Grid Autosport for iPad and iPhone coming this spring

I never talk about iOS games, but this one is worth mentioning: GRID Autosport is coming to iPad and iPhone. Not only is GRID Autosport a serious, full-fledged racing game (easily one of the top racing games on Mac), it’s also a hardcore game that, once you bump all settings to Manual, can become a challenging simulation. That would be a first for iPad or iPhone. And just as the Mac version, Feral Interactive is in charge of Grid Autosport iPad and iPhone versions. We can, therefore, expect a solid port with good performance.   Can it deliver the complete...

Mafia 3 for Mac version is officially coming this year

This update was long overdue, but we now have confirmation that Mafia 3’s Mac version is coming soon. According to Aspyr Media, the game is scheduled for 2017. I first reported Mafia 3 was coming to consoles and Windows in June 2016, but little else was known at the time. Besides an out of the record confirmation from 2K at last year’s Gamescom event, it was still unknown when the Mac version of the game would be released and who would be in charge of the port. But everything is clear now: Mafia III heading to Mac in 2017!...

Evolve’s Mac version is officially dead

Update: Now that it is confirmed that Turtle Rock Studios has ended support for Evolve, we can confidently put the Mac version to bed. They tried their best to save the game, including a free-to-play format, but nothing could save this game.  We already knew that Evolve, the asymmetrical first-person shooter from Turtle Rock Studios, had both Mac and Linux version in the works. SteamDB already pointed to Mac and Linux builds a few months ago, but just last week they were updated again. SteamDB leaks are far from official. That said, they are often right. Since last week, both Mac...

There are over 4,500 Steam games for Mac

This is yet another important milestone for Mac gaming: There are over 4,500 Mac games on Steam. 4,547 to be precise. This is particularly impressive when you consider how often macOS is dismissed as a gaming platform. But the numbers speak for themselves: Mac gaming counts 4,500 games and close to 4 million active players (3,17% of 125 Million active users according to Valve) on Steam alone. And don’t forget about all the games that are not part of Steam, such as EA’s and And don’t forget about all the games that are not part of Steam, such as EA’s and Blizzard’s. The situation is clearly...

Dirt Rally is coming to Mac, but when?

This isn’t a new rumor. I first covered this in May 2016, but we never heard from Feral Interactive. Until last week. We knew Feral was working on Dirt Rally’s Mac version. But now that they officially announced it for Linux, we know it’s really coming. And just like the next iPhone, the only question remaining is when. Feral just went on record explaining why Total War: Warhammer and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided are still missing on Mac. You can read their detailed explanation, but all you need to know is that Apple’s Metal API is the problem. It seems the API...
