Capcom has found another platform to bring the survival horror classic Resident Evil 4 to, as the game is coming to virtual reality on the Oculus Quest 2. Revealed in the most recent Resident Evil Showcase event, this new port will change the gameplay style from third-person shooting to first-person action, giving players an experience similar to the most recent Resident Evil titles. Players will now only be able to see Leon Kennedy when his arms are visible.
According to Mike Verdu, Vice President of content at Facebook Reality Labs, this new port will "bring new richness and depth to the Resident Evil experience you know and love." The project is being developed as a collaboration between Capcom, Oculus Studios, and Armature Studio. At the moment, we don't know a huge amount else about this newest version of Resident Evil 4, but more information will be given at the Oculus Gaming Showcase on April 21.
This won't be the first time that Resident Evil 4 will be ported to a new platform, as it has been playable on numerous mainline consoles from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo since its initial release as a GameCube exclusive. However, this will only be the second time the Resident Evil series has ventured into VR, after 2017's Resident Evil 7 biohazard was available to play on Sony's PlayStation VR headset.
