Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is the fashion game, a true success that has revolutionized the world in recent weeks. In this game we will have to compete against up to 60 players to reach the goal first while we cross fun platforms, jump, grab and whatever else you can think of to be the first. A very fun game but that has a downside if you are an Apple lover: it is not available for macOS .The most popular game of the moment is only available for Windows and for PS4 , so Apple users have it complicated, since it is not available for iOS or macOS. However, there is a way to play Fall Guys from our Mac: installing Windows . Fortunately our MacBook or iMac is compatible with Windows, either through Boot Camp or virtualizing the Microsoft system, so there is the option to play Fall Guys. I have tried it myself on my iMac and that I could play without problems, I am going to tell you how I did it and the different ways to play.
Play Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout from your Mac
As we have mentioned, it is perfectly possible to play Fall Guys from a Mac , all we need is to install Windows on our device, in any of the possible ways. Of course, it is a process that will take a while, although later you can also use Windows on your Mac without problems.
What do you need
As it is necessary to install Windows, you will need a copy of the system and an activation key, and you also need a copy of the game, which is available on Steam. Finally, you must choose how you want to install Windows, “natively” with Boot Camp or virtualizing it with a specific app. Each way has its advantages and disadvantages, Boot Camp makes better use of your Mac’s resources, but you must choose whether you want to use Windows or macOS when booting. With a virtual machine you can use macOS and Windows at the same time, although you need a device with enough power to do it correctly.
- A copy of Windows , there are different offers available for very little .
- A copy of the game , available on Steam .
- A virtual machine , in case you don’t opt for Boot Camp , Parallels is the most recommended on Mac.
How to install Windows
There are two options available with their advantages and disadvantages. I play Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout without problems virtualizing Windows from Parallels on my iMac 2019 with a six-core Intel Core i5 processor, but depending on the power of each computer, one option or the other will be more recommended to play fluently.
Install Windows with Boot Camp
Once you have downloaded your copy of Windows, all you have to do is enter the Boot Camp Assistant on your Mac. It is inside the Other Applications folder, although you can also search for it and start it by clicking on the magnifying glass on the top bar. Once the installation process has started, it is very simple, just follow the steps that you mark, choose the size of the hard disk partition and wait for Windows to install. To switch between systems simply restart your Mac and hold down the Option (or Alt) key ⌥ , and choose Windows or macOS.
Install Windows with virtual machine
There are various virtual machines on macOS, VirtualBox and Parallels are the most famous. I personally prefer the latter and it is the one I use. The good thing is that it has a trial period of 15 days , so you can test Windows without problems and check if it works correctly on your computer, if it doesn’t, you could opt for Boot Camp. The process is just as simple and the app will guide you at all times selecting the different available configurations and installing Windows.
How to install Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
Now that we have Windows installed on our Mac, we can play Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. What we must do is start Windows, from the virtual machine or restarting the system, and go to the Steam website to download its app for Windows and create an account if we do not have one. Once the app is downloaded, we start it and look for Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and download the game , which will be installed on our Mac with Windows.
We may have to adjust the graphics for the game to behave correctly, this will depend on the specifications of your Mac, the type of processor, graphics and disk you have will affect the performance of the game.
As you can see, it is possible to play Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout on a Mac , although we will have to perform a few extra steps. A version for macOS does not appear to be released, so this is the only way there is to play this popular game. You will also have Windows installed that you can use for other tasks.
