The Witcher 1 & 2 can now be played on Apple Silicon-powered Macs

CD Projekt Red has made some surprising Witcher-related announcements recently. Not only is The Witcher 3 soon getting support for a full mod editor, enabling creators to make their own quests and original content in the game, but the studio is also going back and updating The Witcher 1 & 2 for Mac players to support the latest Apple Silicon processors. Now, the newly updated Mac versions of those classic RPGs are officially available. 

In an announcement last month, CD Projekt Red revealed that it is updating both The Witcher: Enhanced Edition and The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings to support macOS Ventura, as well as Apple Silicon processors like the M1 and M2.

Now, the new Mac update for these games is rolling out across all platforms, including the App Store, GOG and Steam. With the update, The Witcher 1 and The Witcher 2 will run on the latest version of macOS and will take advantage of the new M series processors.

This updated macOS support does come at a price though. After the update, the minimum requirements for both games will change, requiring macOS 11.0 or newer, ditching support for older OS X 10 versions. If you happen to be using an older Mac without an Apple Silicon processor, you will want to disable automatic updates as rolling back to a previous version can be a tricky task after the update has been installed.

KitGuru Says: Apple has been making a push for more game support on its systems, so it is nice to see updates like this coming through. Unfortunately, The Witcher 3 does not have a native Mac version, although it is playable using third-party programs like Crossover.
