The biggest VR game of the year has without a doubt been Resident Evil 4 VR, which launched last month exclusively on the Quest and Quest 2 headsets. So far, the game appears to be doing well, having gone on to become the fasted selling game on the headset.
Meta/Oculus touted Resident Evil 4 VR as the Quest 2's flagship game for 2021. One month on from release, the game has been crowned as the fastest selling game on the headset to date, and has gone on to be nominated as one of the best VR games of the year at The Game Awards.
In 2022, Resident Evil 4 VR will get even bigger, as ‘The Mercenaries' update has been announced. This will be a free update for all owners of the game, pitting players up against an on-going horde of zombies with the goal of getting as many kills as possible before time runs out. If you survive, you'll escape the map on a helicopter.
In the month following launch, Resident Evil 4 has become the 17th most rated game on the Quest platform. According to Road to VR's estimations, the game has generated around $8.5 million in revenue to date.
KitGuru Says: The Quest 2 continues to be the go-to for newcomers to VR and Resident Evil 4 appears to be succeeding as a flagship title. Have any of you tried Resident Evil 4 VR on the Quest yet?
