Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition
If you watched the Apple event where they released new Macs and iPad Pros they also had a section showing the critically acclaimed role playing game Divinity: Original Sin 2. It turns out the game is on its way to the Mac and not in a small way. This will not be a poorly and sloppy port, It will take advantage of many Apple technologies such as making it a 64-bit, Metal native game.
Just check out this spec list.

- eGPU support (10.13+ only)
- V-sync support (10.13+ only)

Divinity: Original Sin 2 have sold over 2 million copies. Its one of the most highly rated role playing games and could easily be the best RPG on the Mac. Apples Metal Team is working with the developer to bring this game to the Mac. Planned release is Q1 2019.
The game will support iCloud backups, but not only that you will be able to cross-play between Windows and macOS.
Torchlight 1 & 2
You should check out a game called Torchlight. It’s an action RPG game developed by people who previously have worked on Diablo, Diablo II, Mythos etc. The music is composed by the original author that made the music for Diablo.
Somewhat cartoonish graphics but it works, and the game isn’t so demanding for your computer. You don’t need the most high-end gaming rig to play this game. I have played the game and it is pretty nice. You can download it from the Steam client.
Torchlight 2 is also out.
Eschalon: Book 1, 2 & 3
Eschalon is an old-school style fantasy RPG. The game-play perspective is in third person. You guide your character around towns and dungeons. Fighting monsters and picking up treasures while all other elements of a good old RPG are there. Many reviewers give this game high ratings. This is not an old game, it is just developed in that particular style.
Who doesn’t know about this game? Diablo 3 is available through battle.net. You can watch a video below where I test it on a MacBook Pro 2016 w/ Radeon Pro 455 in (2560 x 1440).
