The answer is Yes. In fact, there is no Mac version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, but you can play it through a Windows virtual machine or a cloud-gaming service. Here are the steps.

How to Play Marvel Spider-Man Remastered on Mac

Method 1: Virtualization

Boot Camp Assistant is one of the easiest ways to install Windows on a Mac system. However, Apple only supports Boot Camp on Macs powered by an Intel processor. If you now have a Mac with an Apple Silicon chip, there is another option: Virtualization. Parallels Desktop is among the best virtual machines for Mac. It’s been updated to run on M1 or M2-based Macs. We will show you how to create a virtual machine with Parallels Desktop on Mac.

  1. Go to and download the free trial of the software. 
  2. Run the file you downloaded earlier and follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. Once you have installed Parallels Desktop on your Mac, open it and select Install Windows. 
  4. You will be asked to create a Parallels profile. Now follow the instructions to finish the installation of Windows on your Mac. 
  5. Now, install Steam and purchase the game.
  6. Install the game on your Mac, and you are good to go.

Note that you may not get the best performance running the game on a virtual machine. 

Method 2: Cloud Gaming Service

Another method to play Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on Mac is using a cloud gaming service. Services like Boosteroid or GeForce Now make running Windows games on Mac possible without having to download them or running a virtual machine. 

  1. Head to GeForce Now and sign up for an account
  2. Now link your GeForce Now account with your Steam library
  3. Play the game.

Note that you can upgrade to GeForce Now premium starting at $9.99 per month for extended gaming sessions and access to RTX features.
