deusex announce mainDeus 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.

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)

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.

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

Yep... the landscape is changing ....

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.
