A free VR experience is due to arrive on the Playstation for free in Japan. Titled “Biohazard Vendetta Z Infected Experience” (Biohazard is the Japanese title of Resident Evil), this experience will be based on and used for promoting of the upcoming CG animated Resident Evil movie, “Resident Evil: Vendetta“.
Resident Evil: Vendetta is the 3rd CG movie of the RE series (by Capcom), acting as a sequel to Resident Evil: Damnation. This movie will feature classic Resident Evil characters, like Chris Redfield, Rebecca Chambers and Leon Scott Kennedy. In this movie, Chris will seek the help of Rebecca and Leon to stop Glenn Arias, an evil merchant who is planning to unleash the deadly “Trigger Virus”.
In this experience, you won’t be stepping into the shoes of Leon and Chris though. Interestingly, you will assume the role as one of the many zombies, who attempt to take down the duo in a corridor.
The free experience will be up on May 24 in Japan. Here’s the announcement on Sony Blog (in Japanese)
