Is Resident Evil Village VR Mode Free?


Resident Evil Village is getting a VR mode. But will it be free?

Capcom first announced the VR mode for Resident Evil Village back in June 2022. Since then, players have been slowly receiving information on what the mode will fully entail.

At launch, players will be able to play through the entirety of Resident Evil Village in VR, experiencing Ethan Winter's quest to safe his infant daughter from the clutches of Mother Miranda.

With the PS VR2, players will get a 4K HDR display (2000×2040 per eye) along with eye tracking. Additional 3D audio enhances the atmosphere, and the game will make full use of the enhanced PS VR2 Sense controllers through vibration, recoil and resistance. Players can also take a more physical role during the game, such as through raising your arms to guard or wielding the knife to slash.

Will Resident Evil Village VR Mode be Free?

Earlier this month, Capcom announced that Resident Evil Village VR mode will launch on Feb. 22, 2023. The mode will be available as a free DLC for Resident Evil Village and will be available to download and play immediately with the PS VR2.

In order to play the Resident Evil Village VR mode, players must own Resident Evil Village or Resident Evil Village Gold Edition. The VR mode will need to be downloaded separately.
