Capcom is remaking Resident Evil 4 in VR on the Oculus Quest 2

Get ready to run from Spanish peasants all over again.

What you need to know

  • Capcom is working on numerous Resident Evil projects, including a new mainline game and a Netflix show.
  • It showed off these new projects at a special Resident Evil showcase stream.
  • The final reveal was of Resident Evil 4 VR, to be released on the Oculus Quest 2.

Capcom revealed during today's Resident Evil showcase that one of the upcoming RE projects is a VR remake of Resident Evil 4 for the Oculus Quest 2. We'll know more about it next week, but it appears to be a complete reimagining of the game for VR, though we don't have very much to go on.

A Resi 4 VR game has been rumored to be in the works for a while, with documents about the game having been leaked in the massive data breach at Capcom last November. We now know Armature Studio will develop the game with assistance from Oculus Studios.

So far, we know very little of the game beyond what was shown in the trailer. The locations we can see look very recognizable, especially the village from the game's first hour. You can see Leon going up against a band of the Spanish villagers and their torches and pitchforks. It appears to be the exact same game as you remember, only in first-person rather than third.

The graphics don't exactly look remade -- if anything, the models resemble those from the game's original release a bit too closely. We can also see Leon typing on keyboards, turning a crank, and performing a little knife and gun juggling act I don't think he did in the original game.

That's all we could glean from the short preview. We'll be getting more information about the game during the Oculus show on April 21, which will be available to watch on Twitch and the Oculus Facebook page. It's unlikely the game will be released ahead of Resident Evil Village, which comes out on May 7.

There have been rumors of a remake of Resident Evil 4 in the style of the RE2 and RE3 remakes for a while now. As yet, we can't confirm whether this is the only RE4 project in the works, but it was the only one shown at the showcase.

How to watch England vs India: Live stream Fourth Test cricket online

Having bounced back from defeat with an impressive win in the third Test at Headingley, Joe Root's men will be hoping they can now forge an advantage as the series moves to London - watch every ball of this fourth Test with our England vs India live stream guide below. England managed to dismiss India for just 78 on Day 1 in a scintillating bowling display, but there was even better to come from the hosts' top-order batting, with all of the top three managing to notch up half-centuries in their first innings. Skipper Root meanwhile continued his extraordinary 2021 form, clocking up yet another three-figure score. With a buoyant home side now hoping to carry on where they left off, India captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri must unravel how their attack was so routinely undone with the new ball last time out.
