Kojima’s Death Stranding Director’s Cut is making its way to Apple devices. It wasn’t long before Capcom’s Resident Evil Village, followed by Resident Evil 4, was announced for multiple Apple devices. Kojima’s award-winning title will now be playable on Apple’s iPhone Pros models with the A17 Pro, iPad, iMac, and Macbook equipped with the M1 – M3 silicon and is priced at $39.99.
Since Apple debuted these processors, there has been talk that Apple is looking to get more involved with gaming, something that Apple devices weren’t known. Sure, there’s an Apple Arcade subscription service, but compared to PlayStation, Xbox, or even PC gaming, there wasn’t much there for gamers on Apple devices. However, times are changing, and it’s looking better for Apple device owners.
Given that I own an Apple Macbook Pro M1 with the useless touch bar (Hey, I got it on a whim), I gave Resident Evil 4 a spin, and while it wasn’t anything super exciting, I was impressed with what I played. The Macbook Pro wasn’t made for gaming, and given the low amount of RAM, the game ran decent. After that, I wonder if we’ll see the same performance from Death Stranding Director’s Cut when it gets released on January 30, 2024.
Sadly, this would have been a great get for Apple TV owners, but that set-top box is still powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic Chip, and there’s no word if or when it will receive an upgrade.
