You can almost feel the chainsaw on your eyes
We are a sliver under a month away from the launch of Resident Evil 4, easily one of the most highly anticipated remakes of all time — And for those of you who want a truly immersive experience with the Los Illuminados, Capcom is developing an immersive virtual reality experience for the PS5 edition and its related PlayStation VR 2 (PSVR 2) hardware.
“VR mode for Resident Evil 4 has started development! Stay tuned for more details!” reads a new tweet from the Japanese Resident Evil Twitter account, before later adding “The VR mode of Resident Evil 4 will be distributed as free DLC for PlayStation5 / PlayStation VR 2.”

One can only assume that the new mode for Resident Evil 4 will see players go face-to-face with some of the terrifying mutants of the iconic survival horror title, which first freaked out video game fans the world over on its initial release, way back in 2005. If you ever fancied looking one of the horrifying Regenerators, dead in the eye in full 3D, then you’ll soon have the opportunity.
Also, what’s wrong with you?
Resident Evil 4 VR will not be the only virtual reality experience coming to the Capcom franchise this year, as Resident Evil Village is receiving its own virtual reality equivalent today on PlayStation 5. Resident Evil Village VR lets players step into the shoes of Ethan Winters as he goes toe-to-toe with terrifying characters such as Heisenberg, Lady Dimitrescu, and, of course, that baby. Yikes.
Resident Evil 4 launches March 24 on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox Series X.
