Resident Evil 4 VR port for Oculus Quest launches Oct. 21st

This port will deliver the classic Resident Evil 4 experience in VR for the first time.

It’s almost time to head back into rural Spain and take down some zombies — this time in virtual reality. Announced back in April, the VR port of Resident Evil 4 designed exclusively for the Oculus Quest 2 is launching on Oct. 21. This port will bring the acclaimed third-person horror-action shooter into VR for the first time.

We also received a new gameplay trailer today that shows off the game in action. The trailer demonstrates many iconic scenes from the game which are all familiar yet different thanks to the new perspective.

All about the Resident Evil 4 port for Oculus Quest 2

RE4 was originally released on the Nintendo GameCube in 2005 and has been ported to just about every major console and OS since then. It shifted the series away from its survival horror roots and spiced up the blend with more action elements. It set the stage for Resident Evil going forward and maintains its legacy as a beloved title, culminating in this latest release for Oculus Quest.

Of course, this isn’t the first Resident Evil title playable in virtual reality. Resident Evil VII: Biohazard, the first title in the series to shift to first-person, received both a standard release and a VR version at launch. Considering Capcom created the game with the intention of emphasizing horror again, setting it in VR made total sense.

Now, another piece of Resident Evil history is getting the VR treatment. Resident Evil 4 for Oculus Quest will certainly bring a more action-heavy experience, but it’ll be great to jump back into this title once again with a new twist on it this time.
