League of Legends summons a Mac client

Mac users can finally run one of the most popular free-to-play games available, the multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) League of Legends.

Steve Mieczkowski, associate producer at developer Riot Games, announced that the Mac client is available now in a public beta environment. Mieczkowski provided a link for the download on the same forum post where he made the announcement.

“To make this happen, we’ve been hard at work,”  Mieczkowski wrote in his post. “Riot engineers rewrote a lot of the underlying game engine so that both PC and Mac platforms share the same code base and assets. This means Mac players will receive all future features, bug fixes, and new content at the same time as PC users.”

More than 10 million people play League of Legends every day. This Mac client can’t hurt that number.
