See how PUBG simply smashed Steam's top user record more than once, I'm sure you've wondered if PUBG for Mac will ever happen.
After all, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds (or PUGB card) run on Unreal Motor 4, the same engine used by other Battle Royale shooters available on Mac. So why not support macOS ?
Why does PUBG not support Mac?
Such a question is usually left unanswered, but this time, Brendan Green replied, the game's creator himself. Too bad it was not what we wanted to hear … In an interview at the 2017 Gamescom conference, Green said (translated with Google Chrome):
There are just not enough Linux players. The same goes for Mac. We just don't have enough resources at the moment. Not on the road map. I'm sorry.
And then it seems that we will never be able to experience PUBG on Mac.
I usually don't write about games that might one day make it to MacOS. Most developers don't even take the time to recognize the Mac platform or answer related questions, so why bother writing about their games.
This time is different. At least PUBG Corporation recognized that other platforms exist. Brendan Green did it himself, and despite giving an answer we would not hear, there would be no more uncertainty about it …
So where does it leave us?
How to play PUBG on Mac
This is not for everyone, but if you are open to running Windows on Mac, you can probably play Playerunknown's Battlegrounds on it as well (available on Steam) . We definitely prefer to play MacOS games only but exceptions can be made for the games we absolutely need to play.
If PUBG is that game for you, there are several methods you can use to run it on Mac. Each method has clear advantages and disadvantages so it will be up to you (and the performance requirements of the game) to decide which one is right for you:
When it comes to running Windows games on Mac, performance and cost are the main drivers . That's why I prefer Boot Camp. But if a monthly fee is acceptable to you, streaming services have come a long way and are today an excellent re-election.
PUBG "Mac" System Requirements
Unless you go with a streaming solution, the system requirements remain critical. Especially for a demanding game such a PUBG. You will not be able to find official PUBG Mac requirements, but if you are thinking of using Boot Camp, the game's Windows requirements are still valid:
- A 64-bit processor and operating system
- Processor: Intel Core i5-4430  Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2 GB / AMD Radeon R7 370 2 GB
- DirectX: Version 11
- Storage: 30 GB free space
But what if you are not willing to handle Windows? Are there worthy alternatives to PUBG on Mac?
Top Playerunknown's Battlegrounds Mac Options
We've covered the best FPS games for Mac before, but if I had to recommend someone, these are our favorites:
But what if you look specifically at Battle Royale game? Don't worry, there are a few good MacOS native options at your disposal:
Fortnite: Battle Royale
The King of Bottle Royale games, and arguably the most famous game ever released, Fortnite is why most Macs players don & # 39; Don't even worry about PUBG anymore. Fortnite is not only known because of its unique take on the genre (you can also build structures). It is also extremely popular, fun and free to play .

Fortnite is a of our favorite shooters in general on Mac, and because it can be played for free, there is no reason not to try for yourself:
One of the most popular games ever, Fortnite is an excellent shooter and a generously free-to-play game
Our point: ★★★★ ☆
CS: GO Danger Zone
Perhaps not as fashionable as Fortnite, Counter-Strike is still one of the most famous shooters Released from Valve Software, CS: GO has been known in years as the king of LAN parties and competitive shooters.
And while it remains true, CS: GO recently expanded to become free to play and introduce a Battle Royale mode of its own : Danger Zone. Want to know more about it?

While PUBG, Fornite and CS: GO are clearly competing against each other, Super Animal Royale does its own thing.
Still on Early Access, Super Animal Royale is an intense top-down 2D fighting royal game where up to 64 cute (murderous) animals fight to death over several exotic biomes.
The game is $ 10.99, but it also offers a Super Free Edition that lets you play the game completely online and progress synchronizes to the full version!
