Deus Ex: Human Revolution Arrives on the Mac App Store

by

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 (https://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".)

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.

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.

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?
