Since its launch in 2017, Fortnite has grown steadily and has become one of the most popular, if not the most popular, shooting and survival games on the market.

If you want to play Fortnite on a PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or even an iOS/Android device, there is a version ready to download for each of these operating systems.

In this tutorial, we explain step by step how to install Fortnite on a Mac, and give you two tips to play quietly on MacOS.

How do I install Fortnite on a Mac?

Fortunately, Epic Games’ Fortnite games (Fortnite: Save the World and Fortnite Battle Royale) are officially supported on the Mac, so it’s pretty easy to install them.

However, Fortnite is not available in the Apple App Store, unlike its iOS version, which makes the process a little more complex. In fact, you will have to go to the Epic Games website to proceed with the installation.

However, before explaining how to install Fortnite on a Mac, the following minimum system requirements are necessary:

  • Environment : macOS Sierra
  • Processor: Intel Core i3 2.4GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Graphics card: Intel 4000 HD Graphics

When you’re ready to install Fornite on your Mac, follow these 4 steps:

  1. Open your browser and go to the Epic Games website. Click on the download option at the top right.
  2. Login or create a new Epic Games account. The account will be the same as the one used on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS or Android (if you have already played Fortnite from another platform). Then click on Mac.
  3. Install the epic game launcher program, then run it.
  4. Follow the instructions on the screen. You will be automatically directed to a Fortnite window, from which you only have to click on Launch.

Once the game is installed, all you have to do is play it.

Improve Fortnite’s refresh rate and your Mac’s performance

Let’s face it, Fortnite on the Mac does not have as good graphics as on Windows, consoles and even mobile devices. This is mainly due to the fact that most Macs have a chip built into the motherboard, and the motherboard is less powerful than a graphics card.

Only high-end Macs, or recently released Macs, are equipped with independent GPUs and are able to offer a very good Fortnite experience.

It should also be noted that Epic Games does not really focus on the MacOS environment. Some players have encountered some bugs, problems related to textures (images pasted on a surface), frame rates, etc.

If you are one of them, then try to uninstall and reinstall Fortnite on your Mac.

Here are our two tips to improve the representation of Fortnite graphics and avoid any kind of slowdown.

Changing the graphics settings

We recommend that you set all graphics settings to Low. To do so, click on the icon of the three horizontal lines in the upper right corner and then click on the cogwheel to access the Settings.

On the Graphics tab, select Low for Textures, Effects and Post-Processing, and set the Maximum Frame Rate to Unlimited.

In this way, your frame rate will be optimized, while sacrificing only a little in visual quality. Fortnite is one of the few games that remains decent even with reduced graphics.

Stop the execution of other programs

To ensure that you play without any slowdowns, we advise you to close all unused background applications.

This allows your Mac to devote more power to running Fortnite, instead of loading it with programs like Google Chrome.
