Divinity: Original Sin Early Mac Version Available
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Larian Studios recently announced that the Mac version of its upcoming fantasy RPG Divinity: Original Sin, is now available for Early Access on Steam thanks to a recent update to the game. The game will feature an isometric view, party-based gameplay, turn-based combat, choice & consequence, character development, party development, a large world to explore, and drop-in/drop-out multiplayer.

About the Mac Version

The Mac version features full Retina support, an improved “Laptop Optimized” mode, and support for a wide range of systems. Purchase of either the Mac or PC version of the game grants you access to both versions.

The minimum system required is Mac OS X 10.8/10.9 with 4GB of memory. The game will run on Intel HD 3000 & 4000 graphics cards, but those should be considered minimum requirements. For integrated chipsets like Intel Graphics, we highly recommend 8GB of memory.
