Oculus has announced that its VR version of Capcom’s survival horror classic, Resident Evil 4, will be released on October 21, 2021. The game will be available to play exclusively on Oculus’ all-in-one Quest 2 VR headsets, which are wireless and start at $299.
Here’s a gameplay trailer demonstrating what Resident Evil 4 looks like in its all-new first-person perspective.
Standing or seated, players will enjoy plenty of comfort options. Support for both teleportation and room-scale movement means you can explore the game’s world your way. You’ll still move by using the analog stick, but Armature has added a full upper-body rig on top of Leon’s character to combine his movement with the dual-handed interactivity achieved with Touch controllers. Weapons and items have been re-engineered as physical objects, so you can pick them up and interact with them. Lastly, rather than navigating a menu to swap out weapons, you can grab them off your body.
Resident Evil 4 for Oculus Quest 2 was developed in partnership with Oculus Studios and Armature Studio. Armature’s other works include Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate and the PlayStation Vita port of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
