The VR version of Resident Evil 4, a popular survival horror game that was first released by Capcom in 2005, is set to launch on Oculus Quest 2 this October. It has recently been revealed that the game will require nearly 12 GB of storage space to download and install.
Without any games, the 64 GB version of the Oculus Quest 2 headset has around 52 GB of free storage space (the system takes up quite a lot), which means that its users would be left with 40 GB after installing Resident Evil 4.
While that may seem like a lot, VR games are growing in size as their developers keep pushing the boundaries of virtual reality entertainment further and further toward realism. For example, Medal Of Honor: Above And Beyond currently holds the record with its projected install size of 40 to 45 GB.
Yes, it’s possible that having both Resident Evil 4 and Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond installed simultaneously on the entry-level 64 GB Oculus Quest 2 won’t be possible.
The good news is that Facebook recently upgraded the Oculus Quest 2 base model storage from 64 GB to 128 GB, so new owners shouldn’t struggle with too much when installing games on their devices.
In terms of gameplay, Resident Evil 4 promises support for teleportation and full-motion movement alike. The game features a realistic inventory management system that makes it possible for the player to grab weapons and items from holsters and pockets, instead of causing them to materialize from thin air.
The game’s numerous puzzles have been redesigned for virtual reality as well, taking advantage of Oculus Quest 2 controllers to offer players a new dimension of interactivity. Hopefully, Resident Evil 4 will live up to the hype and justify its larger size with fun gameplay and great visuals.
