Resident Evil 7 Debuts on iPhone 15 Pro, iPad, and Mac

As part of its effort to embrace Apple's latest chips, Capcom today released Resident Evil 7 biohazard for iPhone 15 Pro, ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ Max, and all iPads and Macs with M-series Apple silicon chips. [App Store]


The game runs natively on Apple silicon with support for cross-progression and universal purchase, letting Apple users play the game across iPhone, iPad, and Mac with a single purchase and transfer their saved games between devices.

Capcom notes that the ‌iPhone‌ and ‌iPad‌ version of Resident Evil 7 biohazard includes enhanced controls with a new Auto Fire option to assist with touchscreen usability. Hardware controller support is also included for those who want a more console-like experience.

In addition to the main Resident Evil 7 biohazard game, the download also includes the Not A Hero DLC add-on, and a Gold Edition upgrade is available with additional DLC content.

The game is a free download that allows for a portion of the game to be played free of charge, with the full main unlock priced at $19.99. The Gold Edition DLC upgrade costs an additional $20.00.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard joins Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village as titles from the series available on ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌, ‌iPad‌, and Mac, with Resident Evil 2 also in development.

The other thing to remember is that ALL of these RE games that are being ported to Apple Silicon devices run RE Engine, Capcom's proprietary game engine that seems to be well suited for running with Metal and taking advantage of the graphic's technology that Apple Silicon provides.

It makes sense for them to continuing bringing over their games that run in RE engine, even if they're 7 years old.
Perhaps they'll bring over Street Fighter 6 when they're done porting RE games
There's something ironic about the forum simultaneously getting excited about emulators to play games that are decades old, and getting upset that a 7 year old game is too old.

That's a really really good point. We need to be excited that big companies like Capcom are bringing native ports of games to our platform of choice, especially if we want more gaming options on these platforms.

Ports of 7 year old games, new games, emulators, all these things are important to build up an ecosystem and promote the platform as a viable gaming option for other companies.

1. This is a seven year old game. I played it years ago. I want CURRENT gen games for my Mac. Day & date with pc counterparts.

2. I'll complain all I want to. You don't like it, skip over the comments & ignore.

I think the biggest problem is the Apple silicon devices don’t have enough graphical power, except for the pro’s/ Max which are too niche for devs to be bothered as they won’t sell much volumes

If gaming does ever become a thing on Mac I think this is the way : build up a library of popular older games and make your way closer to current times as the chips getcmore powerful and as games on ARM become more a thing on Windows too

Until that happens, this is going to be it I’m afraid
No, the problem is no one in Apple management understands games. With the exception of the IAP crapfests on mobile.

As an apple user, it's Cook's duty to me, the -ing customer, to have modern games running on their platform. It is not my duty to buy anything they deem to sell me just because they think they did me a favour.


universal purchase
It's not an universal purchase. The universal purchase would be on Steam if you got the Windows build too.

Hint: Baldur's Gate 3 gives you Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam for one price. Larian respects their customers. Did you see Apple promoting this game? No, they prefer to go for app store exclusives which no gamer with a brain will buy.
