BioShock 2 emerges on Mac today

BioShock 2 is out on Mac today, in just enough time for you to enjoy the entire game before playing BioShock Infinite on anything but Mac this October — although if you enjoy waiting, we hear the Vita version still doesn’t have a release date. BioShock 2 on Mac includes the multiplayer component, The Fall of Rapture, as well as the complete campaign.

Irrational previously announced BioShock 2 would hit Mac in January, published by Feral Interactive. Turns out half of that statement was true, and BioShock 2 is today available for Mac download via the Feral store, Mac App Store, Gamersgate, Gamefly, Mac Game Store and Macgames.fr.

Feral Interactive today released the genetically enhanced role-playing shooter, BioShock[TM]2, for the Mac. Developed by 2K Marin, 2K Australia, 2K China and Digital Extremes, and published by 2K Games for games consoles and PC, BioShock 2 is a sequel to the legendary BioShock.

As well as the main game, the Mac edition of BioShock 2 also contains an entirely separate multiplayer game, The Fall of Rapture. Players take on the role of mutated test subjects for the opportunistic plasmid manufacturer Sinclair Solutions, and engage in the civil war that tore Rapture apart.

The suggested retail price for BioShock 2 for the Mac in North America is US $30.99, £21.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €24.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. It is available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including http://www.feralinteractive.com and the Mac App Store. A mini-site dedicated to the Mac version of the game is available now at http://www.feralinteractive.com/bioshock2, and a trailer can be found at http://www.youtube.com/user/feralinteractive.

Minimum system requirements call for a 2.0Ghz Mac with at least 4.0GB RAM, Mac OS X 10.7.2 or later, and 256MB of graphics memory. The following graphics cards are not supported: ATI X1xxx series, ATI 2xxx series, NVIDIA 9400, NVIDIA 7xxx series and Intel GMA series.
