Deus Ex: Human Revolution Coming to Mac This Winter

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is coming to the Mac this winter, according to Feral Interactive, a publishing company dedicated to bringing game titles to the Mac:
It’s just emerged from the Feral laboratories that the Mac has been wheeled into the operating theatre for an extreme gaming enhancement with Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the critically-acclaimed prequel to the legendary Deus Ex.

Players control ex-SWAT commander Adam Jensen, who is forced to undergo cybernetic augmentation and thrown into the heart of a global conspiracy. He finds himself in a world where only those who adapt survive.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is one of the biggest games of 2011, released for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Pricing, system requirements and delivery mechanism will be announced later this year.

The game uses Steamworks on the PC side, so it's likely there will be a Steam version. However, this doesn't guarantee it'll be SteamPlay (I hope so--I already bought the PC version and won't buy it again).

Of course, Aspyr sells a steamworks (and multiplayer)-less version of Civ V on the App Store, so Feral could do the same. That would mean axing the achievements though.

And like all other of Feral's Mac ports it disappointingly won't be available on Steam.

Great news! I hope the game gets 5.1/7.1 surround support, via the thunderbolt/ATI HDMI output.

Fantastic news for the Mac. This is a AAA title and it's getting it in a reasonable time frame. Mac gaming seems to be on the rise despite Apple, not because of them.

Apple seems to be becoming more aware of the fact that people want to game on their computers though. OpenGL 3.2 is finally available in Lion. It's hard to say where they'll go from here, but I have high hopes they'll get at the very least to 3.3, and maybe 4.0. They essentially went from 2.1 to 3.2, which they've never done before, so at this point it's anyone's guess.

Any SteamPlay game (mac/PC compatible) is instantly available for your macs if you downloaded the PC version. It does seem odd, but that's how Valve decided to roll that feature out.


But do we know if Feral is going to support Steamplay here, or even if they're going to make it available on Steam at all?

(sorry if it's a dumb question, I'm pretty ignorant about Steam)

Thanks for that. That helps me make sense of it.

Honestly, I think part of the problem has been the fact that although you see a lot of Macs around (especially on college campuses), the majority have been lower-end Macs like the on-board Intel-based video Macbooks or Mac Minis. Those weren't really good performers with most of the current 1st. person shooter titles being released.

As the product lineup evolves though, you're at a point now where even the cheapest Macbook Pro 13" includes much better specs than anything you used to see with a Macbook name on it (and for about the same price). For that matter, even any of the "recently discontinued" iMacs you can buy refurbished on sale are capable of running modern games at usable frame-rates.

There's no longer much of an excuse to claim you can't make a Windows title run well enough to play on "most of the Macs being sold", if you port it properly to OS X.


Amen. The whole "PC only" idea seems a bit antiquated right now; there's as many Macs as PCs on my college campus, so surely there's a market out there.

Apple have been aware of that for over a decade, back when great companies like Westlake Interactive kept porting as many major game releases as they could get their hands on and kept reminding Apple that Mac users wanted to play games. That's when IMG started.

Apple have as much interest in gaming outside of an iOS platform as they always have. i.e. none.

I've been eyeing this game. But now that I hear it is coming out for the Mac, I will wait. I might have bought it for my 360 but it should look better on my Mac. So I'm very happy about this. I don't care if it isn't available on Steam. It would be cool if it came out on the App Store, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that.
