Resident Evil 4 is generally agreed to be one of the best titles in the franchise, with the game still standing the test of time. Just as how RE4 took advantage of fringe technologies at the time, the game is once again stepping into new territory, as a VR version of Resident Evil 4 has officially been announced.
Making the announcement at last night’s Resident Evil Showcase, Resident Evil 4: VR is a fully translated version of the original Resident Evil 4, but made to work entirely in VR. Unlike the original game, this VR port shifts the perspective to first person, immersing players into the world of RE4 in a new way.
Currently, the game has only officially be confirmed to be coming to the Oculus Quest 2, and while details are sparse at the moment, it has been confirmed that more of Resident Evil 4: VR will be shown off at the upcoming Oculus Gaming Showcase on the 21st of April – where hopefully we will hear about further platform support.
Resident Evil 4: VR now marks the second Resident Evil game to be translated to the medium – after RE7. It will be interesting to see what Capcom’s long-term plans for VR are, and whether all previous games will eventually get the VR treatment. Hopefully we get to hear much more at the upcoming Oculus Gaming Showcase.
