6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 9 comments

Gearbox Software and Feral Interactive recently announced that today is the release date for the Mac edition of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, the unique role-playing shooter. The Borderlands Game of the Year package comes complete with the best-selling Borderlands stand-alone game, its entire game add-on library, and a bonus fold out map of Pandora.

Borderlands has been a runaway commercial and critical hit since its release last year. Players are able to take on one of four bounty hunters, each with unique skills and weapon proficiencies, as they take quest for information and valuable alien artifacts rumored to reside in ‘The Vault’. Players have only their wits and whatever weapons they can find to face off against the numerous enemies they encounter while searching for the Vault.

“Borderlands represents a brave, new take on the role playing shooter game on the Mac,” said Feral Interactive managing director David Stephen. “It thoroughly deserves the critical and commercial success it has enjoyed and we are honored to be publishing it on the Mac.”

Borderlands sports a unique combination of features that make it a gaming experience unlike anything else on the Mac. Prime among these are a groundbreaking content-generation system that provides a nearly endless variety of weapons, robust four-player co-op support that makes for a compelling multiplayer experience, RPG-style character progression allied to an FPS-style game mechanics and a super sharp visual style that gives the game a highly distinctive comic book look.

Mac customers will also receive all four frenzied add-on adventures included with the Borderlands Game of the Year edition including The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, latest new adventure – Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution – where players will join forces in an attempt to suppress the infamous Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap.

“We are absolutely thrilled that Mac gamers will now be able to join in on the world of Pandora in Borderlands.” said Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software. “The best part is that every Mac gamer gets to experience the game plus all the ass-kicking add-on packs for Borderlands! They are getting the full complete package, and this is the best way to enjoy such an extravasplosive game like Borderlands.”

Minimum system requirements call for a 1.8 GHz Intel Mac with at least 2 GB RAM, 128 MB or better graphics card, DVD drive, and Mac OS X v10.6.4 or later. The following cards are NOT supported: ATI X1xxx series, NVIDIA 7xxx series and Intel GMA series.
