Highly anticipated role-playing title Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition got its official release on Mac today, exactly three months since Apple teased the game at its October 2018 Keynote event.

Developed in partnership with Mac porting studio Elverils and Apple's Metal engineering team, the acclaimed RPG from Larian Studios includes all the content from the PC version, along with a raft of additional features exclusive to Mac.

Examples of the latter include full MacBook Pro Touch Bar support for quick access to in-game actions (such as the journal or map), MacBook trackpad and selected gestures support, eGPU support, support for Apple MFi controllers and rumbling support on selected controllers, and iCloud support for easy backup between devices.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition supports cross-play between Windows and Mac systems. It's also the first title on macOS to support HDR (on selected hardware, macOS Mojave 10.14+ only).


Since its 2017 PC release, DOS2 is one of only 15 games to receive a GameSpot 10/10 score. The in-depth sandbox adventure for up to four friends has also won a BAFTA in the Multiplayer category and is the highest rated PC game of 2017 on Metacritic.

System requirements include an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, HD Graphics 5000 or Radeon R9 M290X, 19.3GB of disk space, and macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra or later.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition is available on the Mac App Store for $44.99 and on Steam for $29.24 including the 35 percent discount that runs until February 11. For more information, be sure to check out the official Divinity: Original Sin 2 website.

It doesn't have any microtransactions. Bizarre comment.

Anyway, I just bought Pillars of Eternity 2 yesterday because they added a proper turn-based mode. And now this. You go forever without a decent RPG and suddenly there are two. ;)

I don't know about compared to Windows, but with a Vega 56, I have all settings maxed out and it's always 60fps so far.

You can also get it on gog.com, if you dislike stunts like the one steam pulled off recently leaving users of older versions of macos unable to play at all the games they paid for, or you don’t want to wait forever for apple to accept a patch for the game on the mac app store.

Go to the Apple menu, then "About this Mac." If the "Graphics" section mentions Iris, Iris Pro, or has a four-digit number of 5000 or larger, the game should run. As far as I can tell, all MBPs from '16 should be good to go, though you may have to minimize graphical settings to get an enjoyable frame rate.
That isn't quite true. HD 5200 graphics which the original (2015) 12" MacBook has is significantly weaker than HD 5000, more in line with the HD 4000. However, the game might run anyway.

Will be interesting to see how well the game performs in MacOS compared to Windows on the same hardware. This being developed with help from Apple's Metal team maybe means it's not to far from how it runs in Windows. Because I can't imagine it to be better. Or can I? :)

To be fair, Divinity: Original Sin (the first one) is also a pretty excellent RPG and that released in... 2014? 2015? Something like that.

Haven't played it myself, but from what I understand you're not going to be upset about buying Pillars of Eternity 2 either. :D
