The highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 remake finally arrived on iPhone, iPad, and Mac on December 20, 2023, bringing the critically acclaimed reimagining of a gaming classic to a whole new audience.
Resident Evil 4 remake: Your mobile horror adventure awaits
The remake faithfully recreates the original game’s story, following Leon S. Kennedy as he investigates the kidnapping of the president’s daughter, Ashley Graham. Along the way, he encounters the Ganado villagers, infected by a mysterious parasite, the enigmatic Ada Wong, and the fanatical cult leader Osmund Saddler.
But the remake is much more than just a graphical overhaul. It features new gameplay mechanics, such as over-the-shoulder aiming, crafting, and improved melee combat. The environments have also been completely revamped, with stunning visuals and immersive lighting.
Optimized for Apple devices
Resident Evil 4 takes advantage of the powerful A17 Pro chip in iPhone 15 Pro models, enabling hardware-accelerated ray tracing and stunning visuals that rival console versions. It’s also compatible with iPads with M1 chips or later and all Apple silicon Macs.
The gameplay is refined for modern thrills
- Over-the-shoulder aiming: Shoot your way through hordes of Ganado with precision and control. Remember, headshots are your friend (especially with those chainsaw maniacs).
- Parrying like a pro: Master the art of deflecting attacks with your knife, turning defense into offense in a satisfyingly brutal ballet.
- Resource management on the go: Craft ammo and healing items from scavenged resources, making every bullet and herb precious in this fight for survival.
- Ashley won’t be a liability: Capcom promises improvements to Ashley’s AI, minimizing those “wait there!” screams.
Touch and controller
- Touch controls optimized for mobile: Aim, shoot, and dodge with intuitive on-screen buttons designed for smooth gameplay on the go.
- Controller compatibility for a console-like experience: Connect your PlayStation or Xbox controller for a familiar, precise feel.
Overall, the Resident Evil 4 remake on iPhone, iPad, and Mac is a faithful and impressive port of a modern classic. With its optimized controls, stunning visuals, and chilling atmosphere, it’s a must-play for fans of the series and newcomers alike. Just be prepared for some jump scares and tense encounters with the Ganado hordes!
Resident Evil 4 remake can be downloaded for free from the App Store, but the full game requires an in-app purchase. However, there is a special launch discount that offers the game for half price until January 17, 2024.
