Resident Evil 4 Reportedly Coming to Oculus Headsets in 2021

It was always a shame that the virtual reality (VR) version of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard only ever made it as far as PlayStation VR, with Capcom never making the PC version VR compatible. If a new report is to be believed then the franchise could be expanding, with 2005’s Resident Evil 4 possibly hitting Oculus headsets next year.

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard

As reported by PC Gamer, the first part of this story involves Capcom getting hit by a ransomware attack at the beginning of November by a hacker group called Ragnar Locker. This involved the loss of around 1TB of data from Capcom’s servers. Now, this has been confirmed, with Capcom releasing a press statement on the incident, saying: “it has been the victim of a customized ransomware attack following unauthorized access to its network and has verified that some personal information maintained by the Capcom Group has been compromised.”

Now for the pinch of salt information. Because Capcom refused to buckle some of that data has been leaked, detailing info on the upcoming Resident Evil Village as well as sparking these Resident Evil 4 rumours. The title will supposedly be an Oculus exclusive with an April release date slated for both videogames. Head on over to Reddit which has more info from the leak compiled.

Capcom’s highest-ever rated videogame according to Metacritic, Resident Evil 4 got an HD remaster in 2016. With the recent successful remakes of Resident Evil 2 & 3, it was no surprise that the fourth outing would get the same treatment, expected in 2022. There’s nothing in the leak about that remaster which could be considered odd but these are rumours after all.

If the whole or parts of the leak are true then Capcom could well have started altering elements like the launch window as it looks to readdress its plans.

When it comes to horror titles, PlayStation VR’s Resident Evil 7 Biohazard continually crops up on must play playlists, so getting another from the franchise would be a boon. As and when further details come to light, VRFocus will let you know.

Wallace & Gromit’s AR Adventure ‘The Big Fix Up’ Out Now

Last year Aardman Animations and Fictioneers announced that beloved duo Wallace & Gromit would be making their way into augmented reality (AR). Today, Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up has arrived for mobile devices so that players can help fix up the duo’s home town of Bristol, UK.

Providing a narrative-driven experience with AR gameplay, Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up is their first new adventure in a decade. The iconic characters have started a new business venture, Spick & Spanners, and you’re the company’s new employee.

Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up is voiced by award-winning British actors including Miriam Margolyes and Jim Carter with Ben Whitehead playing Wallace. The AR app can be used both at home or outside to aid the pair, with in-character phone calls, extended reality (XR) portals, and comic strips all part of the experience.

“We are really excited to launch The Big Fix Up, the first release from our new Fictioneers studio. We believe it’s a first-of-its-kind experience, part of our vision to harness multiple technologies, media types and formats to tell enhanced, collaborative and immersive stories in real-time,” said Scott Ewings, Venture Lead at Potato and co-founder of Fictioneers in a statement. “With The Big Fix Up, we have created a new, rich and multi-layered experience, where, for the first time ever, YOU can become part of Wallace & Gromit’s story. This will be the first of many releases using the Fictioneers platform.”

Wallace & Gromit have innovation, gadgets, and technology at the comedic heart of their world. Working with Fictioneers to create The Big Fix Up has been a perfect fit, allowing us to bring the duo’s fantastic fictional contraptions right into our audiences homes using the latest real technology,” adds Merlin Crossingham, Creative Director of Wallace & Gromit at Aardman.

Fictioneers is a collaboration between Potato, Sugar Creative and Tiny Rebel Games. The group used 3D mapping platform Fantasmo to bring Bristol’s city centre to life as well as Unity’s AR Foundation toolkit.

Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up is freely available now on iOS and Android devices in the UK, US and Canada. For further updates from Fictioneers about its latest immersive content, keep reading VRFocus.

Crimedoor: A New Augmented Reality App that Allows People to Help Unravel the “Delphi Murder” Case

Avatar

Published

on

There is a sensational new app that lets people into some of the most baffling cold cases of the country. Crimedoor—the leading augmented reality app now recreates crime scenes that allow people to solve unsolved murder cases.

The app recently announced its collaboration with Kelsi German, the sister of the Delphi murder case victim Libby German. Libby, along with her friend Abby Williams, was murdered tragically in Delphi, Indiana in the year 2017. However, the case remained unresolved. Crimedoor, through their new partnership with Kelsi German, launches the Delphi Murder Crimedoor on their platform that lets users get into the crime scene via augmented reality. It is hoped that the venture will shed some new light on some unanswered questions related to the case.

The Delphi Murders

The Delphi Murders are one of the most notorious cold cases in the history of the nation. Despite the extensive efforts from law enforcement and over 26,000 tips received from the public, the case still remains unsolved. Even the cops retrieved a voice recording of the prime suspect and released it to the public, but with no luck. This is where Crimedoor comes into the picture. The augmented reality app developed by the husband and wife duo Lauren and Neil Mandt gives its users the opportunity to virtually enter the crime scene and investigate.

Solve the crime

The developers categorically stated that Crimedoor is not about celebrating killers. Rather, it is a platform to give a voice to the victims and their families. Their prime concern is to solve the crime. To this end, the developers give the utmost effort to recreate the crime scene with every possible detail. They hope that the technology of augmented reality will be pivotal in this regard.

Renewed attention

In their mission, Crimedoor has also partnered with Paul Holes, the famous cold-case detective who helped solve cases like Golden State Killer, Zodiac, and Jaycee Dugard cases. He said that his present purpose is to give the victims’ families a chance to attract renewed attention to their cases and bring closure. He hopes that the AR technology will become instrumental and may enable someone to identify the killer.

Unrestricted acces

Through Crimedoor, police, journalists, and the public alike will get unrestricted access to the crime scene with the help of the AR recreations of the photo evidence of the places. Detective Holes states that the AR technology will help revisit the crime scenes, and the spatial presence will be instrumental in gaining new leads. He also believes that AR technology will become instrumental in solving criminal cases in the future. He describes the value of the technology in solving cold cases as critical as the introduction of DNA.

Relevant evidence

Along with the augmented reality doors, the augmented reality app Crimedoor has included geo-location tags to identify cold cases across the world. Additionally, all of the profiles feature relevant evidence and supporting materials, including articles, videos, podcasts, images, and more—all stored in one place.
