If you’re eager to get your hands on the newly unveiled iPhone 15 Pro version of the Resident Evil 4 remake, be prepared to shell out the full price of a console game. As disclosed in the Resident Evil 4 App Store listing, the base game will carry a $59.99 price tag upon its release later this year. This pricing aligns with the initial launch price on the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X, which debuted back in March.
For those craving additional content, there’s an extra DLC pack available for $19.99, along with in-app purchases for weapon upgrades ranging from $2.99 to $9.99. While Capcom has yet to specify an exact release date for the game (the App Store placeholder date is December 31st), preorders are currently open, and the game is anticipated to hit the market before the close of 2023.
Furthermore, Resident Evil Village, a slightly older title within the franchise, is set to land on the iPhone 15 Pro and M1-powered iPads (or higher) on October 30th, priced at $39.99.
At first glance, the Resident Evil 4 price might appear steep, especially when compared to conventional mobile games or free-to-play adaptations. However, Apple is asserting that the iPhone 15 Pro is fully equipped to deliver console-level gaming performance, making the console-like pricing seem justifiable if it lives up to these expectations.
For those who wish to gauge the game’s performance before making a purchase, a limited portion of the base game will be accessible for free. Additionally, the Resident Evil 4 remake will support universal purchase, allowing customers who buy it for either the iPhone 15 Pro or an iPad or MacBook equipped with an M1 chip (or a later model) to enjoy the game across all three devices without the need for a repurchase.
