City Of Heroes For Intel Macs Now In Open Beta Testing
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

NCSoft recently announced the open beta release of City of Heroes, coming soon to Intel macs courtesy of Transgaming's Cider virtualization software. Originally planned for release late this year the game has been pushed ahead to January 2009 while final bug fixes and optimizations are implemented.

Hey Mac Players!

The Mac version of City of Heroes is now in Open Beta. This means that the Mac clients can only access the Training Room, and we have lifted all the restrictions for PC users who can also access to the Training Room. You will start to see a lot of new faces as more and more Mac players come in for their first taste of City of Heroes.

If you are one of those new faces, I would like to say “welcome!” I was very excited when our partner TransGaming showed us what they could do to get City of Heroes running on the Mac, and immediately wanted to get this into the hands of Mac players as soon as possible. Of course, we also want to make sure we have worked out as many of the kinks and bugs in the Mac client as possible, and unfortunately that has caused us to push the full release of the Mac version of City of Heroes to January, 2009. We are very confident that by that time we will be able to offer you the best in super-powered massively multiplayer gaming for the Mac.

Once again, welcome to the new players, and I hope you enjoy our game and our player community!
