More than two years after its initial release, fans can now finally play CAPCOM‘s Resident Evil 2 remake in virtual reality.

Created by modder “praydog,” the new mod works for both the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes and converts both third-person gaming experiences into a haunting, adrenaline-fueled first-person shooter. On top of this impressive feat, the mod is also exceptionally comprehensive, offering full motion controls and even 3D collision with certain melee weapons like a knife, so you can hack and slash your way through hordes of zombies.

To make the VR experience seamless, you’ll also be able to watch all the games’ cutscenes in 3D directly on your headset, although players should note that some scenes might break because you’ll be able to see things originally unintended to be in frame.

For those interested, you can check out a 10-minute clip of the VR gameplay for Resident Evil 2 remake up above and download the necessary assets to boot it up yourself over on GitHub.

Elsewhere in gaming, Hideo Kojima has teased a new, “radical project.”
