Vikas Gupta of TransGaming took the stage during the EVE Online Fanfest keynote on Saturday afternoon, to introduce the release date of the Mac and Linux clients. Although the game has only been available for Windows to date -- and therefore the audience at the Fanfest therefore consisted mostly of Windows gamers -- the crowd cheered when the Apple logo appeared on the displays, as CCP Games CEO Hilmar Petursson introduced Vikas Gupta to the stage.
As with the Windows version, the game application will be a free download, and a free 14 day trial is available, after which the monthly subscription cost of $14.95 (€14.95 in Europe) will apply. Reduced prices are available for 3, 6, and 12 month plans. See the link below for more information about EVE Online subscriptions.
