Fall is upon us, and if you’re more excited about haunted houses than all things pumpkin spice, then we have news for you: Capcom’s critically-acclaimed Resident Evil™ 4 is launching for VR on October 21, exclusively on Oculus Quest 2. And what better way to celebrate than with a spine-tingling new gameplay trailer?

This is the first glimpse of the game since we unveiled some pre-alpha footage during the Oculus Gaming Showcase in April, and we couldn’t be more excited. Capcom partnered with Oculus Studios and Armature Studio to ratchet up the suspense with an immersive first-person perspective that only VR can deliver.

Standing or seated, players will enjoy plenty of comfort options. Support for both teleportation and room-scale movement means you can explore the game’s world your way. You’ll still move by using the analog stick, but Armature has added a full upper-body rig on top of Leon’s character to combine his movement with the dual-handed interactivity achieved with Touch controllers. Weapons and items have been re-engineered as physical objects, so you can pick them up and interact with them. Lastly, rather than navigating a menu to swap out weapons, you can grab them off your body.

Widely regarded as one of the best games ever made, Resident Evil 4 set a new gold standard for survival horror. We can’t wait for players to re-experience the action and horrors that await them as they step into Leon’s shoes in VR.

Look for Resident Evil 4 to hit Quest 2 on October 21.
