iPhone 15 Pro can natively run the latest Resident Evil and Assassin’s Creed games

In a major stride forward for mobile gaming, Apple announced during today’s event that console games like Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Resident Evil 4‘s remake, and Resident Evil Village are coming to the iPhone 15 Pro. These aren’t watered-down mobile spinoffs or cloud-streamed games either; they’re running natively with the help of the A17 Pro chip.

During the gaming segment of Tuesday’s Apple event, the power of the iPhone 15 Pro’s A17 Pro chip was highlighted. The 3-nanometer chip has 19 billion transistors, a six-core CPU, a 16-core Neural Engine that can handle 35 trillion operations per second, and a six-core GPU that supports things like mesh shading and hardware-accelerated ray tracing in video games. Several game developers were featured following its introduction to explain and show off just how powerful the A17 Pro Chip is. While this segment started with games already native to mobile, like The Division Resurgence, Honkai: Star Rail, and Genshin Impact, it didn’t take long for some games made for systems like PS5 and Xbox Series X to appear.

Capcom’s Tsuyoshi Kanda showed up and revealed that natively running versions of Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil 4 are coming to the iPhone 15 Pro before the end of the year. Later, Apple confirmed that Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which launches next month on PC and consoles, will also get a native iPhone 15 Pro port in early 2024, while Death Stranding is slated for a 2023 iPhone 15 Pro launch.

Historically, console-quality games like these have been impossible to get running on a mobile phone without the use of cloud gaming. Confirming that these three AAA games can all run natively on iPhone 15 Pro is certainly an impactful way for Apple to show just how powerful the A17 Pro chip is.

Splitgate 2: release date window, trailers, gameplay, and more
A character in pink armor and a player character with two guns pointing towards a yellow portal in Splitgate 2.

In 2021, the original Splitgate became an overnight success when word spread about its beta. It blended the best elements of arena shooters with the mind-bending mechanics of Portal. Instead of simply running and shooting around a map, all players had the ability to create portals to flank and create new sightlines through. This opened up a ton of possibilities, and yet the game was almost immediately abandoned after reaching 1.0. Now, developer 1047 Games is back with a full sequel. Splitgate 2 isn't just a few more maps and guns, but a full-on sequel. Let's jump through this portal and get the drop on all the details about this new game.
Release date window

Splitgate 2 only has a rough release window of 2025. There's no way to tell right now when next year it will come, but it would be safer to assume in the second half.
Platforms
Splitgate 2 will be available for most platforms when it is released. This includes PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. It will also be free-to-play so everyone is welcome to jump in and give it a shot.
