Announced during Apple’s 2015 WWDC keynote, Fortnite for Mac is finally available.
Fortnite aims to become a free-to-play game at some point in 2008, but in the meantime, it will cost you $39.99 or more to take part of the game’s open beta (read: unfinished version). The open beta was released on July 25, 2017.
Besides the frustrating fact that you will need to pay in order to play an unfinished game that will become free once completed, Fortnite is an incredible tower defense shooter that uses new Apple’s Metal engine.
Fortnite is a construct-and-defend sandbox game that aims to combine exploration, building, and action. Fortnite is a big departure from Epic’s Unreal Tournament or Gears of War games, but their plans show promise.
Celebrating 1 million players with a new game mode
Some critics claim the progression system is tedious and boring. Still, it hasn’t prevented more than one million players from paying for an unfinished game.
To celebrate the occasion, Epic Games released a new survival mode on August 29, 2017. Survival mode will challenge you to build a base and fend off waves of enemies for up to 14 in-game days. And in exchange, players shall receive “amazing” goodies.

Fortnite on Mac: Everything you need to know
Fortnite still has a long way to go, but seeing how popular it already is and how great it looks, I can’t help being excited. You can check our detailed Fortnite Mac Performance Review to see if you can run it.
For the time being, this is a demanding game. Epic will probably manage to optimize all versions of the game some more, but don’t expect a miracle as this is one great-looking game.
The minimum system requirements are:
- Graphics: Intel HD 4000
- Processor: 2.4 GHz Intel Core i3
- RAM: 4 GB
- OS: Sierra 10.12.6
The recommended system requirements are the following:
- Graphics: Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent
- Video RAM: 2 GB
- Processor: 2.8 GHz Core i5
- RAM: 8 GB
Epic’s macOS support has been top notch and because of that, they can take my money too.
