If you are a fan of the Resident Evil or Biohazard universe and you’ve wanted to experience it in real life, well now you can! Biohazard Valiant Raid — a virtual-reality game attraction is set to open on 19 July 2019 at Ikebukuro Capcom Plaza in Tokyo, Japan.
Resident Evil or Biohazard (as known in Japan) has been one of the most influential pieces of entertainment on the zombie horror genre. The highly successful franchise has almost been the driver of the zombie horror genre for more than 20 years now. It has an enormous fan-base all across the world.
The recent Resident Evil 2 (Biohazard 2) remake was one of the highest-grossing games of 2019.
And now Capcom is bringing that same Biohazard experience in real life with the help of VR. Biohazard Valiant Raid is a virtual-reality game in which players can take the role of Umbrella Security Service members investigating a building that houses a laboratory where the situation gradually becomes chaotic.
The VR attraction has been in production for some months now and we finally have a launch date for it as well as a trailer. According to Capcom’s reservation page for Biohazard Valiant Raid, up to four players can play together.
If your team is lacking a player, for example, if you are limited to three or two, Capcom will add another player to your team from the waiting area.
Capcom is offering two playable editions with Biohazard Valiant Raid which varies with price. The DX edition will cost 2,500 yen / per person while the Normal edition will cost 2,200 yen / per person.
Little is known at this point what Biohazard Valiant Raid will be like when it launches on 19 July 2019. Even though the CGI promotional trailer for Valiant Raid doesn’t reveal much about the interiors, functionality, or the environment of the venue, it is safe to assume that Capcom is planning a grand opening for it.
Reservations for Biohazard Valiant Raid have already begun. You can head over to Capcom’s website to book your reservation in time.
