This modder added VR support to Resident Evil Village when Capcom refused

Modder Praydog, who previously added VR support for Resident Evils 2 and 3, has now brought the immersive headset-based game of the future to Resident Evils 7 and Village. Ian Highton in eurogamer got a chance to try out the nearly finished mod before its release. Praydog intends to release it for free, but you can also support their future VR projects by supporting their Patreon.

Resident Evil 7 had very well received support for Sony’s PSVR headset, but never received a PC version, while Resident Evil Village never received the PSVR nod. Demand for such a mode remained, however, given how well slow-action and first-person games played. lends itself to VR game.

The Praydog’s handling is arguably even better than the official Resident Evil 7 PSVR, which only supports the headset and requires a standard controller for movement and aiming. Praydog’s mods, meanwhile, allow for full motion controls and even include a fully animated viewmodel instead of the official version’s “floating camera” approach.

Eurogamer video showcase The mod is also a real treat, with Higton taking particular delight in the combination of motion controls and the adjacent strange valley model for the infant daughter of Ethan Winters that the game has you holding onto throughout the intro.

The mod also adds a new dimension to Village’s infamous encounters with Lady Dimitrescu, allowing players to experience the… horror? Yes, the horror of being pressed and gutted by the 9-foot tall matron in all her immersive glory.

Once finished, you can probably find the project at Praydog’s github page alongside his previous work on Resident Evil VR.
