Resident Evil Village VR Could Be Coming To PC
If Resident Evil fans were worried the shuffling series has gone a bit quiet since the release of Resident Evil Village, there's good news on the VR front. Even the recent third-party Sony State of Play skipped out on Village, meaning we're not sure if Capcom is going to deliver that promised DLC in 2021.
Now that we've decapitated the four heads of the Four Houses, there isn't much reason to go back to Village. Mercenaries is a bit of fun for a while, but once we've bested Mother Miranda and our heart rates have finally returned to normal, why would you return to Village? Basically, we need a VR version.
Is Resident Evil Village VR On The way?
Remembering that 2017's Resident Evil 7 VR port is one of the scariest games of all time (seriously, bring a change of underwear), giving Village the same treatment would be an easy sell for the developer. Sadly, Capcom has no plans for a VR Village, while the various Resiverse leaks don't hint at one either.
Taking matters into their own hands, one intrepid modder is giving some of the older games the VR treatment. We already covered how modder Praydog is trying to give the 2019 and 2020 RE2 and RE3 remakes a VR revamp - with some impressive results.
Now, a ResetEra thread explains that because the mods use Capcom's RE Engine, it's effectively possible to give all the recent releases the same treatment. A separate comment says the original modder has plans to extend their VR modding prowess to Village.
What's Next For Resident Evil Village?
For now, Village is in a weird limbo. This year's Capcom showcase at E3 said a DLC is on the way but made no mention of plural. Considering RE7 had the "Not a Hero" and "End of Zoe" DLCs, it would be nice to think we'll get at least two for Village. Remembering Ada Wong was in early concepts, she's crying out for her own DLC.
We've already got RE7 in VR from official sources, but the mere concept of seeing Lady D slice off your hands with a Resident Evil Village VR mod has us running for the hills. Further down the line, you can probably expect Capcom to eventually deliver an official VR version, but with it taking 16 years for Resident Evil 4 to get one, you might be waiting a while.
