Deus Ex: Human Revolution Arrives on the Mac App Store

Thursday April 26, 2012 10:04 AM PDT by Jordan Golson
The critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution has finally arrived on the Mac, after being promised in September of last year. Unlike some games released for the Mac recently, Human Revolution was just released for PC and consoles last summer. Some game titles new to the Mac were originally released as many as 6 years ago.

When former SWAT commander Adam Jensen is forced to undergo cybernetic augmentation, he discovers that the boundary between man and machine is a point of no return. Uncover the truth behind a global conspiracy in a first-person role-playing game where you must combine combat, stealth, hacking and social interaction to determine the course of human evolution.

In a world where amoral corporations market biomechanical modifications and those who protest against them are silenced, only those who adapt survive. Discover the true potential of your augmentations and manipulate Adam’s body into your perfect machine.
The Mac version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution already includes the 'Missing Link' downloadable content pack, the Explosive Mission and Tactical Enhancement expansion packs, a 44-minute "making-of" documentary, a 40-page book of design and concept art, motion comic, a soundtrack composed by Michael McCann, and three trailers.

The game weighs in at more than 15 gigabytes and does not support any of the following graphics cards: ATI X1xxx series, ATI HD2xxx series, NVIDIA 9400, NVIDIA 7xxx series, NVIDIA 320M, Intel HD3000 and Intel GMA series.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Ultimate Edition is available for $49.99 on the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]

Some game titles new to the Mac were originally released (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/04/19/quake-4-complete-with-cross-platform-multiplayer-arrives-on-the-mac-app-store/) as many as 6 years ago.


Quake 4 was originally released for both the Mac and PC 6 years ago (granted, the Mac version came 6 months after the PC version.) Quake 4 was only just released for the Mac App Store a few weeks ago.

So, no, Quake 4 wasn't new to the Mac. It was new to the Mac App Store.

(For those not seeing the relevance between what I'm saying and what I'm quoting, note that the article links to "Quake 4, Complete with Cross-Platform Multiplayer, Arrives on the Mac App Store".)

Your are right! the HD 4000 ivy bridge. Will be greatly beneficial to PC Gaming, and especially Mac Gaming. because the hd 4000 will be in mainstream everyday laptops as an integrated gnu, however it will be able to handle pretty much any game. can even run games like crisis 2 on low settings. This will be really great the new MBP and MBAs coming out this summer with ivy bridge. The HD 4000 is going to be a strong push in MAC Gaming.


Dunno if it was just me but this sounded REALLY sarcastic lol.

1) I would advise against downloading from MAS as whenever there is a patch (however small) you have to re-download the whole 16Gb!!! Get it from Feral direct, and then you can apply the patch quickly when it's released.


The MAS switched to incremental updates a couple of months ago.

No Air or 13" but as I said above that'll change very soon. The HD 4000 in ivy bridge can handle it.

Why can't we just lower the graphics settings so that we can play on obsolete, low-end, cheap systems like a one-year-old top-of-the-line MacBook Pro?

Um... every single game released in history pretty much. The higher the graphics settings, the more resources the game uses. Newer games have nearly always have better graphics than the last, and most likely, higher specs needed to run it (the exception here is games designed for consoles).

The OS X Dues Ex doesn't warrant the hardware required for the graphics it gives. But that is a side effect of porting.


Gaming is what pushes a huge group of people to buy new hardware in the PC world and graphics is the main reason. This has been the case for quite some time. iD software made a number of these games with each successor requiring lots more GPU power for the full effect of what the visuals of the game had.

----------

So, Feral ports the game, and then makes no money off of it? For companies like Valve or Blizzard that do their own Mac ports, it makes sense for them to allow the game to run on either platform. For third-party development houses like Feral, TransGaming, Aspyr etc it makes zero sense for them to give their work away for free.

I would encourage folks to support companies like Feral by actually purchasing the Mac version of the game, we're getting a lot more titles and seeing releases in a much more timely manner, and I for one want to see that trend continue.


Amen.... has it not been for Feral there would have been few if any Mac gameing titles in years past.
