New VR games, trailers, and release dates were announced during the Playstation Showcase. Here you can find all the news at a glance.
Resident Evil 4 VR Mode
The best news first: The upcoming VR mode will bring the entire story of the remake to VR.
Instead of looking over Leon’s shoulder, you’ll experience the story from a more immersive first-person perspective, and instead of pressing buttons, you’ll wield Leon’s knife with your own hands. The same goes for the rest of the arsenal. A trailer gives us a first look at the gameplay.
The VR mode is still in development and will be released exclusively for the Playstation VR 2, but Capcom has not announced when exactly.
The VR superhit is now available for Playstation VR 2 and comes with a new music pack that includes the following eleven songs from the cult band:
- Another One Bites the Dust
- bohemian rhapsody
- Crazy Little Thing Called Love
- Don’t Stop Me Now
- I Want It All
- Killer Queen
- Somebody to Love
- Stone Cold Crazy
- We Are The Champions
- We Will Rock You
The music pack will also be released for other VR platforms where Beat Saber is available.
Those who have already purchased Beat Saber for Playstation VR will receive the PSVR 2 upgrade for free. Purchased DLC will also be transferred for free.
