Resident Evil Village VR Mode Showcased in new gameplay Trailer

Resident Evil Village VR Mode

Capcom showed off gameplay from Resident Evil Village VR Mode in its latest trailer for the game. VR support for the game, which originally released in 2021, will be made available for free via a DLC update. The mode launches on the same day as the release of the PSVR 2 hardware: February 22, 2023.

Check out the trailer below.

The Resident Evil Village VR Mode gameplay trailer shows off scenes from the game, but rendered using some of the telltale signs of VR-equipped play.

For example, protagonist and player character Ethan Winters moves his viewpoint freely and independently of his limbs, much like a person with a VR headset and individual hand controllers would. Similarly, holds weapons and can aim them by holding them up to his eyeline. A brief shot of menu controls in VR is also seen, where players can equip weapons and equipment using a virtual cursor.

Resident Evil Village VR mode also includes things like dual-wielding, where Ethan holds and fires a different weapon in each hand, unarmed combat, and the ability to transfer weapons from one hand to another. A firing range will also allow them to test out the different weapons available.

According to Capcom, those interested in trying the game out on their PSVR 2 hardware (when it launches) will be able to do so through a playable demo, which launches on the same day as the DLC.

Resident Evil Village is available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC, as well as on Nintendo Switch as a cloud version. The VR Mode is currently exclusive to the PS5 version of the game, and will require the use of the PSVR 2 hardware.
