The Resident Evil 4 remake will hit iPhone 15 Pro, iPad and Mac on December 20

The game will support Universal Purchase and cross-progression between Apple devices.


If you happen to open up a gift containing an iPhone 15 Pro, a iPad or even an M3-powered MacBook Pro this holiday season, you'll be able to play one of this year's biggest games on your new device pretty swiftly. Capcom has announced that the Resident Evil 4 remake will hit iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, as well as iPads and Macs powered by an M1 or later chipset, on December 20. The Separate Ways expansion will be available on the same day.

The remake of the 2005 survival horror classic will have Universal Purchase support, so you'll only need to buy it once to play it across iPhone, iPad and Mac. There's cross-progression too, so when you don't feel like sitting in front of your iMac anymore, you can move to your couch and continue where you left off on your iPhone or iPad.

You can try a chunk of the game for free before you decide to take the plunge and buy it. That'll give you a chance to see how well Resident Evil 4 runs on your device and figure out whether the touch controls on iPhone and iPad work for you, though there's controller support as well. You'll be able to play using a keyboard and mouse on Mac, if you prefer.

Apple has been focusing a bit more on bringing high-profile games to its devices as of late. Resident Evil Village is also available on iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max and Apple Silicon-powered iPads, while it emerged this week that 2022 hit Stray is coming to Mac in December. Assassin's Creed Mirage and Death Stranding are among the other games slated to hit Apple devices in the coming months.
