    Feral today released the Mac version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the sixth installment in the hit series of action stealth games.

    Mixing a first-person perspective with a third-person cover system, Deus Ex combines elements of classic FPS shooters with a role-playing upgrade system and dialogue interaction.

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is available from the Feral Store and Steam for $59.99. The Desperate Measures in-game mission and the Covert Agent pack, which includes various weapons and items, are available for free.

    The Digital Deluxe Edition is available from the Feral Store and Steam for $89.99. The Deluxe Edition includes two new story-based DLCs, System Rift and A Criminal Past, as well as the Assault and Tactical packs, which include various weapons and items. On top of that, players get the Desperate Measures in-game mission and the Covert Agent pack, four Praxis kits, 5,000 credits, 1,000 weapon parts, five booster packs, and 20 Chipsets for Breach, a standalone online game mode.

    To get the games to run, users will need a Mac running OS X 10.13.1 and at least an Intel Core i5 3GHz processor, 8GB of RAM, a 2GB video card, and 67GB of disk space. Feral says the game is officially supported on the following Macs: All 15-inch MacBook Pros released since late 2016, all 21.5-inch Retina 4K iMacs released since 2017, all 27-inch Retina 5K iMacs released since late 2014, and all Mac Pros released since late 2013.

    The only caveat seems to be the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro released in mid 2015 with an AMD Radeon R9 M370X, which Feral says is "capable of running the game but does not consistently meet the standards required for official support".

    Feral, doin' God's work for Mac gamers. Good job Feral. I no longer game on Mac, but the efforts are appreciated for those who do.

    Unrelated: High rez gaming is great 'cept for the humongous bulk of the file sizes.
    This is average. I got ultimate edition of Forza 7. That mofo weighs approx. 100GB

    Excellent game.

    I have loved every Deus Ex version since 2000.

    Check out the one in the iOS App Store as well. :)

    So I run a 2012 iMac 27" with Nvidia GeForce GTX 680MX with 2 gigs of memory.
    I bought the game originally on steam booted into boot camp cuz I liked it so much.
    Pleasantly surprised that when I open steam on Mac OS it immeidiatly shows up as available and I can d/l it. We'll see wether or not it will actually play on the Mac OS. But based not their recommended numbers I meet there requirements. I have a Core i7 3.4 well beyond the 3.0 giz Core i5 they recommend and I have a 2 gig video card. So i'll let you know how well it plays if at all.

    But, it was perfectly playable booted into windows 7 on this same computer.

    It will run, they say it is not supported. It is different from not working

    So far does it run.. yes.. its really really slow though. I had to drop resolution to 800x600 and put everything on low to even be remotely playable. I haven't played in on the Windows 7 side in awhile so I can't recall what settings I had to use on windows side but it was smoother there. With any luck they might make some updates to make it play a little better on the Nvidia hardware.

    it really depends more on what year your computer was made and what generation of graphic card you have. My card has 2 gigs of memory but because it's such an old generation card, the performance is terrible.
    A newer card with a slower CPU would do better i'm certain.

    Running great so far on my eGPU! playing smooth with very high settings

    Your GPU is weak, you need dedicated GPU or eGPU. I’ve tested tonight an eGPU with RX 580 on a super old 2011 13” MacBook Pro and it boosted GFX by 400%

    Nice to see some confirmation of yours as iOS apps are featured heavily in comparison + we receive the weekly Touch Arcade updates aswell ;)

    Any thoughts on an eGPU? From looking into it its seems like there isn't 100% official support from Apple yet Sonnet? Akito Node? It seems as if with the enclosure and a card its a minimum of $400-$500 investment

    So at this point it seems to work better and smoother. I change the graphic settings to medium (800 x 600 resolution) then I disabled any sliders which went green. Rebooted my mac and not is pretty playable. Still not perfectly smooth or anything but it's smooth enough to play. Not sure why a reboot helped so much but it did. Before I rebooted, trying to deactivate a security camera wireless or anything like that was near impossible it was so choppy you could never time it right. Aiming was also really hard due to choppiness.

    But, at this point seems to be ok with those settings.
