Mac Client Now Available on PBE Server

6 comments
Without running bootcamp or a virtual desktop it used to be nearly impossible to play League of Legends on your Mac. Good news though, Riot's finally finished developing a new Mac Client for League of Legends, and it's now available on the PBE. Considering how much money they're making, I'm glad they FINALLY got around to doing it!

Here's the official post:
Greetings Summoners,

I’m pleased to report that the long-awaited (fabled? mythical?) League of Legends Mac client is almost ready, and it’s heading into open beta soon™.

And by soon™, I mean that it’s available right now on the Public Beta Environment. Open beta, which will allow anyone to access the live servers on Macs, will follow after we’re confident in the results from the PBE test.

To make this happen, we’ve been hard at work: Riot engineers re-wrote a lot of the underlying game engine so that both PC and Mac platforms share the same code base and assets. This means Mac players will receive all future features, bug fixes, and new content at the same time as PC users.

While we aren't quite ready for a full open beta launch, we wanted to share the Mac client with PBE players to help us find bugs and give feedback.

Download the Mac PBE client here, patch up, and log in to help us make the Mac League of Legends experience as awesome as possible!

Thanks to the Mac community for your extraordinary patience – and a very special thanks to a particularly astounding group of folks who helped many of you play League via an unofficial client over the past months.

Best,

Steve "Udyr" Mieczkowski

P.S. Huge thanks to the Cross Platform team for their hard work!

    Hi Daniel, I haven't heard anything specific yet, but maybe another person can comment on the matter?

    Thanks for getting back to me. Mac is based on Linux at low level, so Im hoping this at least makes it easier for an unofficial port. I will publicly declare my love for Riot if they release an official one :D

    No problem Daniel, I try to respond to as many comments as possible. While I may not always get to every single one, I read all of them! Hope a Linux platform comes out soon for you!
