Resident Evil 4 Remake Is Giving Fans A Bonus Mode For Free

Gamers take notice when one of the greatest, if not the greatest, survival horror games ever released gets a next-gen makeover. "Resident Evil 4" defined a generation with its impressive graphics, soundtrack, and gameplay when it hit shelves in 2005. And the story was nothing short of perfection, too, with players controlling protagonist Leon S. Kennedy as he investigates the disappearance of the President's daughter in a remote village in Spain. That said, it's easy to see why gamers are excited to discover how "Resident Evil 4" is being upgraded for next-gen consoles to introduce a new generation of gamers to this horror masterpiece and let long-time fans relive the experience in a new way.

Gamers have a lot of faith in the remake, as Capcom has a great track record. For example, the "Resident Evil 2" and "Resident Evil 3" remakes were a hit with critics and gamers alike, providing gamers with an updated, polished way to play through the original games. But that wasn't all. These remakes also include bonus content, such as alternative costumes and game modes, giving many hardcore fans an excuse to sink dozens more hours into the games. And "Resident Evil 4" remake is no different, as Capcom recently revealed the game would include an exciting new bonus mode for free.

Resident Evil 4 will get a free VR mode

The team behind the "Resident Evil 4" remake recently tweeted some exciting news about the upcoming title. As translated by VGC, the tweet states, a "VR mode of Resident Evil RE: 4 has started development." Then in a follow-up tweet, the Biohazard account clarified that "VR mode of Resident Evil RE: 4 will be distributed as free DLC for PlayStation 5 / PlayStation VR2." This will undoubtedly come as great news to anyone who has or is planning on picking up the new PSVR2. Additionally, as of today, gamers can now play through "The Village" in VR for free, provided they own the game and a PSVR2.

This isn't the first time "Resident Evil 4" has been available on VR, as the original game was made available on the Oculus Store. However, the Oculus Store version doesn't feature the updated graphics and gameplay the remake will bring. The remake may also take advantage of the new PSVR2 features, such as eye tracking and haptic feedback. But because it's unknown when the remake's VR DLC will release, gamers shouldn't hold their breath, as it may not be available at launch.
