Call of Duty: Black Ops Hits the Mac Next Week, All Related CoD Games Half-off (Again)

Call of Duty: Black Ops Hits the Mac Next Week, All Related CoD Games Half-off (Again)

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.

Minimum System Requirements:

2.4 GHz CPU Speed | 4 GB RAM | 15 GB free disk space | (ATI): Radeon HD 3870; (NVidia): GeForce 650M | 512 MB VRam

Supported Video cards:

NVIDIA GeForce 650M

ATI Radeon HD 3870, HD 4850, HD 5670, HD 5750, HD 5770, HD 5870, HD 6750M, HD 6770M, HD 6970M

    Nice. So assuming by what this article seems to suggest is that if i have already purchased a windows copy previously of black ops i would still have to purchase it again for Mac?

    Thanks for telling me about; getting mw1 right now.

    So what you’re saying is that I can play this on my Retina MacBook with 2.6GHz i7 and 8GB ram, since I have plenty of room on my 512GB SSD? Neat.

    *bragging ftw*
