It's taken a few decades, but Mac is finally becoming home to the latest video game tech. The preferred OS of turtleneck-wearing Apple users supports Source Engine, Unreal Engine 3, and now, idTech 5. Aspyr and id Software have announced a Mac version of Rage, and it's available right now.
Dubbed the "Campaign Edition," the Mac version of Rage includes the entire single-player experience, enhanced with content that was formerly exclusive to the "Anarchy Edition" of the game. The Mac version also includes the "Wasteland Sewers Missions."
Unfortunately for Mac gamers, while you'll be able to get your hands on id's latest engine, it won't be licensed to third parties.
"Aspyr has been a great partner, bringing id Software's games to the Mac platform for years," Todd Hollenshead, President of id Software, said in the announcement. "We've worked closely with them again to offer the amazing graphics and intense combat that RAGE is famous for to Mac gamers."
Here are the system requirements for getting it running on your Mac:
- Operating System: 10.7.2 (Lion)
