A VR version of Resident Evil Village could be coming to the PC platform. Capcom has officially announced that they will be bringing Resident Evil Village to the PSVR 2 at their Gameplay. Earlier Resident Evil7 received a VR version that was only available for the PlayStation 4.
Resident Evil Village VR for PC
Neither RE7 nor 8 have been officially released for VR on the PC platform. This feat has only been achieved by mods until now. Although the mods work great but getting an official version would be dope. Data miner litbeep on Reddit dug through the executable files for the latest update and found references to RE Village for SteamVR..
With the release of the new RE: Village update, I did some digging through the executable file and noticed several strings referencing OpenVR and SteamVR, with some mention of popular HMDs. Interestingly, we can also see components relating to PSVR.
At first, I thought this may simply be leftover from the development of the PSVR2 version of Village, somehow. But if you look at the history for the app on SteamDB, you'll notice they actually went in and added the "VR" tag themselves.
Yes, the files could have been added by mistake or the developers forgot to remove them later. But adding the file to SteamDB doesn’t seem to be a coincidence. We have already seen that the game works perfectly with mods on VR. So for the developers to optimize it officially for VR on PC should be no mean feat.
But for now, take everything with a grain of salt, as there has been nothing official from Capcom. Resident Evil 7 was also modded for PC VR but didn’t get an official version so the same could be the case with RE Village. We’re really excited to hear from Capcom about all of this and hopefully see the VR version come to PC.
