‘Resident Evil 4’ VR Mode Coming to PSVR 2 This Winter


During PlayStation’s State of Play gaming showcase, the company showed off some new footage of the official PSVR 2 mode of Resident Evil 4 (2023) remake. Coming as free DLC, the game’s VR mode is now set arrive sometime this winter.

Update (September 15th, 2023): Capcom announced that the PSVR 2 mode for Resident Evil 4 remake is coming this winter. There’s no specific date yet, although the free DLC’s winter launch window could mean we’ll actually see it in early 2024 since the company might otherwise have announced it as holiday 2023. Whatever the case, we’ll keep you posted.

The studio also announced The Separate Ways DLC is coming September 21st, which follows the story of Ada Wong, who during the main game enigmatically appears and disappears throughout, and the addition of Wong and Albert Wesker to The Mercenaries DLC. The original article announcing the VR mode’s first gameplay trailer follows below:

Original Article (May 24th, 2023): There’s no news on when to expect the game’s VR mode, which has been previously confirmed to arrive as a free DLC upgrade.

Just as we expected with the inclusion of PSVR 2’s more advanced motion controllers, in a PS blogpost the creators say you’ll be able to swing around the game’s iconic knife and wield Leon’s powerful and varied arsenal with an immersive and authentic feel.

Resident Evil 4’s VR mode is still in development, the studio says, so we’ll be waiting on more info and official release date.

  • This looks incredibly cool

    This looks stunning with the dual wielding and knife blocking.
    RE8 on psvr2 is one of the best VR experiences you can have and is on a par with Alyx and this looks on the same level. Really great to see some AAA VR titles coming our way. The reviews for the RE4 remake were incredible so the VR version should take the game to a whole new level.

    I’ve waited to play it so my first play through will be in VR. Cant wait.

      Yeah. PS VR 2 is definitely bringing the high fidelity and AAA in VR.

      Will be my first time playing it and it will be in VR.

      • ViRGiN

        i’ve heard the very same thing from you about PCVR.

        it might take a week. might take 10 years.

        • Ookami

          cope harder

          • ViRGiN

            i’m trying, but the pcvr takeover is imminent!

          • Ookami

            calm down. There’s no apocalyptic event incoming

          • ApocalypseShadow

            Since he’s blocked on my phone, I didn’t see his comment until today on my PC in September. That’s how irrelevant he is.

            He would have to prove his statement or be called a liar but it wouldn’t change his ridiculous comments from being ridiculous.

            Since I only play on console, his statement would be incorrect.

            But PC does have high fidelity VR. Funny thing in his support for Quest 2, it will never have high fidelity on its own in a week or 10 years.

  • Ookami

    Looks amazing!

    • ViRGiN

      The power of not being tethered to steamvr does wonders!

      • Ookami

        your brain really can’t comprehend that other people aren’t platform elitist like yourself, huh

  • Jeremiah Tothenations

    It better come to PCVR, exclusivity sucks.

    • ViRGiN

      You mean PCVR or STEAMVR?

      • Jeremiah Tothenations

        I’d possibly play it elsewhere, but preferably Steam VR, I don’t buy games elsewhere usually.

        • ViRGiN

          That’s just sad

          • Jeremiah Tothenations

            Not really, Steam is by far the best store on PC, I’m glad there’s competition and all and the PC platform is the best by far for gaming, but the competition falls short atm.

            I do own well over 300 games on the Epic Store though, all free of course :p
