Is it possible to play Among Us on Mac
Known by everyone nowadays, Among Us is a multiplayer game developed by InnerSloth, a young American company with lots of fresh projects yet to come out. Although it was released in 2018, the real hype has been obtained in recent days getting a lot of purchases and downloads around the globe. You may see this game played live by reputable streamers and YouTubers holding first place in trends of gaming. The point is to find and eliminate an imposter around civil players, whose mission is to complete all of the tasks scattered across the space shuttle before a bloody finger gets around your throat. You never know who is going to be a killer, so watch close to not get stabbed in the back. The game also requires sneaky thinking to outsmart civils and drop suspicion over to innocent people. Among Us is an incredible teamwork and betrayal game for 4-10 players that is available on IOS, Android, and Windows.

Play Among Us on Mac with BootCamp
This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets system requirements above, this is probably the best way to play Among Us for now. You need to set up a dual boot of Windows and Mac via BootCamp. BootCamp allows users to choose the system to work in on startup, however, you won’t be able to switch between systems like in Parallels. You will need to reboot your machine every time you switch from Mac to Windows and vice versa. Remember that Mac is just a computer, that uses common processors, RAM, disks, and other components. So you can install Windows on Mac by allocating disc space of a minimum of 64 Gb (to be able to run Windows and a couple of games). To set up Windows via BootCamp, please, do the following:
For OS X El Capitan 10.11 or later
Mention, that for MacOS versions prior to OS X El Capitan 10.11 you will need to create bootable Windows USB.
- Download Windows ISO file
- Open Boot Camp Assistant (Go to Applications > Utilities)
- Define the Windows partition size choose downloaded Windows ISO file
- Format Windows partition and go through all Windows installation steps
- When Windows boots for the first time follow on-screen instructions to install Boot Camp and Windows support software (drivers)
