We already knew Resident Evil 4 was getting PSVR2 support in the future, but we didn’t know the extent of it. However, a trailer during today’s PS Showcase has confirmed that, just like with Resident Evil Village, the entirety of the Capcom remake will be playable in virtual reality – and, yes, it’ll be another completely free DLC.
Capcom’s Edvin Edso explained: “Because the game takes place in VR, the perspective changes from third person to a fully immersive first-person view. From Leon’s point of view, you can really take in the details and atmosphere of the environment.” Obviously, this perspective shift also transforms the gameplay, as you’ll be tackling Ganados head-on.
All of the gameplay and weapons have been tailored to the PSVR2 Sense Controllers, and we suspect mechanically there’ll be a lot of crossover with Resident Evil Village. Of course, it’s genuinely exciting to see another classic Capcom campaign being ported to PSVR2 in its entirety – at this point, we can probably say the Japanese publisher is supporting the headset better than Sony!

Wow!! Looks amazing and will be getting it but still haven't dared getting past the first ten minutes of village! 😅
Will we be allowed to earn trophies this time?
Amazing. I haven’t started the remake yet. I’ll hold off now and wait for this mode to be completed. Looks great!
Resident Evil works so well with VR!
Disappointed it’s a DLC and not a new SKU because this seemed to be the reason Village had no support for the trophy campaign. Very much hoping they don’t have the same issue here as I haven’t played 4 before and would like to do so in VR for the first time.
I was waiting for this before getting RE4 so I'm glad it's on the way.
Bought RE4Remake day one, but I still haven't gotten around to play it beyond the demo, which i've plowed through a handful of times. Glad i held off, seeing as how VR Mode will offer the main campaign in it's entirety. This is going to be frikkin incredible. Being able to pin point and aim freely at will while popping Genando's and Knife Parrying John Whick style with motion controls is going to put the traditional shackled and semi cumbersome controls to complete shame....
Aside from being transported into the world of RE4 and getting a glimpse of all of it's life sized sick baddies in stereoscopic 3D. This is going to be one hell of a roller coaster ride from start to finish. This is going to be the ultimate must-have PSVR2 experience.
When's the release date btw!?
This looks like the entire game. In VR. THAT would be incredible! And please, please update RE7 to PSVR2.
I must say I wasn't expecting that, given that the wording in the original announcement was "VR content also in development". Sounded like DLC, with a total lack of commitment for full game support.
It makes sense though, given the brilliant work they've done with Village. Probably the best thing to come out of that Showcase.
Fookin brilliant. Capcom and Sony have been awesome. Wish I hadn't played this flat screen now!
amazing, just what l hoped for. l still havent played village or re4 yet so both will be tackled in VR! also hoping for psvr2 support for re7 too and, stop me if im wrong, but if they can do re4 on psvr2 then surely 2&3 remakes could also be updated as they pretty much run the same way.... ? that would be a pretty awesome marathon hitting 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8 in VR!!? 😃
@EnragedGibbon I was the same but you should definitely go for it. I got more comfortable and it’s been amazing so far.
@NachoCheese Haha, I will try again at some point, preferably in daylight with people in the room, get too scared in my old age! God forbid the cat walks past and gets a boot as well! 🤣 Cheers bud! 👍
They didn't even mention Firewall. Ryan seems to be currently residing on cloud cuckoo.
@EnragedGibbon daylight helped me, no joke 👍 …have fun buddy.
