XIV on Mac is a better way to play Final Fantasy XIV on macOS.

XIV on Mac provides a way for Mac gamers to run Final Fantasy XIV on macOS without needing to pay for a CrossOver license, wrestle with setting up their own Wine environment, or dealing with Square Enix's "official" wrapper, which is out of date and poorly supported.

XIV on Mac:

  • includes a native launcher written in Swift
  • provides out of the box support for popular mods, such as Dalamud, GShade, Anamnesis, and IINACT
  • performs significantly better than the official wrapper
  • supports the latest technologies from Apple such as macOS Ventura, Apple Silicon, and Metal 2
  • has day-one support for major macOS releases
  • even includes a custom Wine distribution with further optimisations to DXVK/MoltenVK

XIV on Mac is free and open source software, with active development, regular updates, and community support.
