Explore the vast universe of No Man’s Sky on Mac with Cross-Platform play and enhanced features

Hello Games, the British video game company, announced today that No Man’s Sky, the popular action-adventure survival game, is now available for Mac users. Mac gamers can embark on their interstellar journey as the game launches on Steam today, with availability on the Mac App Store coming soon. Additionally, if you already own the PC version on Steam, you can access the Mac version for free.

This long-awaited release follows Hello Games’ announcement at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) last year, where they revealed plans to bring No Man’s Sky to Macs. Just a few days ahead of this year’s WWDC event, the game is finally rolling out to Mac users. No Man’s Sky is compatible with Macs featuring Apple silicon or Intel-based Macs with a minimum of a Core i5 processor.


With seven years of updates and native support for Apple silicon and i5 Intel Macs, No Man’s Sky for Mac offers an immersive gaming experience. The game supports cross-play functionality, allowing players to interact with friends on different platforms. Additionally, PC-to-Mac cross-save is supported, allowing players to seamlessly switch between devices. Mac users can enjoy fast loading times utilizing the Mac internal SSD and benefit from MetalFX upscaling to enhance console-like graphics.

No Man’s Sky initially launched in 2016 and has since captivated gamers across various platforms, including Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The game also offers a virtual reality (VR) experience through the PSVR 2. With Apple expected to announce its mixed reality headset at WWDC, it is highly likely that No Man’s Sky will eventually be compatible with Apple’s upcoming device, further expanding the game’s accessibility.

Mac users can now join the ever-growing community of explorers in No Man’s Sky, venturing into a procedurally generated universe teeming with endless possibilities. As they traverse alien worlds, discover new species, and engage in thrilling space battles, Mac gamers can now experience the vastness of the game’s universe firsthand.

Whether you’re a long-time fan of No Man’s Sky or a newcomer eager to embark on this cosmic adventure, the release of the game on Mac opens up new horizons for gaming enthusiasts. Strap in, and get ready to explore the boundless reaches of No Man’s Sky on your Mac.
