New game to launch on Oculus Quest 2 VR headset
Facebook‘s Oculus Studios began streaming a new video for the new virtual reality version of the Resident Evil 4 game for the Oculus Quest 2 headset system on Monday, and the video reveals that the game will launch on October 21.
CAPCOM partnered with Facebook and developer Armature for the new version. The game will be played in a new first-person perspective, with movement handled via analog stick. Players can move their upper body independently, and can use the Touch controller to pick up items and interact with them.

The company has since ported the game to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, iOS and Android devices, and PC. The game most recently released on Switch in May 2019. The game’s story follows Leon S. Kennedy as he tries to rescue the U.S. president’s daughter.
Resident Evil Village is the eighth entry in CAPCOM‘s Resident Evil survival horror game series. The game launched on May 7 for PS4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (Steam and Stadia) platforms.
