Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall 2 is a first-person shooter video game offering to experience a fascinating single-player story. Taking place in the science fiction universe, you will be able to control all six new Titans, mecha-style exoskeletons, and their pilots, endowed with an extensive list of skills panning from cloaking to wall-running abilities. The campaign features the fate of Jack Cooper, a rifleman from the Frontier Militia, who has cooperated with Titan BT-7274 after his mentor perished away. Following that, the courageous heroes are on the mission to vanquish evil, the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) preparing to launch a deadly technology that could decimate the entire planet. Titanfall 2 also includes multiplayer, so you will have a possibility to face and overcome challenges together with friends. Also, there is nothing embarrassing about graphics as well. Although the game was developed on the basis of Valve’s Source engine in 2016, it still does not fall behind some of the modern projects. At the moment, Titanfall 2 is available only for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This is why we decided to create this article and help people play it on Mac systems.

Play Titanfall 2 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 Titanfall 2 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)
