Metro: Last Light comes to Mac via Steam Play

Wednesday, 11th September 2013 02:24 GMT By Ewan Miller

4A Games has announced that their atmospheric shooter, Metro: Last Light has made its way to the Macintosh and that version is now up on Steam Play. This means that if you own the PC version, you’ve got the Mac release for free. However, being one of the most graphically intense games of the last few years, better check if you Mac can run it after the jump. A Linux version is supposedly coming soon.

I can’t say I’ve followed Apple’s hardware revisions too closely in the last few years, but it looks like the current revisions of the Macbook Pro and iMac should both just about meet the reccomended specifications, although I don’t think the Macbook Air quite makes the minimum specs. Check them out for yourself.

OS: 10.8.4 (Mountain Lion)
Processor: 2.7 Ghz Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB RAM

Processor: 3.2 GHz quad core Intel Core i5
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: NVidia Geforce GTX 680MX with 1GB
Hard Drive: 10 GB available space

    My top of the line iMac exceeds the recommended specs by a tad….. I have what the specs call for except for having 2GB of VRAM and 3.4Ghz Core i7 instead of an 3.2GHz i5 and I can turn the quality slider all the way up and still have it be super fluid and no micropauses or stutters.

    I have HDMI audio setup and the ability to turn on up to 8 channels and some games such as the ones from Feral Interactive such as the Batman Arkham Games support 3D surround sound but Metro LL does not. Which was kind of a bummer… but other than that it runs great.
