Thanks to the transition to Apple M1 Silicon for these new Mac devices, Marmalade’s iOS title MONOPOLY will now be compatible with all devices using the chip.
This beloved adaptation of MONOPOLY consistently sits around #3 in the App Store’s paid-for games charts, and #1 in the board game charts. Marmalade Game Studio worked closely with Apple on the lead up to the event. Seamless compatibility with the new Mac lineup has been a top priority, in order to deliver the best game experience on this exciting new platform!
Apple Silicon brings a new level of compatibility to Mac devices. This means that players can challenge their friends and family to MONOPOLY across Mac, iPhone and iPad, all at once!
For players who already own MONOPOLY on iOS, they’ll be able to seamlessly access the game on their new Mac, and any additional DLC they own, for absolutely no extra cost!
Cristina Mereuta, COO of Marmalade Game Studio, said “At Marmalade, we’re all about bringing people together through games, wherever they are. So this announcement is really exciting for us. We love that Apple Silicon is opening up a whole new platform to our players. We’re also very happy that our players who already own MONOPOLY on their phone, will be able to play it on their MacBook, seamlessly, at no extra cost. It just works, and it’s exactly how technology should be!”
MONOPOLY will be available via the App Store on all Mac devices with Apple Silicon, as well as iOS devices, priced at £3.99/$3.99/€4.49
