Resident Evil 4 Remake Officially Announced

Resident Evil 4 Remake is officially on its way and it will be released on March 24, 2023. Capcom is looking to reimagine the “storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard.”

PSVR2 owners will also be able to look forward to some type of VR content, although no further details were given.

Resident Evil Village Is Getting the VR Treatment

VR will also let players guard by actually lifting their arms and use different weapons in each hand for even more combat opportunities.

Horizon Call of the Mountain Will Will Let You Experience Horizon in a Whole New Way

The latest State of Play gave us an extended look at Horizon Call of the Mountain’s gameplay, which is coming exclusively to PSVR2.

In this new story set in the world of the first two games, players will become a former Shadow Carja Warrior named Ryas who is looking to redeem himself by “investigating a grave new threat to the Sundom. He excels at climbing and archery (which are great for VR) and will have to do such things as scale “perilous mountains” and “taking down mighty machines like the Thunderjaw.”

Even though players won’t be seeing this world through the eyes of Aloy, they will run across them and other familiar and new faces along the journey.

This will also potentially be a great showpiece for the PSVR2 as, alongside the story mode, there will be a River Ride mode that will take players down a… well… river to enjoy the beautiful scenery. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some “uninvited machines” that try to get aboard.
