Better late than never, as the saying goes. BioShock 2 will be coming to the Mac platform in January of next year. The port is being handled by Feral Interactive, the studio behind the Mac versions of Mafia 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and the original BioShock.
The game will retail for $34.95, and will be offered as a digital download from partners and the Mac App Store. The announcement mentions that it includes the “Fall of Rapture” multiplayer mode, but doesn’t give any indication that the excellent Minerva’s Den downloadable content will come to the platform.
The minimum system requirements are a 2.0 GHz Intel Mac with at least 4GB RAM, Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later, and 256MB of graphics memory. The game doesn’t support ATI X1xxx series, ATI 2400, NVIDIA 9400, NVIDIA 7xxx series, or Intel GMA series graphics cards.
“BioShock 2 shows Rapture in a completely new light,” said Feral managing director David Stephen, in the announcement. “By allowing players to be a Big Daddy, it explores the emotional consequences of the Rapture project.”
