Resident Evil 4 VR Mode supports the full main story campaign and delivers an added level of immersion to Leon S. Kennedy’s harrowing rescue mission. The experience lets players see the terrifying world directly through Leon’s eyes and soak in his surroundings with the 4K HDR display of PlayStation VR2. Resident Evil 4 VR Mode further enhances the atmosphere with 3D audio so players can hear the threats lurking around every corner.
In addition to grounding players in this hostile environment, Resident Evil 4 VR Mode heightens the realism with PlayStation VR2 Sense™ technology. The intuitive controls provide new ways to interact with the world. Weapons can be handled with natural motions, including unique gestures for reloading specific firearms, such as handguns, shotguns, and rifles. This also extends to the game’s enhanced knife action for those close encounters.
Resident Evil 4 VR Mode also features a Shooting Range mode that provides a training ground to help players hone their combat skills by testing out the aiming, firing, and reload mechanics for each weapon.
Resident Evil 4 is available now across PlayStation 5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. The title is also set to debut on iPhone 15 Pro and all iPads and Macs with the M1 chip or later on Dec. 20, 2023.
Resident Evil 4 follows Leon S. Kennedy six years after surviving the biological disaster of Raccoon City. Now an agent reporting directly to the president of the United States, Leon is dispatched to an isolated European village to rescue the president’s missing daughter. There, he discovers a terrifying fervor beyond reason that grips the local populace. Resident Evil 4 preserves the essence of the original while using Capcom’s proprietary RE ENGINE to deliver modernized gameplay, a reimagined storyline, and vividly detailed graphics. Beyond the main campaign, the fan-favorite bonus mode The Mercenaries is available as free DLC. Players can also see another side of the adventure in the Separate Ways DLC, which follows Ada Wong on a secret mission that answers lingering questions from the main story. Resident Evil 4 has garnered widespread acclaim and sold over 5 million units worldwide.
