Is it possible to play FIFA 21 on Mac
As known, EA (Electronic Arts) has kept the tradition of developing soccer simulators since 1993 proving it with the 21st edition of FIFA this year. In outline, FIFA 21 cannot be called something revolutionary compared to previous versions. Of course, EA created the new Creative Runs system allowing users to move around the field without the ball alongside dribbling which has become easier and more variable. Artificial intelligence helps bots better adapt to certain scenarios to put up a bigger competition against real players. In other aspects, it is a great simulator that helps you forget about domestic routines and share the joy with friends on a couch. Additionally, the updated version contains new packs of players to collect and assemble the dream team on a grassy field. As always, some users remain disappointed not seeing the game for Mac. But we will help you maneuver out of dismay and score some goals on Mac via instructions provided below.

Play FIFA 21 on Mac with BootCamp
This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets the system requirements above, this is probably the best way to play FIFA 21 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)
