Is the remake of Resident Evil 4 just not quite scary or immersive enough for you? Just wait until next week, when if you own the game on PS5 as well as a PS VR2 headset you’ll be able to experience it like never before.

Capcom has today announced that the VR edition of Resident Evil 4 will launch on PS VR2 next week, on 8th December. Even better, the DLC that enables it will be free to all owners of Resident Evil 4 on PS5. If you already own the game and a PS VR2 headset, then, you’re all set.

Jump into Resident Evil 4’s VR mode and you’ll find that you can play the full campaign through Leon’s eyes, adding a new layer of immersion to the game. It’s an experience additionally heightened by the use of 3D audio as well as Sense technology, which means you can interact with items in-game in a more realistic manner, including your weapons.

You can accurately slash with a knife, for example, and you’ll need to perform realistic gestures to reload your firearms. Might all this make Resident Evil 4 a little bit harder and more intense to play? For sure, but that’s the fun of VR, isn’t it? Besides, a shooting range has also been added to the game for you to safely practice your firearm skills.

Got a PS5 and a PS VR2 headset but still aren’t sure about playing Resident Evil 4 in VR? The good news is that a new VR demo for the game will also be released on 8th December. It will allow you to experience the game’s opening, and provides access to the shooting range. Be sure to give it a go if you’re on the fence.
