The upcoming iPhone 15 Pro version of the Resident Evil 4 remake will be priced at $59.99, the same as its console counterparts. The game is set to release later this year, although an official date has not been announced. Preorders are currently available, and it is expected to launch before the end of 2023. In addition to the base game, there will be a DLC pack priced at $19.99, as well as in-app purchases ranging from $2.99 to $9.99 for weapon upgrades. Some limited content will be available for free for players to test the game’s performance before purchasing.
Apple is emphasizing that the iPhone 15 Pro is capable of running console-level games, justifying the console game prices for the Resident Evil 4 remake. The company highlights the device’s performance and positions it as a suitable platform for immersive gaming experiences. While the price may seem steep compared to traditional mobile games or free-to-play ports, Apple believes that it is reasonable given the capabilities of the device.
Moreover, the Resident Evil 4 remake will support universal purchase, allowing customers to buy it once and play it across multiple devices. Whether playing on the iPhone 15 Pro, an iPad, or a MacBook equipped with an M1 chip or later, users won’t need to repurchase the game. This feature aims to enhance convenience and flexibility for players who own multiple Apple devices.
