Lies of P MacOS Performance With The Different Methods

Lies of P Mac M1 performance with Steam’s Native Version

Our experience with the native Steam version of Lies of P on a base M1 MacBook Air was nothing short of spectacular. The game ran at a smooth 60 FPS, making the most out of the M1’s capabilities. The resolution and settings were optimized to deliver a stunning visual experience, truly bringing the game’s intricate world to life. We could only imagine that, on a newer M2 MacBook Pro, the performance will soar even higher.

According to our research, it seems that the experience with the Apple App Store version of the game isn’t much different from what we got with Steam. There were several comments in the Reddit gaming community about achieving 60fps at 4k max settings and a user shared that their M2 Studio Ultra handled the game effortlessly, which only highlights the power of Apple’s latest hardware.

Lies of P MacOS performance with Boosteroid

After having a blast with the native version of the game, we initially approached cloud gaming with a hint of skepticism, wondering if it could truly deliver a satisfactory gaming experience. Our experience with Lies of P on Mac via Boosteroid, however, transformed this skepticism into enthusiasm. With the cloud service, the constraints of system compatibility or hardware limitations vanished, as the game streamed directly to our browser, irrespective of our Mac’s specifications.

In our testing, Lies of P streamed smoothly on a modest wireless internet connection of 20 Mbps. Despite the occasional lag spikes which caused minor resolution drops and stuttering, the game performed well on our M1 MacBook Air and the stream’s quick recovery ensured uninterrupted gameplay, so nothing detracted us from our enjoyment of this single-player adventure.

Lies of P on Mac with Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Cloud Gaming was the other cloud gaming way of playing Lies of P on Mac which we wanted to test. In terms of streaming quality, it provided us with a stable 1080p and 60 FPS experience similar to what we had with Boosteroid, and if you use the Microsoft Edge browser, there’s an added Clarity Boost feature that significantly enhances the game’s visual fidelity. This made our experience with Lies of P on a Mac visually appealing and immersive, and allowed us to take the most of the platform’s streaming capabilities.

However, it’s important to note that, for our team, playing Lies of P for Mac through Xbox Cloud Gaming felt more like a console experience, especially in terms of controls. For those who are accustomed to gaming with a Mac-compatible game controller, this setup is ideal. But for users without a controller, adapting to this style might be challenging, as it deviates from the traditional keyboard and mouse setup common to Mac gaming. Despite this, Xbox Cloud Gaming stands out as an excellent option for Mac users, especially for those comfortable with console-style controls.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Lies of P for Mac offers a diverse range of gaming experiences. Cloud services like Boosteroid and Xbox Game Pass provide effortless access with commendable performance, ideal for those seeking convenience. However, for the ultimate experience in visual fidelity and performance, the native version, especially on newer Mac models like the M1 and M2, stands unmatched for us but the choice ultimately hinges on the gamer’s preference for convenience or raw power.
