Here’s the List of Games that are Compatible with M1 Macs (Continuously Updating)

Apple has taken a big step by releasing its own Apple M1 chip. And these chips are included in the latest Macs. Also, upcoming Macs will also be powered with Apple Chips. Apple M1 is a powerful chip that includes a powerful 8-core GPU. It can run many available games in high graphics while maintaining good battery life. Here you will know the list of games that you can play on M1 Macs.

Update: Apple M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are now available. These chips are more powerful than the first-gen M1 Chip. Performance wise M1 chips are in order M1 < M1 Pro < M1 Max. M2 Chip is also available with minor upgrades over the M1 chip.

macOS is popular for its amazing and fluid performance but not for gaming. This is why gamers mostly go for Windows-based computers. But with the release of the new Apple M1 chip. The gaming experience is going to be better even without any dedicated GPU. Many users have tested some games and shared the list on different platforms.

Apple M1 chip comes in the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13″, and Mac Mini. The gaming experience can differ in these Macs as they pack different hardware other than the Apple M1 chip. But all three Macs will be able to run all the games that are given on the list.

Games that are Compatible with M1 Macs

If you like computer gaming and you have an M1 powered Mac then you can experience some amazing titles such as Borderlands 3, Call of Duty Black Ops 3, Diablo 3, Dota 2, Minecraft, and many more. The list is quite big and I hope you also find your favorite game so you can play it on your M1 powered Mac.

As the Apple M1 SoC is a new chip, many gamers with M1 Mac will have one question. And that one question is if they will be able to play Computer games on their new M1 Mac or not. It is a common question that everyone including myself. And so I looked over the web and found a list of some interesting games.

All thanks to the developer and designer Thomas Schranz for the complete list. He managed to combine all the supported games in a single Google sheet. And the same list we are going to share. You can also share it with your friends who have M1 Mac.

Note: The list contains many games and some games may not directly work on the Mac, but it works with some workarounds like Sideload or using Parallels for Windows, using Steam client, or even using Cloud gaming. Also, there can be some games that run on low fps.

The list doesn’t include all the games that are compatible with M1 Macs. But we will be updating it regularly when we get info about other games that run on M1 Macs. You can also contribute to the list by updating the Google sheet shared by Thomas or you can also share in the comment section.

As you know, CPU and GPU is not the only requirement to run Games on a PC. It means on some Mac you get good gaming performance and maybe bad performance on some Macs. But you can always tweak settings to enhance the gaming performance.

We will be sharing more guides related to Apple M1 Chip. As it is a new chip, it means users may also face issues with Mac Apps like Google Chrome. And so we are going to share a similar type of list for compatible Apps.

  1. I have the new macbook air m1 ship and have problems with The Sims super collection. It’s crashing every time I enter a house and go into play mode. I have read that others also have the same problem unfortunately, does anyone have any tips on how to solve it?

    • Same here — Sims 2 Super Collection is *NOT* compatible with the M1s! Yes, you can start the game and you can load neighborhoods, but the game crashes once you load a lot and start playing (which is basically the entire point of the game). Aspyr is apparently aware of the issue and is working on it, but I have no idea when they might issue an update. In the meantime the game isn’t workable and the list above should be updated.

    • Hey Ronald,

      As for now, the information about Call of Duty Warzone compatibility on Mac M1 is not available to us, we’ll add more information once available.

  2. The Witcher 3? Really? As far as I’m aware, it’s not even available for Macs with Intel chips, only Windows, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch. There was a version of Witcher 2 for Mac, but that has not been upgraded to work with macOS Catalina.
