Capcom has already announced that it has listed the Resident Evil 4 for Apple devices, the most interesting thing being that this game will reach the iPhone 15 Pro, iPads and their laptops and desktops. While there is no release date yet, the game is listed for December 31, although it is indicated that it is an indicative date. It is expected to arrive before the end of the year, since next month, Resident Evil Village will arrive.
This launch is quite important, and it is the Resident Evil 4 Remake adapted to mobile devices. Of course, this version could be a general version for the Apple ecosystem. That is to say, if what we already saw in Resident Evil Village is fulfilled, it is a native game for Apple deviceswith the possibility of choose graphic settings to adapt the graphic quality to the power of a smartphone, tablet or your computers. In this way, the iPhone will have a graphic adjustment established according to its power.
These are the requirements that the devices must meet to move Resident Evil 4
Specifically, on iPhone, this game will only be compatible with iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max. The reason is that a processor is required Apple A17 Pro which is only present in these two models. This is why the rest of the iPhone devices would be incompatible. Perhaps the most demanding requirement is the 19.3 GB internal storage that occupies this game. Something that will be much more painful in the iPhone 15 Pro, since the most basic model starts at 128 GB of capacity.
In the case of iPads, a 2021 iPad Pro or a 2022 iPad Air is required. Specifically, an iPad that uses the Apple M1 SoC as starting point. If we talk about Mac laptops or desktops, the minimum requirement is the same: an Apple M1 SoC. On portable devices the use of a controller will be optional, since buttons integrated into the screen will be offered. Obviously, the use of the controller will significantly improve the gaming experience.
Perhaps the most interesting of all is that Resident Evil 4 for iPhone, iPad and Mac will offer access to part of the game for free. This way you can try it before you buy it.
These seem to be the same requirements requested by Resident Evil Village
Seen last week, the Resident Evil Village will give us an idea of what we can expect in a Resident Evil 4 on an iPhone 15 Pro. The Village runs on this device at a resolution of 1,560 x 720 pixels at 30 FPS with graphic settings in medium quality. These settings could be modified, but obviously thinking about being executed on an iPad or Mac with more powerful hardware.
Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village mark the beginning of an Apple that is involved with gaming experience more than ever. A clear example is being able to connect the iPhone 15 Pro via USB-C to a monitor and enjoy the game on a larger screen with a wireless controller like the PlayStation 5 DualSense.
