The re-release of the of the fourth installment of the ‘Resident evil’ will be in Virtual reality (VR) on the ‘Oculus Quest 2’ headset.
The VR remake of ‘Resident Evil 4’ is going to be a collaboration between series publisher Capcom, Oculus parent company Facebook, and the independent studio Armature. Not many details about the collaboration were offered by the published Capcom, however, early footage shows a first-person adaptation of the classic third-person shooter.
It was announced by the Capcom, during a ‘Resident Evil’ showcase that also included a new trailer for the non-VR ‘Resident Evil Village’. On April 21, more details about the game will be revealed by Oculus and Facebook Reality Labs, when Facebook is holding its own VR showcase for the Quest.
According to a report, the ‘Resident Evil’ series has tried VR before. The 2017 game ‘Resident Evil 7’ let the users play the entire game with a PlayStation VR headset, making the game scarier but also more difficult to play. A VR-only demo got the game was released by Capcom.
It’s special this time, as this is the first full ‘Resident Evil’ game that seems specifically designed for VR – and specifically for Facebook’s standalone Oculus Quest 2. Although it is still not clear if Resident Evil 4 will also support the original Quest, Oculus has pushed to make Quest games compatible with both headsets in the past.
