Since its release in September 2020, the open-world action RPG Genshin Impact has continued to take the world by storm.

PlayStation, PC, Mobile, and iOS can run the open-world RPG game, and players are still expecting a Switch port to be released at some point.

With iOS devices being able to run the game, some people are naturally wondering if the game will run on macOS products as well.

Can you play Genshin Impact on Mac OS?

Officially speaking, Genshin Impact has not yet been released for macOS products, and miHoYo has yet to announce any development for making it available for Mac users.

Of course, that didn’t stop the tech-savvier users from finding roundabout ways of bringing the famous gacha game to the platform.

How to play Genshin Impact on Mac OS?

There have been various ways found in getting the game to run properly.

One such method suggested using a Windows partition; another one used a program that can emulate the Android operating system, and one took it one step further and emulated the Windows OS.

While it is a free-to-play game that can be played so long as the minimum specifications are met (which MacOS products most certainly can, given their repertoire in products), it might be better to wait until any official news about Genshin coming to the platform.

It's a shame it wasn't available on launch, so let's cross our fingers that after the Nintendo Switch gets its port, Mac users can join in on the travels across Teyvat too.
