The fourth Resident Evil game is easily one of if not the most iconic entry in the series, and inspired a generation of shooters thereafter. It has also turned into Capcom’s Skyrim, with numerous re-releases on different platforms, and this time it’s bringing the horror to VR exclusively on the Oculus Quest 2.
In my eyes, Resident Evil is the perfect franchise for a VR port: as Horror works tremendously well in VR, and coupled with the shooting mechanics, varied enemies, and light inventory management (except for RE4), I’m surprised we haven’t seen more REVR re-releases/remakes. Either way, get ready for Resident Evil 4 VR on October 21st:
Unfortunately, there’s still no word whether this exclusivity is permanent or limited-time. As many have pointed out, RE4 was originally exclusive to the Game Cube, but can now be found on anything with an electronic display it seems. So there is certainly hope for PCVR users (and PSVR), but don’t expect it anytime soon.
*Note: the poll below includes RE7, even though it already had a VR version on PlayStation, though it wasn’t a proper VR port like RE4 is.
