CrossOver 24 has arrived, bringing improved compatibility, wider game support, and a smoother user experience.

We’re proud to announce the release of CrossOver 24! 🥳 Featuring the latest and greatest Wine 9.0 stable, user interface improvements, and bug fixes for many games.

What is CrossOver24?

CrossOver 24 (software) allows users to run Windows applications and games on macOS, Linux, and ChromeOS. It is based on Wine, but it adds several features and improvements that make it easier to use and more compatible with Windows software.

Popular titles like Horizon Zero Dawn, Anno 1800, Planet Zoo, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition all benefit from fixes and improvements, making them playable on your Mac.

Not just gaming, CrossOver 24 extends its reach beyond just games. The return of 32-bit application support was a major win for users on macOS Catalina and later, when Apple dropped official support for these older programs. With CrossOver 24, you can breathe new life into your favorite 32-bit Windows tools and utilities.

The update also includes an upgraded Wine Mono runtime environment and the latest vkd3d implementation, both contributing to smoother gameplay and improved application performance. Whether you’re battling aliens in Horizon Zero Dawn or managing your zoo in Planet Zoo, you can expect a more responsive and enjoyable experience.

Additionally, the new bottle creation wizard simplifies the setup process, making it easier than ever to get started with your Windows applications. Additionally, the UI has been optimized for high-resolution displays, ensuring a crisp and visually appealing experience.

With improved compatibility, 32-bit app support, performance enhancements, and a user-friendly experience, CrossOver 24 is a compelling option for anyone seeking to seamlessly bridge the gap between macOS and Windows.
