Assassin's Creed: Shadows, Palworld, Control, And More Coming To Mac

Apple seems to be getting more serious about gaming as Assassin's Creed Shadows and more titles head to Mac.


Gamers have come to expect that most of the AAA titles are going to available on either consoles or PC. But at this year's Worldwide Developer's Conference, Apple signaled its increased focus on gaming by bringing some pretty big games to Mac. As a centerpiece for that shift, Ubisoft announced that Assassin's Creed Shadows is coming to Mac on November 15, the same day that it's hitting PC and consoles.

"At Ubisoft, our mission is to enrich players' lives by creating original and memorable gaming experiences," said Ubisoft producer Marc-Alexis Côté during WWDC. "We see a huge opportunity to share our passion for games to more players in the Apple ecosystem thanks to the unified gaming platform with tight integration of Metal and Apple silicon."

According to Apple, the new Game Porting Toolkit 2 will allow developers like Ubisoft to bring more advanced games to Mac with greater Windows compatibility. Following Ubisoft's brief presentation of Assassin's Creed Shadows, Apple confirmed that the following games are also coming to Mac and other Apple devices.

  • Control Ultimate Edition
  • Dead Island 2
  • Frostpunk 2
  • Palworld
  • Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown
  • Resident Evil Biohazard
  • Resident Evil 2
  • Riven
  • Robocop: Rogue City
  • Sniper Elite 4
  • Valheim
  • World of Warcraft: The War Within
  • Wuthering Waves

That's a small list of impressive titles for now. But if Game Porting Toolkit 2 allows more developers to easily bring their games to Mac, then that list has the potential to get a lot larger in the near future.
