Game premiering on consoles this week
BioShock Infinite, the latest entry in Irrational Games' BioShock franchise, will be arriving on the Mac just a few months after next week's debut of the title on Windows, PlayStation and Xbox 360, Aspyr has announced. It will publish a port of the game that will be available through its GameAgent portal and eventually through other download and retail outlets. Aspyr will be promoting the release by giving away a copy of the game every week until the end of May, suggesting a release in early June.
The Irrational Games release takes place in the year 1912, and involves a former soldier named Booker DeWitt that has money issues: enough so that he is forced into an assignment that requires him to visit the flying city of Columbia and rescue a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood named Elizabeth. Once freed, DeWitt must battle warring factions, deadly zeppelins and a flying beast called the Songbird. Pricing and exact availability on the title has not yet been announced.
Players can try to win a copy of the game by "liking" GameAgent's Facebook page, whereupon users will be prompted to create an account. The game is rated "M" for mature audiences.
