Resident Evil 2 and 3 are now playable in VR, if you dare

The recent remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 are now playable in VR thanks to the long-awaited release of the VR mod, which even features Resident Evil Village VR “in an early state” – although you’ll need a decent PC to take advantage of it, not to mention nerves of steel.

While the first-person Resident Evil 7 got an official VR version and Resident Evil 4 just got a VR edition exclusively for Oculus Quest 2, the series generally shies away from VR versions – even the direct sequel to RE7, last year’s Resident Evil Village, didn’t have VR implemented.

Modders have already added first-person controls to most of the recent third-person Resident Evil games, but now there’s the option for VR too. Modder Praydog has been working on a VR mod for the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes, along with 7 and even Village – as they all use the same RE engine – and it’s now finally available to download on Github.
