It’s not that often that the Mac gamers out there get to download new content for a big title game like BioShock Infinite on the same day as their Windows-using brethren, but here it is.

Well-known Mac gaming company Aspyr has done just that, announcing on Wednesday that the latest and final episode of BioShock Infinite’s story-driven “Burial At Sea” module has just dropped on the Mac.

“Closing the gap between the PC and Mac releases has been primary goal for Aspyr for many years now and [original developer] 2K has been a supportive partner in this effort,” said Michael Blair of Aspyr in an email to Cult of Mac.

That’s a huge feat, he said, as every single department on both the Mac and PC side must be in sync and ready to go. Aspyr is apparently getting really good at this, as they’ve shipped simultaneous releases for big hits Civilization V and Borderlands 2 recently, as well.

The new episode is set immediately after the end of the first episode of “Burial at Sea,” and you’ll now get to play as heroine Elizabeth as she travels through Rapture to rescue the Little Sister she abandoned. The DLC was developed by Irrational Games (before they were disbanded, apparently), who created both BioShock and BioShock Infinite.

The new DLC will contain new Achievements if that’s your thing, and will thematically tie the worlds of BioShock Infinite and the original BioShock into one compelling conclusion to the whole story.

You can purchase the base game of BioShock Infinite for $30 on the Steam store, $20 on the Mac App Store or for $15 at Aspyr’s own GameAgent portal.

“Burial at Sea – Episode Two” can be purchased for $15 on any of the three stores, as well.
