Mac users can now play Rage natively. And they say that Macs never get games…
From the press release:
Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, in partnership with Aspyr Media, Inc., today announced that RAGE®: Campaign Edition™ is now available for the Mac worldwide. This action-packed new shooter from id Software has been published for the Mac by Aspyr, the leader in Mac games publishing. The game can be digitally downloaded in English, French or German now via Apple’s Mac App Store, Aspyr’s own digital store GameAgent.com, and through other supporting Mac digital retailers.
In RAGE: Campaign Edition you will take on bandit gangs and hordes of mutants with an arsenal of exotic weapons and special items, such as Wingsticks, personal turrets, sentry bots, and remote-controlled bomb cars as you play through the game’s full unaltered single-player campaign. The Mac version will also include bonus equipment formerly exclusive to the RAGE Anarchy Edition, including a Double Barrel Shotgun, the Rat Rod Buggy, Fists of RAGE and Crimson Elite Armor. You’ll also have access to the Wasteland Sewers Missions which feature additional mutant blasting gameplay and looting opportunities.
“Aspyr has been a great partner, bringing id Software’s games to the Mac platform for years,” said Todd Hollenshead, President of id Software. “We’ve worked closely with them again to offer the amazing graphics and intense combat that RAGE is famous for to Mac gamers.”
Developed by id® Software, the creators of DOOM® and QUAKE®, RAGE features intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech® 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more.
