Resident Evil Village iOS Launches Just In Time For Halloween
The iPhone and iPad will be extra spooky this October.
After announcing that Resident Evil Village will be coming to iPhone and iPad during the recent Apple keynote, Capcom has revealed the game will be available on the Apple App Store on October 30, just in time for the Halloween season.
The game will be available specifically for the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, iPad Air, and iPad devices, as it runs using the new devices' A17 chipset. The game will launch for $39.99 on the App Store, with the downloadable Winters Expansion available separately for $19.99, and those who purchase both will receive a new outfit for Rose in the DLC.
Capcom also confirmed that the Resident Evil 4 remake that released on consoles and PC in March will join Village on iPhone and iPad "later this year," though a specific release date was not announced. Both RE Village and RE4 will utilize Apple's Universal Purchase technology and cross-progression on iPhone and iPad, though the RE4 port will also allow for cross-progression with the Mac version.
The two Resident Evil games were announced for iOS devices at the September 12 Apple keynote, along with Death Stranding and Assassin's Creed Mirage. During the event, Apple said the new iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max can provide "next-level mobile gaming with fast, efficient performance and hardware-accelerated ray tracing," and early previews show they can plug directly into a monitor with good results.
Resident Evil Village first launches on consoles May 7, 2021. GameSpot's official review called it "an intelligent reintroduction of the best action elements of Resident Evil," while also saying that while it "captures some of the same things that made RE7 such a breath of fresh air, Village evolves to become its own unique creature."
