resident Evil took a decisive leap with its seventh installment since in its version for PlayStation added a mode that gave us the ability to play the story within PS VR that the Japanese had then. An experience that changed everything and is now being repeated with villagesince Sony is preparing a new model of glasses for the beginning of 2023. Will you be able to endure the terror of such an experience?
Horror like you’ve never seen it before
The latest installment of this long-running franchise came to us last May 2021. Resident Evil Village is a title in which, basically, we must rescue the protagonist’s daughter who has been kidnapped by a sinister lady and for whom we will be forced to enter a mysterious town filled to the brim with witches, vampires, men wolf, devil dolls and a long, long etc. of creatures that it would be better not to approach.
Well, for a few months now we have known that this eighth installment will have a version for VR glasses and that it would come when new hardware from Sony landed in stores. Well, there is already official confirmation of when that moment will occur in which it will be possible to revive Resident Evil VIII from another point of view. An absolutely terrifying one that very few users are able to endure without running away. And we do not say it allegorically, it is so in reality.
However, the bad news is that users with a PS4 and first generation PS VR will have no choice to enjoy this immersive mode of resident Evil so it will be necessary for us to get hold of the new PS5 viewer to enjoy it. A pity, but we imagine that Capcom will have its reasons for not having taken the step.
Release date confirmed
As has been rumored in recent times, Capcom has not hesitated to offer an official date for the launch of this VR upgrade of Resident Evil Village which will take place on February 22, 2023, at the same time that PS VR 2 arrives in stores around the world. In this way, those who have already purchased the game since its launch in 2021 will not have to drop another euro to live the experience from another point of view and will be able to immerse themselves in it completely free of charge.
Please note that while it is possible to connect early PS VR to a PS5 (via a camera adapter cable), this virtual reality mode of Resident Evil Village will not be able to run on them so they are left out of the compatibility registry. A measure that, as we previously indicated in the case of PS4, is surely justified by the enormous change that the new hardware that Sony will put on sale in February entails: new controls, more sensors such as eye tracking and the absence of a camera for track head movements.
And you? Do you plan to play with Resident Evil Village in that new VR mode?
