'Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition' Launching November 5 on Mac

Nearly one year after Feral Interactive announced that "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" would be coming to macOS sometime in 2019, the company today provided a launch date for the game: November 5. On this date, the game will also launch on Linux.


Feral's port of the game for macOS is the Definitive Edition, including all seven DLC challenge tombs, along with all downloadable weapons, outfits, and skills. Otherwise, the base game will be the same seen within the original release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which first launched on consoles in September 2018.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the third game in the rebooted series, following Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider, telling the story of Lara Croft's quest to prevent the Mayan apocalypse. The game primarily takes place in Central and South America, including areas like Cozumel and the Amazon, all on Lara's quest to discover the hidden city of Paititi.


Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be priced at $59.99 on Feral's store when it launches on November 5.

Cool, but Macs are practically allergic to GPUs.

ironically no GPU on any currently available mac can run it with 5k resolution at 60 fps with high settings


To be honest I doubt any single GPU can, check out these benchmarks at 4K resolution:

Lol, well....
One of the two of us is WAY out of the loop!

Is there a big push for 5k gaming??
I thought 1080p/144hz was the gaming setting of choice.

Bonus tip - if you do this, you might as well run windows 10 with boot camp to let yourself dual boot and open yourself up to a larger library of compatible games.


Many of us have been dual booting to play the "Windows Only" games for years-with great results (at least mine have been IMO). RX580 runs just fine at 1440p with Medium settings and 50 FPS. High to Ultra settings are over-rated, IMHO-but I don't care about bragging rights of having the newest gear/GPU. ?‍♂️

This game looks amazing with ray tracing. It is the best game to show off the latest generation of GPU's and HDR monitors. If you haven't played this yet pick it up. It's almost always $15 for the base game or $22 for the game and all the DLC. If you sign up for emails a lot of places have coupons that make it even cheaper.

Enjoy the 10fps experience, unless you play at something like 1280x720. :p


it‘s not bragging to play a game how it was designed to play it and not be happy with a crippled down quality. there was a time when mac users were quality people and not satisficers hehe

I played Rise of the Tomb Raider a couple of months ago in macOS Mojave on my iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019) with the internal Radeon Pro Vega 48, at 2560x1440, with Very High settings, at a consistent 60 fps.

(Edited to correct “Ultra settings” to “Very High settings”; Rise of the Tomb Raider does not have an “Ultra” preset.)

What he said. ↑↑↑ It's a great game. Although to be fair, the TR franchise is one of my favorite. Shadow is my second favorite of the series reboot. I even designed a livery in Forza 7 based on Shadow. My TankPool 24


I always say it, but it's true. Feral and Aspyre... they doin' God's work.

All things being equal, default (A.K.A.-Medium) is how a game was designed to be played. High to Ultra are for those with excess processing power and the desire to have bragging rights (i.e. braggadocios individuals). My Mac Pro can play Ultra on 95% modern game in Windows, I choose to not play it at those levels to avoid the heat, fan noise, and excess power consumption.

You can call that a compromise if you like, I call it common sense considering I'm still playing the same game at UHD whether @ 1440p or 4K. If you have the money-play how you like, and I'll play how I like.
