What is Boosteroid?

Boosteroid is a gaming platform that uses cloud technology to enable its customers to play any game from the Boosteroid games library directly from the customer’s browser. Boosteroid is perfect for Mac users who wish to play games that aren’t supported for macOS.

Boosteroid and other similar platforms are great for Mac users who want to be able to play games on their Macs. As you probably already know, most Windows games aren’t supported for Mac systems, so it can be rather difficult to get them running on a Mac. However, with cloud gaming, you can easily play such games on your Mac since, technically, they won’t actually be running on your machine, but on a remote gaming rig that your Mac would be connected to. The gameplay from that remote gaming rig would be getting streamed to your Mac, and you’d be controlling what’s happening in the game, even though the game itself wouldn’t be running on your Mac.

There are two huge advantages to this type of gaming – you can play unsupported games on your Mac, and you can play games that have minimum requirements that exceed your Mac’s hardware specifications. The minimum requirements for using the Boosteroid service itself are rather low (see below), with the only exception being the Internet connection – since the gameplay is being streamed to you, you’d need a good Internet connection for single-player games and an above-average connection for multiplayer gaming through Boosteroid. Otherwise, you will likely get lots of lag and high ping.

There are many services similar to Boosteroid that can enable you to play unsupported games on your Mac, but the advantages of Boosteroid are that it is super easy to set up and use and that it can be used from pretty much any device with a browser. Further down this post, we will show you how you can create a Boosteroid account and use it to play different games on your Mac. Before you begin completing the steps, however, make sure to check out the Boosteroid requirements section. Its requirements aren’t particularly high, but you should still make sure that your Mac and Internet connection meets them.

Boosteroid requirements

Note 1: It’s not impossible to use Boosteroid if one or more of those requirements aren’t fully met, but you will likely get performance hiccups while gaming.

Note 2: If the game you want to play is free, you will still need to be registered on the games store that distributes it or on the official site of that game (for example, to play League of Legends through Boosteroid, you must be registered on the website of Riot Games).

How to use Boosteroid on Mac

  1. Go to Boosteroid, click Create an account, and register with your email address. Alternatively, you can sign up with your Google account, but, in our experience, this doesn’t always work.
  2. Log in to your new Boosteroid account and check your Internet connection with the Network Test button at the top. If your connection isn’t good enough, you can still try playing games with Boosteroid, but you may not get a satisfactory performance.

  3. Search for the game you want to play and click on its icon. If there are several versions of that game from different games stores, click on the version that’s from the games store where you’ve purchased the game. If no such version is available (for example, you own the game in Epic Games Store, but there’s only a Steam version for it in Boosteroid), you won’t be able to play that game through Boosteroid unless you purchase it in the supported store.
  4. On the game’s page, click Play, and once you are prompted to subscribe to the service, click Subscribe.

  5. Choose the payment plan and payment method you prefer, and complete your subscription by entering and confirming your payment details.

  6. Go back to the game’s page, select the Play button, click OK, let’s go, and wait for a couple of moments as the game loads.
  7. Enter your username and password for the games store through which you will play the game to log in.
  8. Follow any other prompts that may appear to start the game.
