The 25 best Mac games you can get right now

Divinity: Original Sin 2 (£30)

You know you've got a hell of a game when it's called an all-time great upon release, and that's exactly what happened with Larian Studios' Divinity: Original Sin 2 a couple years back.

Lavished with glowing reviews and year-end awards, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is arguably the greatest modern example of the classic, turn-based computer role-playing game, with a captivating storyline and characters, in-depth role-playing elements, gorgeous environments, and compelling combat. It's a huge game that you can spend ages enjoying – and with Larian next taking the reins of Baldur's Gate 3, you can see what all of the hype around the studio is about.

Rocket League (£15)

If you've never played Rocket League, it's basically futuristic, gravity-defying football - played in cars. Souped-up, shiny cars roaring around neon-lit arenas. It's bright, brash and thoroughly playable.

Expect multiplayer mayhem, richly rendered cartoon graphics and instantly addictive gameplay. There's a full single-player mode, but it's in the online 8-player games where Rocket League comes into its own.

With a host of items and vehicles to unlock, getting the giant, glowing ball into the giant, glowing goal is never as easy as it seems, with power-ups and physics both working against you and your team.

What's more, with near-infinite car customisations to try, Rocket League's unlikely to leave you bored.

Dirt 4 (£45)

Codemasters' long-running rally racing franchise is at its best in Dirt 4, which delivers the series' largest and most polished edition to date.

This is a stunning racer – realistic in all the right ways, yet not so punishing that newcomers will shy away at the first muddy spinout. Dirt 4 has more than 50 licensed cars included and five real-world locations with millions of potential routes, along with a course generator that can get you a new locale to speed through with the press of a button.

Cuphead (£15)

We're so thrilled to see Cuphead make the move over to Mac, as this absolutely gorgeous indie is one of the most distinctive games released in the past several years.

Looking like a classic 1930s cartoon come to life, Cuphead might seem all sweet and charming, but this side-scrolling run-and-gun game is actually tough as nails. It's essentially a boss rush challenge, tasking you with taking down increasingly elaborate and obnoxious foes. Team up with a pal (as Mugman!) for an even better experience.

Hitman (first episode free + IAP)

IO Interactive's stealth assassin series lost a bit of steam over time, but with a new episodic format, the revived Hitman feels totally fresh and is an essential play for action fans.

This is no run-and-gun game, however: Hitman is all about the slow, nuanced process of setting up for and then executing a perfect, calculated, unseen kill. Each episode of the now-complete first season offers up an entirely new sandbox environment full of missions, bonus objectives, and unique opportunities to plot your attack, and the entire package is a devious delight.
