The alert people at Biohazard Declassified noticed a trailer for Resident Evil 4 VR that was seemingly uploaded to the Oculus YouTube channel forward of time and shortly set to personal, however not earlier than they ripped a duplicate and uploaded it themselves. As you’ll be able to see above, it pronounces that the fan-favorite Mercenaries mode might be coming in 2022 as a “free replace on Meta Quest 2”. (Yep, the Oculus Quest is being renamed the Meta Quest as a part of the Facebook company rebranding to Meta.)
Mercenaries is the arcade-action mode that is been sporadically current all through the Resident Evil collection, coming and going unpredictably. After being not noted of RE7 and the remakes of RE2 and RE3, it was again in Resident Evil Village and as tense as ever—although it was a purely singleplayer mode, since presumably Capcom plans to cater to multiplayer followers with Village’s delayed six-player bonus spin-off Re:Verse. The trailer does not point out whether or not RE4VR’s Mercenaries mode can have multiplayer or not.
Within the unique Resident Evil 4, Mercenaries was obtainable as an unlockable additional after ending the marketing campaign. The 2 different unlockables, Project Ada and Separate Methods, are additionally absent within the VR model. It certain could be good in the event that they confirmed up as effectively, and whereas we’re dreaming Resident Evil Village would be amazing in VR.
