Great news: Mad Max is finally available on Mac starting today, October 20, 2016.
The announcement comes straight from Feral Interactive, the studio in charge of Mad Max for Mac and Linux.
Mad Max is an action-adventure game based on the Mad Max films and comes from the creators of the Just Cause series. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland and asks you to seek revenge on a gang of raiders. It also features car combat, exploration, and upgrades.
You can grab yourself a copy from the Mac App Store:
According to most reviewers, Mad Max is a fun game that takes place in a beautiful wasteland. Many praised the car combat mechanics and good graphics, but some complained about a poor story and repetitive melee combat.
In any case, I consider this a win, as the game comes as a complete surprise. Can you blame me? Just look at it:
The system requirements are the following:
Minimum Mac requirements:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.11.6
- Processor: Intel i5 3.2 GHz
- RAM: 8GB
- Hard Disk: 35GB
- Graphics: 2GB
Recommended Mac requirements:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.11.6 or higher
- Processor: Intel i7 3.6 GHz
- RAM: 16GB
- Hard Disk: 35GB
- Graphics: 4GB
You’ll notice that the graphics requirements are extremely demanding. If you don’t have a MacBook Pro, iMac or Mac Pro, I would stay away from this game.
I will test the Mac version on my iMac as soon as possible and share with you the results.
The biggest rumors, finally confirmed
This confirms the rumors coming from SteamDB. Back in March 2015, SteamDB spotted that someone was actively working on Mac and Linux versions:
It turns out, it was Feral.
Feral Interactive was also behind another big rumor: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, officially coming to Mac this year.
This leaves us with lots of confirmations and just a handful of unconfirmed leaks. Now let’s hope that Dark Souls will eventually become official…
