Apple has announced new gaming updates as part of the macOS Ventura announcement. Metal 3 is the most recent version of the Metal programme, and it offers gamers new experiences.

Games like EA’s GRID Legends, Capcom’s Resident Evil Village, and Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky are now available on Macs running Apple Silicon. These titles were previously only accessible on gaming consoles and/or high-end gaming PCs. Because Apple Silicon is also available on the iPad, game creators can create AAA titles for both the Mac and the iPad. Gamers who use a Mac or iPad don’t have to feel left out because they don’t have a gaming machine.

There’s now buddy controller compatibility, allowing two people to play simultaneously on iPhone, iPad, and Mac using wireless controllers. If you’re searching for a game controller, have a look at our guide to Apple-compatible controllers.

According to an Apple press release:

“Metal 3, the latest version of the software that powers the gaming experience across Apple platforms, introduces new features that make the gaming experience on Mac to new heights and unleash the full potential of Apple silicon for years to come. MetalFX Upscaling enables developers to quickly render complex scenes by using less compute-intensive frames, and then apply resolution scaling and temporal anti-aliasing. The result is an accelerated performance that provides gamers with a more responsive feel and graphics that look stunning. Game developers also benefit from a new Fast Resource Loading API that minimizes wait time by providing a more direct path from storage to the GPU, so games can easily access high-quality textures and geometry needed to create expansive worlds for realistic and immersive gameplay”

Additionally, Apple’s gaming updates include the ability to use Game Center to SharePlay games with others. Later this year, upgrades for macOS Ventura, iPadOS 16, and iOS 16 will be released.
