Good news for PlayStation VR2 fans, Capcom has confirmed that the release date for Resident Evil 4 Remake’s virtual reality mode won’t be too long in coming. The DLC will arrive on December 8 next year at no additional cost to anyone who has purchased a copy of the game on PS5.

In it, you will be able to access the shooting range and experience a “360º vision of the game’s opening sequence”. It will be up to you to test the weapons as much as you want. This mode is exclusive to the PlayStation VR2 device on PS5.

Meta Quest 2 received a native port of the original version of Resident Evil 4 back in 2021.
