“Oculus Studios, Armature, and Capcom partnered closely to remaster Resident Evil 4 from the ground up for VR. This includes immersive environments and high-resolution graphics. It also includes select changes to in-game dialogue and animations that we believe will update Resident Evil 4 for a modern audience.”
The game is now out and reviews are glowing, though sadly those rumors were accurate. Multiple lines of dialogue are now trimmed to remove any hint of flirtatious dialogue and, even worse, the cuts are clumsily disguised by bursts of static on Leon’s comms device. Luis’ infamous line about “ballistics” is also absent, though Ashley’s reaction to it hasn’t been removed, making the edit rather obvious.
You can argue that these are small and inconsequential changes, but it’s strange given that the game has been re-released on every format under the sun for years without even a whisper from the most ardent social justice commentator. Besides, Luis’ line is supposed to make him look like a sleaze, so it removes a bit of key characterization.
Naturally, all the gruesome violence is intact, so presumably, Facebook is fine with blowing the heads off infected Spanish villagers but draws the line at some cheesy James Bond-style dialogue.
An official reveal trailer published back in June has since confirmed these initial reports, offering us our first look at Resident Evil Village in action. Gematsu’s source had also claimed that the game will feature support for PlayStation VR, though Sony has so far remained tight-lipped regarding potential VR compatibility.
