The Mac Open Beta is Here

The League of Legends Mac client is now in open beta and available for download. And yes, we’re sure this time!

You can grab the Mac Open Beta client over at the download page.

Going native on Mac has been a big goal for us, and we’re really excited to offer the same experience across both platforms. And just in case you’re still skeptical, we managed to wrangle an endorsement from this business-savvy professional. We’re confident you all know that this man games as he pleases!

The Mac client does everything that the PC client does, meaning you’ll get all future features, bug fixes and new content on the same schedule as PC players, but on your native OS. The Cross-Platform team will also continue working diligently to smash any Mac bugs that surface during the open beta.

We want to thank Mac players for waiting so patiently – and a special thanks to the awesome summoners over at iLoL who helped you play on your native OS while the official client was in development. You rock, iLoLers, and we appreciate all the dedication you’ve shown to your fellow Mac-enthusiasts.

Hey, dudes!

We’re really excited to officially welcome Mac summoners to the Fields of Justice. Sorry it took longer than expected. Let’s hear it for the iLoL guys for keeping everyone out of Bootcamp while we finished building our official client.

To the Mac community: thank you first and foremost for your patience. We know this took a while, even by soon™ standards. It was important to us that we develop a fully native client without taking any shortcuts. We are excited to finally ditch the bootcamp partitions. Very special thanks to Boompje and the iLoL team for all of their great work.

That video wins, I want that health/mana watercooler.

Awesome! So, now I guess soon iBlitzcrank will be released in celebration of this? Wonder if they will have some kind of penguin skin if they ever come around to making a Linux version...

EDIT: Holy **** that video is awesome. Going to have to watch it a few times to catch all the subtle LoL references. Can we have more amazing vids like that?
