Apple has recently announced its big plans to bring popular high-profile console and PC games to its upcoming new mobile phone iPhone 15 Pro.
At a recent Apple event, the company revealed its newest line of iPhone mobile phones, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro. It was then confirmed that CAPCOM’s Resident Evil 4 Remake and Resident Evil Village will be available for the Prod device later this year.
Aside from the two Resident Evil titles, Ubisoft’s upcoming video game Assassin’s Creed Mirage is also coming to the iPhone 15 Pro, but later in early 2024. The Division Resurgence is also getting released on that device too.
“iPhone 15 Pro gets a major performance upgrade from the A17 Pro chip,” Apple claimed. “With a new 6-core GPU and a faster Neural Engine, it becomes a ridiculously powerful mobile gaming machine, enabling higher-quality graphics and rich, immersive game worlds never seen before on a smartphone.”
Sribalan Santhanam, VP of Apple’s silicon engineering group, said: “We’ve added brand new features to the GPU, like mesh shading, which lets games create detailed environments while drawing less power. And for the first time, we have hardware-accelerated ray tracing, featuring the fastest ray-tracing performance in any smartphone.”
Apple’s SVP of marketing, Greg Joswiak, also said: “This new level of performance will enable new games for iPhone 15 Pro that were previously only available on game consoles, PCs, or the Mac. This is the first time the console version of Assassin’s Creed will be natively available on a smartphone.”
