When is Valheim Coming To Mac? Devs Respond
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for Valheim on Mac...
In the highly competitive world of indie survival/crafting games, Valheim is currently the top dog. Boasting this week that it’s sold over 5 million copies, it’s hard to argue the game’s success. Those sorts of numbers create quite the FOMO for those not currently able to play it due to a lack of gaming PC. It’s made many people wonder about console ports and a Valheim Mac OS edition.
Here’s the short answer: there doesn’t seem to be a Mac OS version of the game coming anytime soon. In a recently published FAQ, the developers have confirmed that there are no current plans to create a Mac version of the game unless “there is any significant demand for it.”
Obviously, anyone looking to play games on a PC isn’t looking at Apple products when deciding on a model. However, because of Valheim‘s success, relatively small download size, and low hardware requirements, it’s easy to see why Mac owners might be interested.
While still only being roughly one month old, the demand for the game to hit consoles is there as well. In the same detailed FAQ post, developers made their plans clear when they said “there are no plans to release on other platforms as of the time of writing but we won’t rule out console versions in the future.”
For now, it seems like non-PC gamers who are looking to play Valheim can only do two things: make their voices heard and wait.
