Now accessible from the App Store, Resident Evil Village is available as a substantial 7.92GB download. Players can dive into the game for free and have the option to unlock the full gaming experience at a special discounted price of $15.99, reflecting a generous 60% reduction valid until November 20. Post-discount, the base game is priced at $39.99, and for those seeking additional excitement, the Winters’ Expansion DLC is available as an in-app purchase for $19.99.
Additionally, the All Access Voucher DLC is offered at $4.99. These DLC options maintain consistency across platforms, matching the offerings available for PC and console versions, as highlighted by TouchArcade.
Looking forward, gamers can anticipate the release of the Resident Evil 4 remake later in the year, compatible with iPhone 15 Pro, and iPad models with M1 chips and later, as well as macOS. Although the App Store currently lists a December 31, 2023, release date, this serves as a placeholder, hinting at the possibility of an earlier release, potentially immediately following Apple’s “Scary Fast” event.
Both the Resident Evil 4 remake and Resident Evil Village received attention during Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro announcement in September, showcasing the gaming capabilities of the A17 Pro chip and its new GPU with hardware-accelerated ray tracing. This technological advancement enables performance comparable to console gaming on the iPhone. Adding to the device’s versatility, the iPhone 15 models feature DisplayPort support through the USB-C port, allowing for 4K/60Hz video output to DisplayPort-equipped external displays or TVs with the appropriate cable. This is a significant upgrade from the previous 1080p limitation on older models with Lightning ports.
Furthermore, the Resident Evil 4 remake supports cross-progression across iOS, iPadOS, and macOS platforms, while Resident Evil Village offers cross-progression between iPadOS and iOS, given its prior availability on macOS.
The iOS and iPadOS release of Resident Evil Village represents a separate purchase opportunity for gaming enthusiasts.
