During PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast, Capcom revealed ‘Resident Evil™ Village’ will soon deliver an even more up close and personal experience by creeping onto PlayStation VR2.
Set a few years after the events of ‘Resident Evil 7 Biohazard,”Resident Evil Village’ follows the Winters family through a new nightmare where Ethan is hunted by relentless new foes in an isolated village. ‘Resident Evil Village’ continues Ethan’s adventure in the first-person view with photorealistic visuals that take survival horror to thrilling new heights with the power of Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine.
The story mode for the award-winning eighth main entry in the ‘Resident Evil’ series is in development for PlayStation VR2 on PlayStation 5. Ethan Winters’ terrifying tale will deepen the immersion by utilizing the new headset’s 4KD HDR display, eye tracking, 3D audio, and other advanced features. The journey through Castle Dimitrescu and the surrounding village is more intense than ever before when experienced in VR, drawing players into a hyper-realistic world that virtually feels tangible.
The experience will include support for PlayStation VR2 Sense™ technology and introduce new ways to interact with the world of ‘Resident Evil Village.’ These controllers empower players to perform intuitive actions, such as raising their arms to guard against enemy attacks. The VR campaign also introduces other new gameplay elements, such as the ability for Ethan to dual wield weapons.
