Resident Evil Village is coming to Mac later this year

During WWDC, Apple and Capcom revealed that Resident Evil Village will be coming to the Mac later this year.

Capcom advanced technical research division manager Masaru Ijuin came out during WWDC to talk about the Mac version. Ijuin says that the game can run at 1080p on a MacBook Air M2, while a Mac Studio can support up to 4K.

It’s a significant development, as Mac computers have historically had compatibility trouble with many games. Usually, Mac owners need to resort to dual-booting Windows on their devices to run games through Steam. It’s worth noting that Resident Evil Village can technically be played on Mac devices today via Google Stadia.

The announcement was part of a larger gaming focus at WWDC this year. During the show, Apple gave new details on the Metal software that’s used in Apple products, which is being upgraded to Metal 3. It will support MetalFX Upscaling, which renders smaller and less-intensive frames and then upscales them. Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky will be one of the first games to support MetalFX Upscaling when it arrives on Mac later this year.

Village coming to Mac is the latest in a long line of updates and developments for the critically acclaimed horror game. Last week, Sony announced that Resident Evil Village is also getting PlayStation VR2 support for its PlayStation 5 version. The game was first released May 7, 2021, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia.

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.

Resident Evil 4’s best speedrunning glitch removed in latest update

Capcom has issued a patch for the Resident Evil 4 remake, which includes a handful of bug fixes, as well as the removal of a popular speedrun glitch. The glitch previously allowed players to warp through doors, leading to some incredibly fast completion times in the remake.

Known as the Scope Glitch, players could continuously aim down the sights of a scoped weapon while standing behind a locked door to clip through it, removing the need to find keys or alternate routes. The glitch was a bit finicky to perform, but expert speedrunners were able to consistently clip through locked doors, allowing players to skip boss fights and other sections of the game.
