The fourth installment of Resident Evil is set to be re-released in virtual reality (VR) on the ‘Oculus Quest 2’ headset.
The series publisher Capcom and Oculus parent company Facebook are collaborating with the independent studio Armature on the VR remake of ‘Resident Evil 4’. Not much has been disclosed about the project so far, but early footage hints towards a first-person adaptation of the classic third-person shooter.
Capcom announced the news during a ‘Resident Evil’ showcase wherein it also released a new trailer for the non-VR ‘Resident Evil Village.’ Facebook Reality Labs will reveal more information about the game on April 21 during its own VR showcase for the Quest.
However, this is not the first time that the makers of ‘Resident Evil’ experiment with VR. The 2017 first-person game ‘Resident Evil 7’ was supported on the PlayStation VR headset, making the game a lot scarier and tougher to play. A VR-only demo for the game was also released by Capcom.
Nevertheless, this will probably be the first complete ‘Resident Evil’ game designed for VR, specifically for Facebook’s standalone Oculus Quest 2.
