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 New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers.
