Following in the footsteps of the original game, the Resident Evil 4 remake will also get a VR version of the experience. 

Capcom has announced that a VR version of the Resident Evil 4 remake is in the works. It will be a free DLC only available for the PlayStation 5 version of the game (thus available only for PSVR2). 

The announcement was made in the following Tweet:

At the moment no release date has been set for the DLC. There is also no word if it will be made available for PC (via HTC Vive or Valve Index).

Resident Evil 4 will launch for the PS4 and Next-Gen consoles along with the PC on March 24th, 2023. Players will once again take on the role of Leon S. Kennedy, now with the United States Secret Service, as he is tasked with rescuing the President’s daughter from a mysterious cult that plans to use a weaponized parasite to take over the world. 

The original Resident Evil 4 was released in 2005 first for the Nintendo Game Cube followed by the PlayStation 2 several months later. It has since been re-released on every console along with the PC.

Those wondering how it will play out in VR should give Resident Evil 4 VR a playthrough. This is a VR adaptation of the original game developed for Meta Quest 2.
