iPhone 15 Pro will run console versions of some AAA games
Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4 Remake, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage, on iPhone!
We just crossed Apple’s “Wonderlust” event yesterday, where the Cupertino-based company announced the iPhone 15 series with USB-C, new upgrades, updated AirPods Pro 2, and Apple Watches with higher internal storage.
These new iPhone 15 Pro models are powerful enough to run “console versions” of popular AAA games, including Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4 Remake, and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Excited to play Assassin’s Creed Mirage on iPhone 15 Pro?
At yesterday’s event, Apple only briefly touched on the power of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max’s A17 Bionic chipset, and what we heard was pretty impressive.
Apple developed the new A17 Bionic chip with TSMC’s 3nm fabrication process. It also features USB 3 support, hardware-accelerated (not software; Apple was very clear about it) ray tracing, an AV1 encoder, and much more.
While all these improvements are superb, what came as a surprise was the Resident Evil Village (The eighth installment of the franchise) and one of 2023’s most anticipated AAA games, the Resident Evil 4 Remake announcement.
Both games are expected to debut on the iPhone 15 Pro series in 2023.
Not only that, these two massively successful Capcom AAA games will be accompanied by Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which is expected to arrive on the latest consoles and PC on October 4th.
Apple SVP Greg Joswiak stated that the Assassin’s Creed Mirage will arrive in early 2024. For the first time, the console version of Assassin’s Creed will be available on a smartphone, let alone iPhone.
However, it doesn’t end here. Popular delivery-stealth-sandbox Death Stranding from Kojima Productions is also coming to the iPhone 15 Pro series later in 2023.
While we have technically seen versions of Resident Evil and even Assassin’s Creed on iOS, those mobile games are far inferior to what Apple is currently promising with the iPhone 15 Pro line.
Sadly, Apple failed to mention how comfortably we could play these games. The company didn’t mention controller support, price, or any such details.
