BioShock Infinite Mac, War in the North Ship Aug 29; Usain Bolt Runs
Although day and date release parity with the PC is still somewhat rare, major Mac game titles now arrive much, much faster than before. For example, BioShock Infinite Mac will ship on August 29, about five months after the PC release, and shares the date with Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
Indebted to the wrong people, with his life on the line, veteran of the US Cavalry and now hired gun, Booker DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret — Aspyr
