Bioshock: Inifite launches next week. But so what, right? That’s only of interest to people with consoles or Windows. Well not any more!
Aspyr tell us that they will be bringing us a Mac version, although they aren’t telling us exactly when, just “summer”. The game is something of a departure from the underwater Rapture setting, instead taking place in a dystopian city in the sky. But that aside, it seems to have much in common with the original Bioshocks, including first-person shooting, wacky powers, and what looks to be an engrossing storyline:
Set in 1912, players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the flying city of Columbia on a rescue mission. His target? Elizabeth, imprisoned since childhood. During their daring escape, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond — one that lets Booker augment his own abilities with her world-altering control over the environment. Together, they fight from high-speed Sky-Lines, in the streets and houses of Columbia, on giant zeppelins, and in the clouds, all while learning to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities.
This marks the second game series that has had its Mac porting responsibilities handed over from Feral Interactive to Aspyr, so here’s hoping they do a good a job of it as they did with Borderlands 2 (and hopefully will be SteamPlay enabled).
Update: According to a post by an Aspyr representative, it will be available on Steam and the Mac App Store.
