Top 20 Mac Open World Games 2019

Top 20 Mac Open World Games 2019


– [Narrator] Many of the
best open-world games are available on Mac, so today, I am sharing 20 of the best
ones on offer for you guys. Starting at number 20, we have Mafia III. Despite all the negative
feedback this game received, personally, I still really enjoy it. It has amazing gun combat,
terrific music that completely immerses you into the era
that the game is set in, and the voice acting is top notch. Plus, the Mac version doesn’t
seem to have really any bugs compared to the Windows version. At least on my experience,
I noticed nothing. The main problem for me
with Mafia III is that many of the missions are quite similar, so overtime, it can become
somewhat repetitive. Still, it’s worth taking a look at for the technical achievement
with the Metal API and is just a really fun game
in terms of the gun combat. Mafia III will work on
a 15-inch MacBook Pro or an iMac with a two-gigabyte
or better graphics card. Number 19 is Sky: Children of The Light. Sky has arrived on iPhone and iPad, but the Mac version will
release sometime later in 2019, so it’s not out yet on Mac. It’s a social adventure game
where you can join friends or meet random players and
explore stunning worlds together. I was lucky because the
developers gave me access to the macOS invite-only beta, and based on my own experience,
the game runs really well, even on low-end Macs. I tested it on a MacBook
Air and it runs great. Plus, the game is so much
better on a bigger screen compared to when playing
on mobile, for instance. The developer thatgamecompany
have also informed me that Sky will have full
controller support for Mac, which is fantastic news. Anyway, Sky: Children of Light should run well on most Macs back to 2012. (mellow music) Number 18, we have The
LEGO Movie 2 Videogame. In early 2019, Feral Interactive ported this new LEGO game to Mac. It follows the events of the movie, but also adds in never
before seen events, too. Compared to the other
LEGO games out there, this one has been built for
an open-world environment, so you can journey into outer
space, discover new words, fight enemies, and build and build and build and build
lots of LEGO formations. There are over 100 characters
from the LEGO Movie 2 and first film here, and there are lots of
amazing locations to see. The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is supported on most Macs back to 2012. Number 17 is Subnautica and
the Below Zero Expansion. I’m combining two games here,
the base game Subnautica, plus the standalone expansion, Below Zero. In both games, you can explore the depths of an alien underwater world
that is filled with creatures to see and incredible
environments to discover. You can build bases,
craft tools and weaponry, explore with a submarine and much more. The major different with
Below Zero is that it adds in a story and purpose, and your
character has a voice now. Both games should run well
on Macs from 2014 onwards. Number 16, we have Minecraft. Guys, Minecraft really
shouldn’t need an introduction. Everyone knows it. But if somehow, you managed
to miss one of the most famous indie of all time, well, basically, Minecraft allows you to use
blocks to build anything and everything you could ever imagine. It’s an old game now, but it’s still overwhelmingly
popular in 2019. Minecraft is not a very demanding game, so it can run well on some
much older Macs out there. Number 15 is The Signal From Tolva. Set on a distant future planet, The Signal From Tolva is all
about combat and exploration. The world is stunning,
yet also, really weird with a sprawling tranquil alien landscape. The game doesn’t tell you much
when you first jump into it, leaving the decisions
up to you, the player. You’ll need to survive hazards,
navigate the environments, recruit alien robots,
use powerful weapons, and solve puzzles. When you start a game, it can
feel a little boring at first, as the gameplay is quite
simple, but after an hour or so, it can become more interesting. The Signal From Tolva is best played on 15-inch MacBook Pros or an iMac. Number 14, we have Farming Simulator 19. Farming Simulator 19 features
a new graphics engine that provides the best looking
visuals and effects yet, but also brings you the deepest
farming experience to date. You can take control of
vehicles and machines, develop and expand your farm, grow cops, tend to your livestock, rise
horses, and so much more. It also features an online
mode with up to 16 players and it has community-created mods. The game is best played on recent Macs with a two-gigabyte or
better graphics card. Number 13 is The Long Dark. If you’re looking for a
survival open-world game on Mac, look towards The Long Dark. It’s a solo game that has no zombies; only you, the cold, and the
threats from Mother Nature. There is a campaign here or you can just go into the survival
mode that is a free-form, non-narrative survival sandbox experience. In 2018, the game received a redux update, bringing a new mission structure, story beats, dialogue, animations, etc. It’s can be quite slow at times, but that is really the appeal of it. It’s a true survival game
that requires you to explore and explore some more. The Long Dark can run on
some older Macs back to 2011. Number 12, we have The
Elder Scrolls Online. Recently, this MMORPG
was updated to 64-bit and uses the Vulkan API on Mac, so it runs much better than ever. In addition, many new
expansions have arrived since it’s initial release. We have Morrowind, Summerset, and the Elsweyr expansion, for instance. The game has you battling,
crafting, stealing, exploring amazing worlds, and you can use different equipment and abilities as you progress through the stories. It has a heavy focus on
being a multiplayer RPG, so you can play with
friends or random players and go on quests together or just explore the awesome landscapes. The Elder Scrolls Online is best played on new MacBook Pros or an iMac. Number 11, we have Rust. Rust is an open-world survival game. You will need to overcome struggles, such as hunger, thirst, and cold. Then, you can build a shelter,
kill animals for meat, and most importantly, protect
yourself from other players. The players in this game are crazy, so it’s best to form
alliances with other players, so you don’t just keep
dying over and over. Rust also has a battle royal mode now and other multiplayer PVP modes, too, if that’s something you’re after. Just note that Rust is one
of the most demanding games on Mac and will struggle to play above low to medium settings
on most Macs out there. It should only be played on Macs with a two-gigabyte or
better graphics card. Number 10 is The Witness. If you’re looking for an
open-world puzzle game on your Mac, The Witness is by far
the best option for you. It has very creative, unique,
and challenging puzzles, and some of the best visuals
I’ve ever seen in a video game. It all takes place on an island that is filled with
puzzles and more puzzles and lots and lots of more puzzles. To unlock parts of the island
and in the end, escape, you’ll need to solve over 500 puzzles. The game isn’t for everyone. If you don’t like puzzle games, I don’t recommend getting this game. Anyway, The Witness is
not a demanding game, so it can run well on Macs back to 2012. Number nine, we have
Don’t Starve Together. Don’t Starve Together is a standalone multiplayer expansion for Don’t Starve. so you and other players
will enter a weird world that is full of creatures,
dangers, and surprises. To survive, you need to
explore, gather resources, craft items, and build structures to hold back dangerous creatures. You can either play with
friends in private games or if you want, you can play
with random people online. The game is still very popular today, so you won’t have any
issues with finding people. Don’t Starve Together can
run on most Macs out there. Number eight is LEGO DC Super-Villains. On the 30th of July,
2019, Feral Interactive ported this new LEGO
adventure game to macOS. It’s similar to The
Lego Movie 2 Videogame, being an open-world
action-adventure title. But in this one, you can
create your own super villain and then, modify your character’s looks, weapons, and personality. Players can explore locations
from the DC universe, solve puzzles, overcome obstacles,
and battle the good guys. You’ll be joined by the Joker,
Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor, and many others from the Injustice League. Anyway, LEGO DC Super-Villains is supported on Macs back to 2012. Number seven, we have
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Back in 2015, this was one of the best triple A games on our platform. Sure, we don’t have the
follow-up game on Mac, but Shadow of Mordor is still
worth your time in 2019. The game takes place in the
60-year gap between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings. The gameplay is superb here. You can inflict brutal combos
with your sword, dagger, and magic wraith powers in dramatic, free-flowing melee combat. You can also use a Nemesis
System, where enemy relationships and characteristics are
shaped by player actions and decisions to create
enemies that remember and adapt to the player. Shadow of Mordor is best played
on Macs from 2014 and up. Number six is Borderlands 2. In June 2019, Borderlands 2 received a huge update for Mac computers. ASPYR Media converted the game from 32-bit to 64-bit and brought
us the Ultra HD Pack. All this was in preparation
for the full release of macOS Catalina, which
doesn’t support 32-bit apps. Plus, in June, the game
received a new expansion. It is an all new adventure
that sets the stage for the upcoming Borderlands
3, which, by the way, is yet to show a Mac version, but let’s keep our fingers crossed. But I expect ASPYR may
bring Borderlands 3 to Mac, knowing their previous
history with this series. Due to these new updates to Borderlands 2, the game is now best played
on Macs from 2012 and up. It’s also worth sharing
that The Pre-Sequel is no longer on sale for Mac. Number five, we have Batman: Arkham City. Recently, the developer of
this game, Feral Interactive, updated Arkham City to 64-bit and brought support for the Metal API. You’re getting the Game
of the Year Edition here, which includes new gameplay
content, seven maps, three playable characters, and 12 skins beyond the
original release back in 2012. Anyway, Arkham City can run on Macs all the way back to 2012. Number four is Stardew Valley. This is my favorite simulation game on Mac or maybe just period. It allows you to grow farms,
explore, buy and sell, talk to NPCs, engage in
combat, and much more. It’s now available on pretty
much any platform out there, from the desktop, laptop,
mobile, and console. That is remarkable. Stardew Valley can run
on most Macs out there. Number three, we have Sleeping
Dogs: Definitive Edition. Sleeping Dogs takes place in Hong Kong and you play as an undercover
cop tasked with taking down powerful and dangerous
criminal organizations from the inside out. You can do so much in
this game; drive cars, engage in melee combat, shoot
weapons, play mini-games, throw people in the back
of your car, and so on. If you haven’t played this game, I highly, highly suggest you do. You’re also getting the
Definitive Edition here, which includes new visual
improvements and audio, all previous DLC, including
the story-expanding episode, Year of the Snake and the horror-themed Nightmare in North Point. Sleeping Dogs can run on some older Macs back to 2013 or 2012. Number two is Dying Light. Without failure, this is the
best zombie game on macOS right now and probably one of
the best-looking games, too. It mixes parkour with
a huge, huge open world and the fact that it was ported to Mac is really quite an achievement. There is a very lengthy
campaign here, too, that is also filled with
small quests on the side, too. You’ll also need to scavenge
for supplies and weapons to help defeat the hordes of zombies, and over time, you’ll start
crafting badass weapons, too. We don’t know yet if Dying
Light 2 is coming to Mac, but let’s hope it eventually
sees a Mac version. Dying Light is very demanding, though, and is best played on 15-inch MacBook Pros or an iMac with a two-gigabyte
or better graphics card. Number one, we have Mad Max. Easily, this is the best
open-world game on Mac, for me at least, and overall,
is such an underrated game out there in the public eye. I was so excited when Feral
Interactive ported this game to Mac because it just goes
to show what our platform is capable of in terms of triple A gaming. It’s seriously such an in-depth game in terms of what it has on offer. The world is very gritty, the
combat and shooting is intense and fun, and the driving
is fast and well-polished. They also captured the look and feel of the 2015 movie here, too. You don’t have to have seen the movie to enjoy the game either, but
it’s just a fun little touch if you wanna be immersed
into the whole Mad Max world. Anyway, Mad Max is a fairly demanding game and should be played on new Macs, but somehow, it is supported
on some Macs back to 2013. What do you think of
these open-world games? I think what we have on
offer here is impressive and I hope to see some new
additions in the coming years. If you found this video
