Associate Producer Steve Mieczkowski is looking for player feedback on League of Legends‘ Mac client.
Since its 2009 release, free-to-play PC MOBA League of Legends has enjoyed immense popularity, with developer Riot Games calling it “the most played video game in the world” last October. However, it’s been limited to Windows computers since launch, leaving Mac users out of the fun. That will change in the near future; Associate Producer Steve Mieczkowski has announced that the “long-awaited” Mac client will be ready soon. And by “soon,” he means it’s in beta right now.
The League of Legends Mac client is currently available on the Public Beta Environment, after which it will enter open beta. “Riot engineers re-wrote a lot of the underlying game engine so that both PC and Mac platforms share the same code base and assets,” Mieczkowski wrote on the League of Legends community forum. “This means Mac players will receive all future features, bug fixes, and new content at the same time as PC users.”
Though the Mac client has entered the Public Beta Environment, it won’t go into open beta until the results from the PBE are acceptable, so there’s no timeline for when the full open beta will begin. In the meantime, Mieczkowski encourages PBE players to download the client and start providing feedback.
