Earlier confirmed by Feral Interactive as headed to the Mac
, Bioshock is now available as a free download as well, in the form of a demo version. Developed by 2K Boston and 2K Australia, and originally published by 2K Games, Bioshock introduces gamers to a world filled with fascinating characters, intelligent enemies and complex, moral choices.
Bioshock is a “genetically enhanced,” first-person shooter that lets players turn everything they can get their hands on into a weapon, biologically modify their character’s body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade weapons, or develop new types of ammunition, etc. Below, Softpedia has reproduced the official Feral post announcing the Bioshock demo for Mac. Look, Mr Bubbles! A demo! Of Bioshock!
The multi award-winning game has already been getting rave reviews, and now you too can get a taste of rapture by visiting the downloads area.
