How to play surviv.io on Mac
2D BATTLE ROYALE packed into an intense 3-5 minute experience. No lobbies, no lengthy drop sequences. In surviv.io, you're always in the fight! Choose the mode that fits your mood. Go it alone in solo mode, battle with a partner in duos, or field a four-person team in squads. Loot, loot everywhere. Famous firearms, melee weapons, throwables, medical items, armor, scopes, and backpacks to hold it all. Raid an air drop to get the rarest loot!

Every rock, tree, building, bunker, and river spawns in a randomly chosen place using our intelligent map generation tech. The surviv.io dev team is dedicated to keeping the game fresh and exciting.

Play surviv.io on Mac with Parallels (virtualized)
The easiest way to play surviv.io 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).
surviv.io installation steps for Mac
Go to Parallels.com and download the latest version of the software.
Follow the installation process and make sure you allow Parallels in your Mac’s security preferences (it will prompt you to do so).
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.
Once Windows is done installing, you are ready to go. All that’s left to do is install surviv.io like you would on any PC.
