Following the initial announcement this spring of its impending release, Aspyr revealed this week that well-received first-person shooter sequel BioShock Infinite will make its Mac debut on August 29. The vibrant adventure, which is the best-selling multiplatform release of 2013 thus far according to NPD, launched on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 back in March.
Set in the floating city of Columbia in the year 1912, BioShock Infinite follows private investigator Booker DeWitt as he searches for Elizabeth, a young woman with amazing powers who has been locked away for years. Following ample anticipation, BioShock Infinite launched to rave reviews earlier this year, with the PC version notching a 94 review average at Metacritic.
Pre-orders for the shooter are open now from Aspyr's own GameAgent service, with early buyers receiving free access to the Columbia's Finest downloadable content pack, which adds numerous in-game items to your arsenal. Additionally, GameAgent account holders will receive 20 percent off the list price of $59.99. The game will also be available from the Mac App Store and Steam on the release date, and the latter features Steam Play support to allow access to both the Mac and PC versions with a single purchase. Aspyr also plans to have the newly-released "Clash in the Clouds" premium downloadable content available at or near the game's launch on Mac.
BioShock Infinite is the third game in the celebrated series, though it takes place prior to the previous titles and features a brand new set of characters. The original BioShock first debuted in 2007, transporting players to the dazzling underwater city of Rapture. Even six years after its initial release, it ranks on our list of The 25 Best Mac Games Today. Sequel BioShock 2 followed in 2010, and while not developed by Irrational, it proved to be another great, atmospheric first-person shooter.
