NOTE: the official video has now been unlisted at the time of this writing. We will update when it is made public again.
The much beloved Mercenaries mode from the original Resident Evil 4 will be added to the Meta Quest 2 VR port in 2022, as per a video on Oculus’ YouTube Channel.
The announcement has come out of nowhere, as no formal roadmap was outlaid for the newest port of the critically acclaimed action horror title.
It will be released sometime in 2022 according to the Oculus YouTube account.
It was noted during the reviews of the lack of inclusion of The Mercenaries, Assignment Ada and Seperate Ways, all additional content that were present in the ports of Resident Evil 4 that preceded the VR port.
However, due to the popularity and overall positive reviews of the VR port, it appears that this may be a turning point for RE4 VR. It’s also important to note that Resident Evil 4 VR is nominated for Best VR Game at this year’s The Game Awards.
