In a recent post to its website Feral Interactive announced that the Mac version of Bioshock is now shipping. The first person adventure title drops players into the undersea world of Rapture where they must avoid being killed by the bizarre denizens of the city while seeking a way to escape.

Hello there, little fish. We're pleased to announce that Bioshock for Mac has emerged dripping from the murky waters of development, and is now shipping worldwide from the webstore and all good Mac game retailers. Don't worry, we towelled it down first.

Bioshock drops you into the failed utopia of Rapture, a city built beneath the waves and filled with advanced technology, beautiful art deco styling, and some seriously unhinged inhabitants. When genetic enhancements got out of hand, the city started to fall apart. Now at war with itself, Rapture may have found its saviour in the form of an unexpected visitor — you.

More information about the game:
BioShock introduces gamers to an exciting world filled with fascinating characters, intelligent enemies and complex moral choices that define the foundation of the game’s world. With its rich story, meticulous attention to visual detail, tense action and infinite replay value, BioShock delivers the perfect blend of storytelling and first-person action.

Barely surviving a plane crash, the player lands in icy uncharted waters and discovers the undersea city of Rapture, a failed utopia whose citizens had embraced genetic engineering before descending into pure anarchy. Power and greed have run amok and the city has succumbed to civil war. To survive, gamers must turn everything they find into a weapon, use their powers of observation to piece together what happened and make the difficult decisions necessary in order to escape a paradise gone badly wrong.

Fans have embraced BioShock’s mysterious world filled with powerful technology and creative gameplay. BioShock is also renowned for its rich visual detail depicting a gorgeous Art Deco world set deep beneath the sea.

  • 1.8 GHz Intel Mac
  • 1.5 GB RAM
  • 128 MB graphics card
  • DVD drive
  • 8 GB of hard disk space
  • Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later.
  • The game does not support Intel GMA integrated video chipsets, but does run on the latest generation of MacBooks and Mac Minis.
