Resident Evil 2 and 3 can now be played in VR

Resident Evil 7 was a great (and terrifying) VR experience. Later games did not have official virtual reality support, but now unofficial VR support has been added to their PC versions. More precisely, Resident Evil 2 and 3, as well as 7 and Village, were allowed to play in a VR environment.

Modifications of the second and third games require downloading a modification that allows first-person play, and in VR mode they also support movement controls - targeting, swinging a knife, and imitating grenade throwing. The unofficial VR mode for Village is still not at that level and is still in development.

As this is still unofficial support for VR, some scenes in the game are still performed in a classic form, which ruins the experience a bit. However, the experience of playing in this way is something completely new because it includes peeking around corners and "manual" control of the lamp in the dark.

Unfortunately, it all comes with a price, and the price is that you need really powerful hardware to play Resident Evil games in VR. While the games themselves are pretty well optimized, the VR performance requires double rendering (for each eye), so don’t even try this without a high-end graphics card.
