‘Resident Evil 4 VR’ Arriving Just In Time For Halloween

Check out the latest trailer for the upcoming VR survival horror game here.

During the Resident Evil Showcase this past April, Capcom revealed Resident Evil 4 VR, a full VR port of the classic 2005 survival horror game coming soon to Oculus Quest 2 headsets. Earlier today, Oculus revealed an official October release date alongside a new trailer that offers us our best look yet at the highly-anticipated action-horror experience.

Developed in collaboration with Oculus Studios and Armature Studio, Resident Evil 4 VR has you stepping into the role of Leon Kennedy, a seasoned American Federal Agent tasked with rescuing the president’s daughter from a group of psychotic cultists based out of an unnamed village in rural Spain. Along the way, you’ll battle a never-ending horde of pitchfork-wielding villagers infected by a mind-controlling parasite, solve a wide assortment of ancient puzzles, and go head-to-head with a handful of grotesque monsters, each more horrific than the last.

Unlike past versions of the game, Resident Evil 4 VR will, for the first time, allow players to experience the game in VR from a first-person perspective. Instead of a gamepad, Leon is controlled using the Oculus Touch controllers, promising a whole new level of immersion as you physically cut enemies with your combat knife and cock your pump shotgun.

The latest trailer offers a closer look at the bleak environments you’ll be traversing as well as the many different enemies you’ll come face-to-face with, from the Armadura, Plaga-possessed suits of armor, to the El Gigante, massive trolls capable of delivering massive damage.

Resident Evil 4 VR arrives on Oculus Quest 2 headsets on October 21st. No word yet on an official price.
