It’s about two years behind the Windows release, but who cares; in just under a week you’ll be able to tell those Zune-loving sods to take their “but Macs can’t game” nonsense and shove it down the barrel of your MP5 — because Call of Duty: Black Ops arrives next Thursday. In the meantime, Aspyr has again made the three other Call of Duty titles temporarily half-off, just to hold you over.
Aspyr says the game will include the First Strike DLC and retail for $50 at the Mac App Store, Steam and Aspyr’s own GameAgent (though, oddly, GameAgent lists the game at $45). The last two DLCs will be out as a single package, before Christmas, for $25.
As for multiplayer, you’ll be able to play users on any other version of the game, regardless of where they bought it. Unfortunately, no cross-platform jousting though.
One final note: Better upgrade that Mac, as the system requirements are pretty crazy.
