It’s a happy coincidence that Resident Evil Village‘s VR mode won Best VR/AR Game last night, as today Capcom has released the free VR Mode DLC for their Resident Evil 4 remake. Available exclusively on the PlayStation VR2, there’s also the VR Mode Gameplay Demo available for download via the PlayStation Store.
Resident Evil 4 VR Mode puts players directly to into the game’s nightmarish world allowing them to truly become Leon S. Kennedy. Players can now get up close and personal with Ganados and the other frightening foes. The vividly rendered environments look even more tangible now, thanks to the PlayStation VR2’s 4K HDR display, and the 3D audio completes the immersion.
The PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers allow for immersive inputs across puzzle-solving, exploration, and combat. Every weapon and item is represented in detail, with haptic feedback making each firearm feel unique right down to the trigger. Weapons also include specific mechanics that are performed with authentic gestures, such as reloading shotguns with pumping actions or swinging Leon’s knife to execute parries and melee attacks.
As for the gameplay demo, players who have yet to pick up Resident Evil 4 can get a taste of the game’s action-packed opening. The demo also includes the mode’s new Shooting Range, which shows off the VR controls and realistic weapon mechanics.
Resident Evil 4 is now available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam. The title is also coming to iPhone 15 Pro models and all iPads and Macs with the M1 chip or later on December 20.
