Flatscreen to VR mods for Resident Evil games are no strangers to Ian’s VR Corner. Thanks to the sterling work of modder Praydog, I’ve been able to play my way through both the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 Remakes and I’ve had the pleasure of getting up close and personal with Lady D in Resident Evil Village VR way before the PSVR 2 version of the game was even announced.

However, on this week’s episode of Ian’s VR Corner (or should that be Leon’s VR Corner?), you can watch me time travel back to the 90s as I dive face first into an incredibly detailed VR recreation of the classic PS1 version of Resident Evil 2!

Resident Evil 2: Source was originally made for the flat version of Half-Life 2. After Steam Workshop support was added to the free Half-Life 2 VR Mod recently, the mod’s creator gave permission for it to be ported to VR and that’s exactly what someone has done! To play the mod for yourself, all you’ll need are a copy of the original Half-Life 2 and of course the free Half-Life 2 VR mod. Then you just have to subscribe to Resident Evil 2: Source VR mod in Steam Workshop and, next time you load up the Half-Live 2 VR mod, you’ll find all the RE2: Source maps in the ‘Workshop’ menu on the main title screen.
