The Evil Within 2 on PlayStation VR? Shinki Mikami gives fans hope | Gaming | Entertainment

The Evil Within 2 fans have been given hope of a virtual reality port.

The Evil Within 2 has an October 13 release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

But with Bethesda games like Fallout 4, Doom and Skyrim all coming to platforms like PlayStation VR and HTC Vive, Express Online asked Evil Within 2 producer Shinji Mikami if there was any chance of a virtual reality port for the horror game.

Mikami said: “I don’t know if there are any plans, but once we’re finished, it’s something to think about.”

The Resident Evil creator said that virtual reality is a good fit for horror because of the realism and sense of immersion.

He continued: “Humans are intelligent creatures, but even that intelligent person playing a VR game, if they see a thing, they’ll reach out their hand to get it, even though they should know that it’s not really there.

“It’s able to trick our brains, that’s how real it is.”

The Evil Within 2 has an October 13 release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

For consoles, the The Evil Within 2 takes up approximately 31GB depending on the region and version when installed to Xbox One.

A patch will be available on launch day, which will require 250MB of space available to install.

Meanwhile, The Evil Within 2 takes up approximately 33GB on PS4, plus a further 260MB of space for a day-one patch.

Shinji Mikami worked as a consultant for Evil Within 2, which was directed by John Johanas.

Johanas directed highly-rated Evil Within DLC episode ‘The Assignment’ and ‘The Consequence’.

The sequel will place a greater emphasis on story and will feature larger areas that players are free to explore.

But despite the shift to larger maps and non-linear sections, Johanas told Express Online that you would never feel completely safe.
