WWDC 2022 heralds that MacBooks can finally handle video games, starting with Resident Evil Village.
Among the many new things to come out of Apple's WWDC 2022 keynote is the new Metal 3 graphics API. Put simply, that means gaming is more of a MacBook thing. The platform has never been one that prioritizes gaming performance, although the Pro models can be requisitioned for work.
But now MetalFX Upscaling will use the power of Apple's silicon to render low resolution graphics and scale them similar to Nvidia DLSS. Therefore, games will run more efficiently while seeking higher resolution.

Resident Evil Village will take advantage of the new API so you can take on the statuesque Lady Dimitrescu on your MacBook. Expect high-quality textures at 1080p resolution, with the final result in 4K.
No Man's Sky is also coming to Mac, and thanks to Metal 3's fast resource loading, gamers can expect fast load times and faster performance.
We still don't have a release date for the two MacBook titles; all we know for now is that they should arrive later this year.
