Is it possible to play Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege on Mac?
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege is a 2015 multiplayer video game by Ubisoft that opens a fresh look of modern tactical shooting. Its gameplay basis lies in intense asymmetric battles between assault squads and defenders within confined spacing. Players will have a chance to undergo sweaty fights in various locations while interacting with multi-level objects (buildings, airplanes, etc.) swarmed by tons of enemies. All the surrounding objects are made as realistically as possible and can be damaged depending on the bullet caliber or power of explosive devices used by players. This destruction can be used to benefit in a battle as they are able to form new firing positions, shelters, or even a hole in a floor. The game also counts the number of weapons that can be found and upgraded during the clashes. Because it is posed as a competitive game, players are separated into different groups of skills by gaining points and topping their ranks in the game. This is similar to other shooters like CS:GO or WarZone. Although Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege was out in 2015, the Anvil engine still holds a very high capacity to produce a satisfying and high-graphics experience. The game is constantly updated, bringing new content and graphical improvements to make it even more entertaining to play. We know this game is officially incompatible with Mac, however, there are some methods to break this rule and launch it on macOS regardless. Follow the article below to learn how.

Play Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege 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 Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege on Mac
This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets all system requirements above, this is probably the best way to play Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege 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)
