Resident Evil 4 Remake is now available on iPhone 15 Pro, iPad, Mac for half price

Resident Evil 4, the acclaimed 2023 remake of the 2005 survival horror classic, is now available on iPhone 15 Pro and select iPad and Mac models. The game was released on compatible Apple devices on Wednesday. Although RE4 is listed as free in Apple's App Store, access to the full title requires in-app purchases. RE4 Remake was originally released on March 24 for PC and consoles and received critical acclaim for the visual and mechanical improvements it brought to 2005's Resident Evil 4. The remake also earned three nominations at this year's The Game Awards, including the top prize for Game of the. year.

Publisher Capcom showed off the Resident Evil 4 remake for Apple devices at the iPhone 15 series launch event in September. The graphics-intensive title, originally to be played on PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series S/X, will run on iPhone thanks to Apple's new A17 Pro GPU, which is featured in the latest iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. RE4 Remake is also playable on iPad Pro and iPad Air models running M1 and M2 chips and Mac models with M1, M2 or M3 chips.

The App Store rating for Resident Evil 4 was released in September, with the game priced at a hefty Rs. 3599. A small portion of the base game can be played for free, but the full game requires an in-app purchase. However, the main game is available on Application store Now with a 50 percent discount, which reduces the price of the base game (with bonus) to GEL. 1799. The sale ends on January 17 and all purchases made before the date will include bonus attache cases and charms. Separate Ways DLC and Extra DLC Pack are priced at Rs. 589 and Rs. 859, respectively.

Playing without a compatible controller messes up the touchscreen on iPhone and iPad with on-screen touch control buttons. Apple also recommends playing with a controller. It's also worth noting that RE4 save data cannot be uploaded or downloaded between macOS and iOS devices. The game requires iOS 17.0 or later on iPhone 15 Pro models, iPadOS 17.0 on compatible iPad models, and macOS 13.0 or later on compatible Macs.

Resident Evil 4 puts you in the role of federal agent Leon S. Kennedy, who was tasked with rescuing the president's daughter. He follows her to a remote village in the Spanish countryside, only to discover a dangerous cult with terrifying secrets and a legion of followers standing in her way. Primarily a survival horror title, RE4 features a third-person shooter with an “over-the-shoulder” perspective – a common gameplay trope in action titles that was first established in the original Resident Evil 4.

In addition to the RE4 remake, Capcom also released Resident Evil Village, a 2021 first-person survival horror title, on iPhone 15 Pro phones and iPads M1 and up on October 30.
