If you’re a fan of horror/zombie games, it doesn’t really get any more iconic than Capcom’s Resident Evil series. The games have proven themselves to be pretty scary and that’s when you play it on your TV, so imagine if you were in an actual zombie survival situation, how do you think you might fare?
If you’re curious about that, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Resident Evil 4’s VR remake will be arriving on the Oculus Quest 2 on the 21st of October. The remake was originally announced by Capcom back in April earlier this year, so it’s good that we now have an official date to look forward to, and right in time for Halloween too!
The game has been remade for the Oculus Quest 2 by Oculus Studios and Armature Studio where it will put players in the virtual shoes of Leon. It will be a first-person experience so unlike some other Resident Evil titles where you play over the shoulder of your character, this will all be upfront and personal.
There is support for physical movements to pick up and use weapons, so it should be a rather immersive experience. It will be exclusive to the Oculus Quest 2 so if you own a different VR headset, you’ll have to sit this one out.
