Dragon Age Origin for Mac

Yes, it’s finally here: Dragon Age Origin for Mac. On many request we have the game finally ported to Mac using Porting Kit or Crossover. The game is massive over 45 GB and is not recommended to play on low-end macs with Intel HD GFX cards but minimum with Intel Iris GFX cards or Nvidia or AMD Radeon with at least 512MB Graphical Memory. Because Dragon Age Origin is a massive game, the installation can take up 45 minutes depending on your system and if you have SSD or HDD in your Mac. I played the game for a bit on my Intel Iris iMac and there it runs very well in all low video settings. I am still optimizing the game, so there might be an update of the port in the near future. If so I let you know on the blog.

Game description:
You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of this legendary order of guardians. With the return of mankind’s ancient foe and the kingdom engulfed in civil war, you have been chosen by fate to unite the shattered lands and slay the archdemon once and for all. Explore a stunning world, make complex moral choices, and engage in bone-crushing combat against massive and terrifying creatures.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 for Mac

Hooah! We keep it coming! We added Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 for Mac to Porting Kit and Crossover! I played the game for about 30 minutes without issues on my Medium end Intel Iris iMac (although the video card is even not supported by the game). High-end Macs are really recommended. Don’t expect miracles on low-end Macs like my Intel HD Macbook Air which did tun the game, although barely in low settings. I even tested a multi-player game which ran just fine :). Enjoy!

Game Description:
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is the only multi-platform, first-person, modern shooter exclusively designed around the sniper experience. It takes the bulls-eye precision of its predecessor to new and exciting heights, offering more diverse sniper challenges; a rebuilt AI system and the thrilling “one shot, one kill” precision that made the original a huge hit, selling 3 million copies worldwide. Taking advantage of the advanced capabilities of the CryENGINE3, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 also delivers striking graphic environments.
