Despite the fact that it is sixteen years old, the horror gaming community, as well as gamers in general, have begun to discuss about Resident Evil 4, especially since there have been some rumors that an official remake may be in the works, but the studio has not revealed anything.
It’s hardly unexpected that fans want a remake or remaster of the fourth iteration, which is the most well-known RE game in the series. Until then, there’s always the VR version to look forward to, and recent developments have revealed a release date.
Resident Evil 4 would be coming to the Oculus Quest 2 at some point, it was revealed back in April. There wasn’t much information available at the time, but according to an IGN article, this port would be available on October 21 for the VR headset. The article also includes a link to a brief video that consists of some familiar aspects from the 2005 game, but clearly from a first-person, virtual perspective.
While the VR version of Resident Evil 4 will maintain all of the original game’s famous characteristics, there will be one big difference. Players will now be able to access their weapons and health supplies straight from their “virtual body.”
To accommodate the new perspective and interactive aspects, the puzzle pieces and typewriter save spots have been tweaked as well. While it may not be quite the same as a remake to some, it should nonetheless give a fresh take on one of the franchise’s most popular films. Of course, this implies that it is only available to Oculus Quest 2 owners. It’s unclear whether additional VR ports will be made accessible.
A prospective Resident Evil 4 remake has been hinted so extensively at this point that it would be irresponsible of Capcom not to recognize it. It’s conceivable that the corporation is working on one right now, but until official sources confirm this, supporters can only guess and cross their fingers.
Even though RE4 VR is only available on the Oculus Quest 2, it gives the classic a fresh lease on life. The fact that it is only available to a tiny portion of the gaming community is sure to have certain downsides, but it will at least keep the game on people’s minds for the time being. As a result, there’s a chance that rumors of an official remake or remaster may persist.
