Borderlands 2 Now at The Mac App Store, And 25% Off for the Holidays


We're guessing that's Pyro Pete from the new Mr. Torque's Campaign of Carnage DLC.

Borderlands 2 from Aspyr is now available to download at the Mac App Store, almost exactly a month after it debuted on Steam — and there’s good news and bad news.

Steam is great, but it’s nice to see a game show up at the Mac App Store — especially if that game is the most anticipated Mac release of the year (or second-most anticipated, if you count Call of Duty: Black Ops).

Unfortunately, for now the App Store version of the game is without the franchise’s signature co-op multiplayer mode (it’s already available with the Steam version). Aspyr says you’ll have to wait till an update early next year before the multiplayer gets added.

In the meantime, besides slashing the price 25 percent (to $45), they’ve tried to make the App Store version a little more enticing with the addition of an exclusive pack of character skins and heads.

If you’ve already snagged Borderlands 2 on Steam, the new DLC, Mr. Torque’s Campaign of Carnage, has just popped up on Steam for $10
