How to play Illarion on Mac


Game summary

Illarion is an on­line game where genu­ine role playing is en­forced. The main design prin­ciple is a fo­cus on the in­ter­ac­tion with other play­ers. All the player char­ac­ters you will en­counter dur­ing your time here are liv­ing, breath­ing in­hab­it­ants of the mys­ter­i­ous world of Illarion.

Ex­per­i­ence glor­i­ous ad­ven­tures as noble knight or live the life of a hard­work­ing crafts­man, ac­quis­it­ive mer­chant or cha­ris­matic priest of the gods.

Play Illarion on Mac with Parallels (virtualized)

The easiest way to play Illarion on a Mac is through Parallels, which allows you to virtualize a Windows machine on Macs. The setup is very easy and it works for Apple Silicon Macs as well as for older Intel-based Macs.

Parallels supports the latest version of DirectX and OpenGL, allowing you to play the latest PC games on any Mac. The latest version of DirectX is up to 20% faster.

Our favorite feature of Parallels Desktop is that when you turn off your virtual machine, all the unused disk space gets returned to your main OS, thus minimizing resource waste (which used to be a problem with virtualization).

Illarion installation steps for Mac

Step 1
Go to and download the latest version of the software.
Step 2
Follow the installation process and make sure you allow Parallels in your Mac’s security preferences (it will prompt you to do so).
Step 3
When prompted, download and install Windows 10. The download is around 5.7GB. Make sure you give it all the permissions that it asks for.
Step 4
Once Windows is done installing, you are ready to go. All that’s left to do is install Illarion like you would on any PC.
