As reported by The Verge, the 'Resident Evil' series has tried VR before. The 2017 first-person game 'Resident Evil 7' had let users play the entire game with a PlayStation VR headset, which made the game arguably scarier but also more difficult to play. Capcom also released a VR-only demo for the game.

This time it is special, as this is the first full 'Resident Evil' game that seems specifically designed for VR - and specifically for Facebook's standalone Oculus Quest 2. While it is not clear whether Resident Evil 4 will also support the original Quest, Oculus has pushed to make Quest games compatible with both headsets in the past.
