Mad Max for Mac is now Available

There you have it. Mad Max for Mac is finally available. The game was released 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.

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.

Mad Max 3 on Mac: Everything you need to know

You'll notice the graphics requirements are extremely demanding, but that is to be expected from most open-world action games. Mafia 3 is another example of a great-looking, yet very demanding, action game. Sleeping Dogs is another one.

These are Mad Max minimum system requirements:

  • OS: OS X 10.11.6
  • Processor: Intel i5 3.2 GHz
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Hard Disk: 35GB
  • Graphics: 2GB

These are the recommended requirements:

  • OS: OS X 10.11.6 or higher
  • Processor: Intel i7 3.6 GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Hard Disk: 35GB
  • Graphics: 4GB

My recommendation? Unless you have a machine with a high-end dedicated graphics card, I would stay away from this game...

The biggest rumors, finally confirmed

This is yet another example that proves the rumors coming out of SteamDB are to be taken seriously. Back in March 2015, SteamDB spotted that someone was actively working on Mac and Linux versions.

And many months later, it is confirmed it was Feral Interactive.

Feral Interactive was also behind another big rumor: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, also coming to Mac this year.

This leaves us with lots of confirmations and just a handful of rumors. Now let's hope that Dark Souls will soon become official...

You can download Mad Max on Steam.

    Just to send a small feedback on this game, I tested it on my mid-2014 15" Retina Macbook Pro (i7 2,8 GHz and gt-750m GPU) and it runs great! Didn't maxed the graphics settings (have not tried), but with average settings it is very good looking and it is perfectly fluid. Very happy! 😉

      That's good to hear. This is a quite demanding game, so I expect many MacBooks to struggle. Good to hear that yours can handle it. Although , yours is pretty impressive! Dedicated graphics and an i7 processor!

    Anyone tested it on officially unsupported integrated graphics?

    Despite the outrageous system requirements (2 GB VRAM, what the heck), this is actually no bad port at all.

    Tested it on my late 2016 13" MacBook Pro (Iris 550), which misses the minimum requirements big time, and other than a warning on first launch stating that the hardware was not supported, there were no issues whatsoever.

    Scaled to half native resolution (1280x800) and on minimum settings, the game runs perfectly smooth, which is a neat surprise considering the demanding requirements.
