Resident Evil 4 will be the latest Resident Evil title to get a VR mode. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was released with the launch of PlayStation VR and features the full game playable in VR. Resident Evil Village’s VR mode follows suit and is the full game playable in VR with all the new bells and whistles that PlayStation VR2 provides.
Players will experience Resident Evil Village in stunning detail through PS VR2’s 4K HDR display and eye-tracking technology. 3D audio effects further enhance the atmosphere that adds texture to the environment and allows listeners to hear the horrors that lurk around every corner. Players will interact with their surroundings like never before with PS VR2’s Sense Controllers. Natural motions will mirror Ethan’s on-screen movements. This includes blocking enemy attacks by lifting Ethan’s arms, reloading firearms with realistic actions, and being able to explore while holding a map. Players will also be able to dual-wield weapons, store and retrieve items inside Ethan’s coat, and perform a range of other tactile gestures like unlatching doors and healing wounds with medicine bottles.
Dive headset-first into the world of survival horror.
