Since we've technically already had a VR version of Resident Evil 4 released (albeit the original version for Oculus Quest) we have a pretty good idea of the kind of thing we can expect rom this new mode. Just like Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - which got a VR mode in the Gold Edition of the game - and Resident Evil Village - that has a VR mode for PSVR 2 on the way - the VR mode for the Resident Evil 4 Remake will be launched a little while after the main game, hence why it's only started development now. 

A VR mode isn't the only new thing coming to the Resi remake. Ahead of the game's imminent release, it's been revealed that the Resident Evil 4 Remake is adding side quests and ditching QTEs. It's not all unfamiliar though, as Resident Evil 4's most dreaded encounter is returning in the remake.

If you didn't know, the Resident Evil 4 Remake is due to release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on March 24, 2023 - that's just a little over a month away!

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
