Feral Interactive to release Batman: Arkham City on OS X in November
Mac OS X has never been known for its gaming prowess. In fact, it’s never been known for even supporting many games, with the introduction of a Mac-compatible Steam client being the first big step towards making the Mac something even resembling a choice for gamers.
Fortunately, Macs have gained enough – steam – in recent years that some developers have taken notice and started to port games over to the platform. One such developer is Feral Interactive. For years now, Feral has been creating awesome Mac ports of popular video games that were originally Windows-only. Some of those games include Batman: Arkham Asylum, both BioShock games, and the original Borderlands game. The developer’s next port will be Batman: Arkham City, which will come to the Mac sometime in November.
The madhouse will become the city later this year when Batman: Arkham City, the momentous, open-world sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, descends on the Mac.
The Mac version of Batman: Arkham City will be the Game of the Year Edition, which contains all the heroic downloadable content and expansion packs for Batman: Arkham City, including the Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC, the Catwoman DLC, extra challenge maps and the Nightwing and Robin packs, which let you become Robin and Nightwing as you take on the game’s challenge mode.
I own a number of Feral ports and have always been incredibly impressed with them – and if it weren’t for the fact that I recently built a gaming rig in anticipation of Windows 8, I’d likely purchase this port, too.
If you own a Mac, will you be roaming the streets of Arkham City as Batman come November?[Feral Interactive via Mac Rumors]
