Fortnite stands as one of the world’s most renowned games, accessible across a plethora of platforms. However, does this include compatibility with Mac devices? Here’s an overview of whether gamers can enjoy the Battle Royale experience on Mac.

Epic Games’ Fortnite is extremely beloved and it’s had a record-breaking time recently with Season OG bringing a lot of fans back to the game thanks to the return of the original map, and a handful of new titles including LEGO Fortnite being released.

The Battle Royale is readily available on a lot of platforms from PC to PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch but if you prefer to use an Apple device, you may be curious to know if you can enjoy the game on Mac.

With that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about whether or not you can run Fortnite on Mac.

Is Fortnite available to play on Mac?

Yes, Fortnite is available to play on Mac OS — but it requires a bit of a workaround for the best experience.

Fortnite can be installed on Mac through MacOS Sonoma by using the Game Porting Toolkit to download Fortnite through the Epic Games launcher.

Another option is through the Epic Games launcher on Mac OS, but users will be limited to version 13.40.

Apple and Epic Games have been in an ongoing legal battle over the last few years after Fortnite was removed from the App Store over how they were handling microtransactions in the game.

Since then, Epic removed support for Fortnite after the 13.40 update and hasn’t updated the game since.
