Revisit the terrifying Baker family as Resident Evil 7 comes to mobile, adding to Capcom’s ever-growing catalog of premium mobile game ports. However, much like Resident Evil Village and the recent Resident Evil 4 Remake, you can only play this fan favorite on the latest Apple products.

Resident Evil 7, “the scariest entry in the series,” according to Capcom, is making its way to the Apple App Store this summer, so you can experience Ethan Winters’ terrifying run-in with the Bakers all over again from anywhere in the world. Naturally, Capcom wants us to play the best Resident Evil games on the best hardware available, so the game only works on the iPhone 15 series of devices and any iPad or Mac with an M1 chip or later.

Since Resident Evil 7 is a premium game, Capcom and Apple are offering you the opportunity to play the beginning of the game for free at launch before committing to the full purchase. Additionally, if you’re a fan of the entire Apple ecosystem, Resident Evil 7 mobile supports full cross-progression between iPhone, iPad, and Mac, as well as Universal Purchase, so you can feel the fear at home or on the go without breaking the bank.

Both the iPhone and iPad build of Resident Evil 7 feature enhanced controls built for touchscreen gameplay, as well as an auto-fire option. Plus, you can use your favorite phone controllers or other Bluetooth-enabled controllers to mirror the console experience.
