Aspyr makes Rage: Campaign Edition game available for Mac

updated 09:00 pm EST, Thu February 2, 2012

Mac version offers extra equipment, missions

Based on the original game by Bethesda Softworks and iD Software, Aspyr has ported the first-person shooter Rage to the Mac in a "Campaign Edition" that features bonus equipment and missions formerly exclusive to the Rage: Anarchy Edition for the PC and Xbox. The Mad Max-style post-apocalypse adventure uses the iD Tech 5 OpenGL engine and represents the first entry in the Rage franchise for the Mac.

A "little slice" of the larger Rage game has already been made available for iOS devices under the same name, but the iOS games focus on the "Mutant Bash TV" aspect of the larger game. iD head John Carmack has hinted that another iOS game based on Rage is in development.

The desktop version of Rage casts the player as a Mad Max type character who takes on bandit gangs, mutant hordes and other enemies with an arsenal of unusual weapons. The Mac version includes equipment from supplementary add-ons to earlier versions of the game, which include Crimson Elite Armor and the Rat Rod Buggy among other items. Players will also have access to extra missions not originally available in the game, which take place in the Wasteland Sewers.

The game features state-of-the-art resolution graphics, and supports English, French and German languages. It sells for $40 and requires Mac OS X 10.7.2 or higher, 4GB of RAM and supports the ATI Radeon HD 3870, Nvidia GeForce 8800 and other 256MB video cards, including the Intel HD Graphics 3000 chipset.

The game cannot be used on volumes formatted as Mac OS X Extended (Case Sensitive), the company warns. It's available for download from Aspyr's GameAgent store as well as the Mac App Store and other Mac supporting game download sites.

    Wish I bought via GameAgent because the MacApp Store isn't giving me anything above 200Kb/s... averaging HALF that right now...

    Lion

    I got so fed up with all of Lion's silly new ways that I decided to downgrade to 10.6.8.
    What joy, sorry Aspyr, but you lost a sale with the Lion requirement.
    I'll probably buy it in the future though, Lion is bound to be unavoidable at some point :-(
