The prolific modder who brought both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes to VR has put even more effort into bringing the Resident Evil universe to a virtual reality headset near you. This time around, Praydog has updated and added a handful of already impressive mods to bring Resident Evil 7 Biohazard and Resident Evil Village to PCVR with full 6DOF.
Instead of the flatscreen experience, Praydog has built in full 6DOF VR support for every game, full VRIK (so you’re no longer a pair of floating hands), and motion controller support. Motion controller support is still a work in progress according to the Mods Github page, but it looks like the new controls are already working to make the experience even more immersive.
This motion control now allows Resident Evil 7 and Village players to use their hands free in their gameplay. You can wave your arms wildly in front of your own face or someone else’s to your heart’s content. This also reinforces how immersive combat can be, so escaping Lycans will be all the more chaotic.
While Resident Evil 7 had a VR version, it was exclusive to PlayStation and also lacked many of the basic features that Praydog has since incorporated into its mods for the PC version. You may not be entirely new to playing Resident Evil 7 in VR, but I assure you that these mods will bring a whole new life to the experience.
That being said, this is one of our first looks at Steam’s Game of the Year winner, Resident Evil Village, also in VR. While it was sad for many that Village wouldn’t be privy to its predecessor’s PSVR release, Praydog continued to do what he does best and brought us a special VR mod for the title. Hooray!
You can try the mods for yourself on Praydog’s Github, and if you’d like to support more of his work with mods, you can also support his Patreon. Be warned though, as the Resident Evil 7 and Village mods are far from flawless. They always offer a fun, breathtaking experience (whether it’s combat or gorgeous-looking landscapes), but they’re not without their occasional glitches. The mods are still a work in progress and feedback can be reported on the Github page!
If you’re not a PC gamer but fancy getting into the madness of Resident Evil, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 7 will be coming to next-gen consoles later this year! In the meantime, let us know what Resident Evil experience you’d like to see in VR next.
