The Praydog Resident Evil VR Mod Gameplay is Stunningly Brilliant (SFW/NSFW videos)

We have to commend the PC modding community once again. Not only because of the recent excellent Lukeross VR mod for Horizon Zero Dawn (and his upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 VR mod), but the recently released Resident Evil VR mod from Praydog, or REframework mod as he calls it. The mod allows PC gamers the chance to play Capcom’s games which use the RE Engine. So, that includes the likes of Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter, Resident Evil 2 & 3 Remakes etc. Take a look at our two Resident Evil 3 Remake VR gameplay videos which showcase the mod in action as we provide our thoughts. Be warned, PART 1 video might not entirely be safe for work given Jill’s rather revealing outfit.

What makes the Resident Evil VR mod even more special, is the inclusion of motion control support which puts the game on another level alongside the sheer sense of scale VR provides and total immersion into the game world. The mod allows for first and third person perspectives which is great. Players will also see Jill and supporting cast in third person during cutscenes (a first person option exists also) and whilst this might sound jarring, in practice it’s actually pretty awesome because see the characters/scenes from a new perspective in VR. Sure, the mod isn’t perfect and supported games like Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village are experimental at this stage. However, we think this type of AAA VR experience should convert many of the naysayers who don’t feel VR adds anything to the table. We loved RE 7 VR on PSVR and hoped Capcom would release it on PC. The 2D game subsidized the VR version as they were part of the same retail package. We hope more games in the future get a similar treatment especially if mods like these can encourage more people to invest in VR equipment. We hope SONY will make sure it too will keep working with its developers to encourage them to work with Playstation VR 2.

We’re running the game using an RTX 3090 and HP Reverb G2. Whilst the video playback might look a little choppy, in-game it is absolutely fine.
