* We have confirmed operation on Mac OS X 10.10.2 and beyond, but there have been reports of OS issues on 10.10.4/10.10.5 which causes the program to not boot when it is first launched. Due to this, we recommend running the program on 10.11 (El Capitan).
** Running at a resolution above 1920 x 1080/1920 x 1200 will result in negative framerate performance.

Notes
  • On systems with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M, GeForce GT 755M or GeForce GT 750M graphics chips, a display issue may have occurred when continuously changing the screen resolution settings, which was due to an issue with NVIDIA graphics drivers. This issue has been fixed in the newest NVIDIA graphics driver provided with Mac OS X 10.11.3 for systems with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M and GeForce GT 750M graphic chips. Please note that if you happen to encounter this issue, simply restart the game to resolve the problem.
  • Specs are subject to change in the future.
  • While we have confirmed operation of the game is possible on the MacBook Pro, due to extraordinary heat generated during gameplay, we have taken the precautionary measure of not adding the machine to the list of applicable models.
