Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for Mac is finally available

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for Mac is finally here. Originally announced a year ago, this sequel to one of the best action RPGs ever made was released by Feral Interactive on December 12, 2017.

Just like its predecessor, Mankind Divided is a shooter that offers choice. Missions can be tackled in myriad different ways, with multiple routes and tactical options available. You can use hacking, stealth or brute force. The game also lets you customize Jensen's augmentations to suit your play style.

The reviews are good so far and you can expect a reliable and smooth port from Feral Interactive. You can find the game on Humble Bundle:

Mankind Divided is powered by Metal 2 and if you wonder whether your machine has the chops to run it, don't miss our Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Mac Performance Review.

Mankind Divided on Mac: Everything you need to know

Is Metal finally ready for today's requirements? All signs point to a resounding yes.

Mankin Divided was the last remaining game on standby, and with its release, most technical difficulties Metal caused have been lifted.

These are the game's official system requirements:

  • 3GHz Intel Core i5 processor
  • OS 10.13.1
  • 8GB RAM
  • 2GB AMD Radeon M290 or better

The game is supported on all these models:

  • All 15" MacBook Pros released since late 2016
  • All 21.5" Retina 4K iMacs released since 2017
  • All 27" Retina 5K iMacs released since late 2014
  • All Mac Pros released since late 2013

Also, the 15" Retina MacBook Pro released in mid-2015 with an AMD Radeon R9 M370X is capable of running the game but does not have official support.

Warning: Pay special attention to the system requirements before you make the purchase. This is one great looking game, but that also means it's extremely demanding. My 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2016 couldn't even launch it during our Performance Review...

But why did it take so long?

You probably know the answer. Apple's Metal API.

Metal was missing some key features that prevented developers from delivering Mac ports up to today's standards. This is what Feral had to say back in January 2017:

It’s likely you’ll see games for Linux and iOS popping up, but that doesn’t mean we’re putting any less effort into bringing games to Mac.

Quite the opposite, we’re working like technodwarfs to bring you Total War: WARHAMMER, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and several other great games the way we all want them — finished, polished, and running as well as they can.

But then in March 2017, macOS Sierra 10.12.4 was released and many Metal-enabled games started to appear, including Feral's own Total War: Warhammer and F1 2017.

You can download it from Humble Bundle:

      Same here man, macOS needs a good first-person game to show off 🙂

    This is great news! Human Revolution is one of my favorite games and Mankind sounds like another hit.

      Indeed Bruce. This is one of the few known upcoming Mac games I am really waiting for. There are other very good ones too, but not always my favorite genres. Deus Ex though...

    I wonder if the game will look and feel similarly to its Windows version, because Dying Light for Mac still has certain visual issues and bugs on Mac (not to mention its helluva high sysreqs comparing to the Windows version). But considering that the Deux Ex port is being made by Feral, I hope there's nothing to worry about. 🙂 Can't wait to buy the game and play it on my Mac.

      Feral quality is another thing. No need to worry.

    I have a new 2017 MBP 2.9/16/560. The game runs terribly. Anyone else tried it? Anyone running it well PLEASE share settings on their machine.
