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

by

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.

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. ?‍♂️
