“The incredibly atmospheric visuals. From a towering gothic castle to a sprawling, decrepit factory, each location is packed with jaw-dropping detail and a delicious sense of dread. And while you’re being hunted by Lady Dimitrescu—a 7-foot-tall vampire with giant claws—you can make Village’s visuals as fluid as they are frightening by enabling Metal 3’s MetalFX upscaling feature. Who knew terror could look so good?” Apple said in a blog post.
The game runs on Macs that run on Apple M1 chip and later, which means Intel-based Macs won’t be able to run the game. The game is available on the Mac App Store for $39.99 (roughly ₹3,290) and will also get the new Winters Expansion DLC soon.
