Resident Evil Village Coming to Apple Silicon Macs
Japanese video game developer Capcom announced that its 2021 survival horror game, Resident Evil Village, will be coming to Macs. Specifically, it will be coming to all Macs running on Apple's in-house Apple Silicon ARM chips, starting on 28 October on the App Store.
Resident Evil Village was initially released in 2021, although it has only been available for PCs and consoles up to this point, as well as the soon-to-be-shuttered Google Stadia. Capcom is also working on a version of the title that will support the upcoming PlayStation VR2 headset for the PS5.
Resident Evil Village is a first-person game, similar to previous Resident Evil titles, that challenges players to scavenge their environment for items and equipment to advance. Set three years after Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, the game is set in a snowy Eastern European village. It follows protagonist Ethan Winters as he embarks on a journey to find his kidnapped infant daughter.
According to Capcom, Resident Evil Village is built on the first Mac version of the RE Engine Capcom game engine, which makes it compatible with M1 and M2 Macs that are running macOS Monterey or the new macOS Ventura — the latter was rolled out globally earlier today along with iPadOS 16.
The Mac version of the title also contains the Trauma Pack DLC, raccoon weapon parts and a Survival Resource Pack. While the game does not include Resident Evil: RE:Birth, Capcom says the Winters' Expansion will be coming in the near future. Winters' Expansion will introduce a new third-person mode along with a new story mode.
