Got something new for ya, stranger! Resident Evil™ 4 VR Mode is welcoming players to enter the world of survival horror on Dec. 8, 2023. Step into the boots of Leon S. Kennedy and experience his action-packed journey closer than ever with PlayStation®VR2. This immersive new way to enjoy the award-winning title will be available as free DLC for all PlayStation®5 owners of Resident Evil™ 4.

A free demo for Resident Evil 4 VR Mode is creeping to the PlayStation™ Store the same day. The Resident Evil 4 VR Mode Gameplay Demo provides a 360° look at the game’s opening and new features, including the Shooting Range, where players can experiment with weapons and get a feel for the realistic controls.

Resident Evil 4 VR Mode supports the full main story campaign and delivers an added level of immersion to Leon S. Kennedy’s harrowing rescue mission. The experience lets players see the terrifying world directly through Leon’s eyes and soak in his surroundings with the 4K HDR display of PlayStation VR2. Resident Evil 4 VR Mode further enhances the atmosphere with 3D audio so players can hear the threats lurking around every corner.

In addition to grounding players in this hostile environment, Resident Evil 4 VR Mode heightens the realism with PlayStation VR2 Sense™ technology. The intuitive controls provide new ways to interact with the world. Weapons can be handled with natural motions, including unique gestures for reloading specific firearms, such as handguns, shotguns, and rifles. This also extends to the game’s enhanced knife action for those close encounters.

Resident Evil 4 VR Mode also features a Shooting Range mode that provides a training ground to help players hone their combat skills by testing out the aiming, firing, and reload mechanics for each weapon.

Resident Evil 4 is available now across PlayStation 5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. The title is also set to debut on iPhone 15 Pro and all iPads and Macs with the M1 chip or later on Dec. 20, 2023.
