Aspyr Media has announced that Activision Publishing’s Call of Duty: Black Ops will be coming to the Mac. Developed originally by award-winning studio Treyarch and brought to the Mac by Aspyr Media, Call of Duty: Black Ops will be available on Macs worldwide in digital and boxed formats this fall.

“Aspyr has worked with the biggest brands in the entertainment world, but the launch of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops for Apple fans is our biggest in 17 years. Treyarch has created a masterpiece and we are thrilled to launch later this year,” said Ted Staloch, Aspyr’s Executive Vice President.

Call of Duty: Black Ops takes players to conflicts across the globe as elite black operations forces fight in the deniable operations and secret wars that occurred under the veil of the Cold War. Featuring an adrenaline-pumping single-player campaign, out-of-this-world Zombies co-operative game mode, and an incredibly deep multiplayer experience, Call of Duty: Black Ops delivers the complete Call of Duty experience with amazing enhanced graphics, streaming texture technology, and superior lighting effects for the most immersive and cinematic action.


  • The hallmark intensity of Call of Duty returns with a cinematically intense single-player campaign that takes players deep behind enemy lines as an elite Black Ops soldier engaging in covert warfare, classified operations, and explosive conflicts across the globe.
  • ZOMBIES! For the first time on the Mac, fight to survive in one of the most thrilling and critically acclaimed co-op experiences in gaming.
  • Expanding on the series' ultimate multiplayer experience, Call of Duty: Black Ops takes competitive play to new heights. Expect the fast-paced, action-packed combat you love with more features than ever before:
    • All new Killstreaks including Napalm Strikes, the remote controlled explosive device (RC Car), and controllable helicopters.
    • Customize the look of your soldiers with a variety of face paints, gun camos, and equipment options.
    • Jump into Combat Training and hone your tactics against A.I. bots in both Free-For-All and Team Deathmatch game modes.
  • First Strike! Escalation! Annihilation! Rezurrection! All four packs of Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC are scheduled to arrive on the Mac later this year. More details to be released soon.

City Of Heroes Summer Blockbuster Double Feature Detailed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

NCSoft and Paragon Studios have posted a new Intrepid Informer article detailing features in its super hero themed MMO, City of Heroes. This time the Informer focuses on the game's Summer Blockbuster Double Feature, two special events for players to enjoy.

My goal with this event was to do something unlike anything we've done before. The Summer Blockbuster has provided me the opportunity to make homage to the over-the-top movies that I love while providing a unique play experience for City of Heroes that also has appeal to our international audience. Our art department has been hard at work, crafting some of the most stand-out locations in the game thus far for this event.

In 'Time Gladiator,' players must battle Minotaurs, Ninjas, Robots and Gunslingers on the sandy grounds of an immense Roman coliseum. Wave after wave of enemies assails the players and they must survive at any cost to become the new champions. The coliseum crowd is the ultimate judge of your team's performance and they will scream and cheer for a proper show. Should you oblige them, the God-Champion of the coliseum may reveal himself and subject your team to the ultimate challenge.

In 'Casino Heist," you find yourself knocking over the posh and luxurious casino, Tyrant's Palace. Each with their own roles, your team will con, sneak, hack and steal its way through the security defenses of the casino. Just as you're about to get away with your haul, the Chief of Security will appear to settle the score. Taking the Tyrant's Palace Casino for everything it's worth will require specialized expertise and finesse.

The City of Heroes Summer Blockbuster Double Feature began on June 27. Head over to the page below to read more.
