Play your Windows Steam Library on your Apple Silicon Mac (for free)

Unlock the world of Windows gaming on your Apple Silicon Mac with the help of Whisky! In this quick start guide, I'll show you how to get up and running with Windows games as quickly as possible. Forget the cumbersome command-line installations of the past—Whisky makes it a breeze. This free app is your ticket to playing DirectX 11 and 12 games on your Apple Silicon Mac.

Written version:

Before you dive in, make sure you have an Apple Silicon Mac, preferably running macOS 14 Sonoma for the best experience. A higher-spec Mac, with 16 GB of RAM, will perform even better. Also, keep in mind that games can take up a significant amount of space, so ensure you have enough free storage. The first step is to download Whisky, a tiny app that will prompt you to install Rosetta 2, a translation technology by Apple, essential for running Windows software. This download totals over 400 MBs.

Now, head to the Steam website and download the Windows version of Steam. Whisky uses WINE, and WINE bottles are self-contained environments that allow Windows applications to run on non-Windows operating systems. Create a new bottle, open the C drive, and drag the SteamSetup.exe into the drive_c folder. Return to Whisky, click Run, and select SteamSetup to complete the setup process. Sign in to your Steam account. Install games as usual,. While some older titles may not work, you'll find that many DirectX 11 and 12 games run seamlessly, offering you an impressive gaming experience on your Apple Silicon Mac. Be sure to check game compatibility resources mentioned below to stay updated on supported titles as Whisky continues to evolve.
