Is it possible to play Valorant on MacOS?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there are no current plans for Valorant to support Mac OSX. For now, to play Valorant you’ll just have to bite the bullet and free up space for bootcamp or build a Windows PC.

I do feel for you here though. I worked on porting LoL to Mac native all those years ago and have seen firsthand the development time it takes to port to / maintain Mac. As much as we’d like to reach every platform and player we have to look at where our development time is most effective for the entire player base.

Are you wondering what is Bootcamp? It is basically a multi-boot utility tool that lets you install Windows OS on your Mac.

After installing Windows on your Mac, you can install Valorant and play the game. However, you may not get good performance. Keep that in mind.
