement to either the left or right controller.
The Quest 4 version of Resident Evil 4 is also now more accessible as you can now adjust the waist and chest height parameters to suit your personal needs. The update also reintroduces the ability to change the color of your laser sight, which is possible via modding in other PC versions of the game.
It’s still early for Resident Evil 4’s VR debut, but the game is already giving fans a reason to get the Oculus Quest 2. Although this update brings nothing new to the table in terms of content, it is a step in the right direction when it comes to accessibility and accessibility. However, if you’re on the lookout for new content, one of the original version’s minigames, The Mercenaries, is coming to the VR version sometime this year.
Resident Evil 4 VR is currently only available on Oculus Quest 2, so you won’t be able to play it on older Quest devices or any of the other best VR headsets out there. The game will likely be available on both Oculus Quest 3 (Meta Quest) and the company’s Project Cambria, so you can wait for Meta’s next-gen lineup to launch.
