Resident Evil Village will reportedly include VR mode

The latest installment of the Resident Evil series is rumored to include virtual reality options like Resident Evil 7 before it.

Neither Sony nor Capcom have confirmed or denied this rumor, but it makes perfect sense that the sequel to a game where you could complete an entire run in first-person virtual reality would include the same type of content in its sequel.

We'll be back with new footage to pore over when the new trailer drops this August. Hopefully by then we'll
