How to play Enlisted on Mac

Is it possible to play Enlisted on Mac?

Enlisted is a multiplayer first-person shooter developed by Darkflow Software. In this World War II-based game, each player controls a squad of soldiers. One soldier is controlled by the player directly, while the others are controlled by the computer, but follow the player’s commands. It is also possible to play as a crew of a vehicle – either a tank or a fighter. This is not unusual – military games that are more realism-focused commonly use squad-based gameplay to give the engagements a more appropriate sense of scale. In another nod to realism, the players are always split into Allies and Axis teams, and can only select soldiers appropriate for their team. This way, you will not see Soviet and 3rd Reich soldiers fighting together, as that would be quite immersion-breaking. The Allied players can choose to play as the Soviet Red Army, British Army, or the US Army soldiers, while the Axis players can play either as Wehrmacht or Royal Italian Army soldiers. The game has two matchmaking modes, “Squads” and “Lone Fighters”. Squads is the default mode, that works as described above. The Lone Fighters mode is for those who prefer a more traditional FPS experience – in this mode, each player only controls one soldier and not a squad. Originally an Xbox Series X/S exclusive, the game has since been ported to PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One, and Windows. It did not receive a Mac port, but you can still play Enlisted on Mac by following the guide below.

Play Enlisted on Mac with Parallels

Enlisted requires lots of PC resources, but if you have a powerful Mac computer (iMac, iMac Pro, or Mac Pro) Parallels Desktop can be a solution. This is an application that allows for Windows virtualization on Mac with the full support of DirectX and GPUs. In simpler terms, what this means is that it allows you to install Windows 10 on Mac with just a couple of clicks and switch between MacOS and Windows instantly. So you will be able to run Windows, install Steam, and enjoy the Enlisted game on Mac just like on a regular PC.

Download Parallels Desktop

Note: Recommended devices to run resource-demanding games: MacBook Pro (models with an Intel processor, discrete graphics cards, and 16 GB of RAM or more), iMac (models with Intel processor, discrete graphics cards, and 16 GB of RAM or more), iMac Pro (all models are suitable), Mac Pro (all models are suitable). Parallels on Mac computers with M1 (M1 Pro, M1 Max) chips may not support recent games. Games that require DirectX 12 and later are currently not supported by Parallels. AppsOnMac recommends using Parallels’ free trial feature to determine whether you can run the game or not if you’re uncertain.

Play Enlisted on Mac with BootCamp

Note: Mac computers with new Apple Silicon (M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max) currently do not support BootCamp. In this case, please, use the options above to run Enlisted on Mac

This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets all the system requirements above, you can play Enlisted on Mac by installing Windows. You need to set up a dual boot of Windows and Mac via BootCamp. This is an application that 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 want to switch from Mac to Windows and vice versa. Remember that Mac is just a computer, in the end. And while newer Macs have their own special Apple Silicon chips that cannot run Windows, older Macs are very much similar to computers that run Windows, they have Intel processors, compatible RAM, disks, and other components. So you can install Windows on an older Mac by allocating no less than 64 GB of disk space (to be able to run Windows and a couple of games) and following these steps:

For OS X El Capitan 10.11 and older

For MacOS versions prior to OS X El Capitan 10.11 you will need to create a bootable Windows USB.

  1. Download this Windows ISO file.
  2. Open Boot Camp Assistant (Go to Applications > Utilities).
  3. Define the Windows partition size and choose the Windows ISO file you’ve downloaded.
  4. Format the Windows partition and go through all Windows installation steps.
  5. When Windows boots for the first time, follow on-screen instructions to install Boot Camp and Windows support software (drivers)
