Sequel brings separate multiplayer mode
Feral Interactive has released a Mac port of BioShock 2, an action-RPG originally developed by 2K Games and Digital Extremes. As in the original Windows and console games, the main story has players assume the role of a Big Daddy in Rapture about 10 years after the conclusion of the first BioShock. Whereas that game dealt with an objectivist threat, the second one has players facing off against a collectivist cult threatening the player's Little Sister.
A separate multiplayer mode called The Fall of Rapture has gamers assume the roles of test subjects in the civil war that preceded the events of BioShock. Feral is selling BioShock 2 for $31 through its own website, as well as the Mac App Store. Buyers must have at least a 2GHz Mac with 4GB of RAM and 256MB of video memory, running OS X 10.7.2 or later.
