Developed by Experiment 1001, Biomutant is an action/RPG with an open world full of adventures. The game sets its plot in a post-apocalyptic world, which was struck by a natural disaster putting the Tree of Life under extinction. Players are given a chance to control the main character, a raccoon-like creature able to change its skills and look using mutation, biomechanical prostheses, and weapons. The world requires all of your effort and knowledge to fix the disaster and heal each root of the tree. The road to go through is full of challenging pieces as you will be forced to fight with other creatures and bosses slowing your path. During development, Biomutant creators had been inspired by Kung-fu, which now enables the players to master various fighting techniques along with next-level mutations like telekinesis or levitation. Biomutant is known for constantly changing branches of plot based on players’ decisions. This makes people participate and affect future events by themselves. Biomutant is developed on Unreal Engine 4 and is currently available across Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Because there is no Mac officially present around this list, some third-party technologies managed to propose a solution regardless.

Play Biomutant on Mac with BootCamp
This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets all the system requirements above, this is probably the best way to play Biomutant 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)
