Racing fans rejoice. Feral Interactive is bringing DiRT 4 to Mac in 2019.
Originally developed and published by Codemasters for Windows and consoles, DiRT 4 is the latest from Codemasters, the studio that brought you some of the best racing games for Mac: DiRT Rally, GRID Autosport, and F1 2017.
DiRT 4’s fleet of over 50 rally cars, buggies, and trucks includes the Ford Fiesta R5, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, Subaru WRX STI NR4 and more. You’ll put these incredible machines through their paces on the world’s most demanding rally routes, from the dirt roads of Australia to the hazardous snowdrifts of Sweden.
DiRT 4 will feature point-to-point Rally races, events from the official FIA World Rallycross Championship, challenges, and for the first time ever, you’ll be able to create your own rally routes.
DiRT 4 Mac system requirements
As usual, Feral Interactive won’t share the official Mac system requirements until the game is about to be released. In the meantime, we can assume the game will be powered by Apple’s Metal API and have similar requirements than its predecessor, DiRT Rally:
- OS: Mac OS 10.13
- Processor: 1.8GHz Intel Core i3
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: 1GB Nvidia 650M / 2GB AMD Radeon M290 / Intel HD 4000 graphics card or better
- Storage: 48 GB available space
The game is supported on all MacBook Pros released since mid-2012, Mac Minis released since late 2012 and iMacs released since late 2013.
Can you play DiRT 4 on Mac?
If the game is anything like DiRT Rally, you can expect a well optimized MacOS port that can run on virtually any recent Mac. We tested that game on several models a few months ago, and as you can see below, the game ran great on most machines:
You can find our detailed tests and results in our official Mac performance review.
Can you play DiRT 4 on a MacBook?
If the previous DiRT is of any indication, any MacBook Pro from 2013 onwards should be able to run it just fine. My 2016 MacBook Pro with integrated graphics handles it without breaking a sweat.
We will, of course, run benchmarks on DiRT 4 as soon as it’s available. Stay tuned.
DiRT 4 Mac download
As Feral Interactive always released Steam-Play enabled games, you should be able to buy the MacOS version of the game on Steam and any other store that deals with Steam keys, such as Humble Bundle or Fanatical.
As always, I recommend you wait before purchasing the game until it’s officially released for Mac. That way, the purchase will be counted as a Mac purchase, Feral Interactive gets paid for their port and everybody wins.
