Rumbleverse is a free battle royale game developed by Iron Galaxy. In many ways, it is similar to other such games. It starts slow, with players spread over the whole map – named Grapital City – searching for items that would give them an advantage. In this game, players can find magazines that unlock special skills, as well as weapons and stat upgrade potions. But the shrinking map will quickly force the conflict to occur.
Rumbleverse attempts to stand out from plethora of games that follow the same formula by making one single decision that significantly alters the gameplay. No ranged weapons. Although the players have access to a variety of melee attacks and weapons, you will not find a single gun in the game. No bows either; it’s all close and personal.
Similarly to Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt, all buildings in Rumbleverse can be climbed. Evasion is necessary to stay alive in this battle royale game, and utilizing these buildings will be a key to that. Each coin has two sides, however; the parkour abilities also enable the attackers to unexpectedly show up.
This game is available on MS Windows, as well as PS 4 & 5 and Xbox One & Series X/S. But you can play Rumbleverse on Mac too; to learn how, read the guide below.

Play Rumbleverse on Mac with Parallels
Rumbleverse 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 Rumbleverse game on Mac just like on a regular PC.
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 Rumbleverse on Mac with Cloud Gaming services
If you have an old Mac or it cannot satisfy the Rumbleverse game system requirements, there is an easy solution. Cloud gaming services will be happy to provide you with sufficient computing power – though not for free, of course. All you need is a browser or a small client program and a good internet connection starting from 15 MBit/s. There are several great platforms that provide these services, among the best are Boosteroid, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google Stadia, and Nvidia GeForce Now.
Boosteroid has Rumbleverse in its game library, so if you want to check this particular game out, it’s a great way to do so quickly.
Play Rumbleverse 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 Rumbleverse on Mac
This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets all the system requirements above, you can play Rumbleverse 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.
- Download this Windows ISO file.
- Open Boot Camp Assistant (Go to Applications > Utilities).
- Define the Windows partition size and choose the Windows ISO file you’ve downloaded.
- Format the 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)
