Resident Evil Village Now Available on iPhone 15 Pro and M1/M2 iPads

Capcom has released Resident Evil Village for iPhone 15 Pro models and iPads with M1 or later Apple silicon. The game is available now as a 7.92GB download from the App Store. Players can try it for free and unlock the full game for the special price of $15.99 – a 60% discount that runs until November 20.

The regular pricing for the base game is $39.99, with a $19.99 in app purchase for the Winters’ Expansion DLC. There is also a $4.99 All Access Voucher DLC. As noted by TouchArcade, these DLC packs are the same as the PC and console versions.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is due later this year for iPhone 15 Pro, iPad (M1 and later) models, and macOS. The App Store still lists the game as "Coming Soon – Expected December 31, 2023," but this is a placeholder and the game could come much sooner (there is speculation it could even be released immediately following Apple's upcoming "Scary Fast" event.)

Resident Evil 4 Remake and Resident Evil Village were showcased during Apple's ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ announcement in September. The ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ and ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ Max are powered by an A17 Pro chip that features a brand new GPU with hardware-accelerated ray tracing, enabling ported console games to be played on the iPhone at near-equivalent performance.

DisplayPort support is built into the USB-C port on all iPhone 15 models, meaning that the devices can also output video at up to 4K/60Hz natively to a DisplayPort-equipped external display or TV with a supported USB-C to DisplayPort cable. On previous iPhones with a Lightning port, video mirroring is limited to 1080p with Apple's Lightning-to-HDMI or Lightning-to-VGA adapters.

Resident Evil 4 Remake will have cross-progression on iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. In contrast, Resident Evil Village has cross-progression on iPadOS and iOS only, because it is already available on macOS, while the iOS and iPadOS release is an individual purchase.

I was thinking to myself that with horrendous battery life in modern iPhone's & Apple not interested in addressing the issue, what we really need is a battery draining game to play on the go. What could go wrong?
The internet: Apple Arcade sucks, we want better games.
Also the internet: Better games suck because they drain the battery.

Been testing it on both iPhone and M1 iPad, it runs better than I was expecting (default recommended graphics setting). 30 minutes of gameplay made my iPad warm but not dangerously hot, and consumed 18% battery. Playing with a wireless controller because the touch controls are not practical.

Funnily enough the iPhone version of the game occasionally displays a macOS-like mouse cursor in the top-left corner, probably as a developer oversight. Normally it's hidden by the curved corners of the iPhone display but it shows up in screen captures (see attached image).

Can't wait for Resident Evil 4 (2023 remake) to follow suit!

This should have been released on the Apple TV as well. Would have been a perfect fit and estavlish it as a viable gaming console. iPhone / iPad only is a mistake.
The current hardware in the Apple TV might not be powerful enough to run the game. What I'd love to see in the future is Apple releasing an A17 Pro-powered Apple TV for gaming.

In any case, I bought the base game + expansions eventhough I already own it on PC, Mac and Xbox Series X simply to support AAA gaming on iOS, so that hopefully more titles will come.
