There is nothing more fitting than a horror video game and an October release date. Such is the case with resident Evil 4 VR, which has now been confirmed to be releasing next month, offering a whole new way to play this classic survival horror title – though only for those with an Oculus Quest 2.
Making the announcement through a new gameplay trailer, it was officially confirmed that Resident Evil 4 VR will be launching on the 21st of October. While an apt release date – being so close to Halloween – what was disappointing was the confirmation that the game will be exclusive to the Oculus Quest 2.
While it was previously known that the game would be a Quest exclusive, cutting out the many early adopters of the platform is unfortunate – even if it was necessary to do so. Resident Evil 4 is notorious for being released on every platform ever, and so to see the VR version made exclusive is disappointing to those with a PCVR headset. Still, hopefully it is given a wider release later on.
For those who do own an Oculus Quest 2, Resident Evil 4 VR is looking to be the biggest revamp of the game yet, being built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 4. This means that certain elements have been tweaked slightly in order to accomodate the platform, including all of the puzzles. How this will translate to VR will be interesting to see. Hopefully it manages to capture the same feelings as the game’s original release.
