BioShock Infinite & SimCity Are Now Available For Your Mac



Clear your schedule for the weekend because you won’t want to leave the house. After a lengthy wait, BioShock Infinite and the new SimCity are now available for your Mac. You can download BioShock Infinite from the Mac App Store or from Steam, where it’ll cost you $39.99; while SimCity is available through EA’s Origin platform starting at $39.99.

But both titles can be downloaded for free if you already purchased them for PC.

BioShock Infinite has received heaps of critical acclaim since making its debut back in March, and it has already collected more than 80 awards. It’s safe to say that if you’re a fan of its predecessors, you’ll almost certainly have a terrific time with this title.

BioShock Infinite puts players in the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun Booker DeWitt. Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia.

Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.

You can download BioShock Infinite from the Mac App Store and from Steam now for $39.99 — or you can download it again through Steam for free if you already bought it for PC.

SimCity didn’t quite see the same successful launch BioShock Infinite did, with EA server problems making the game unplayable for thousands who bought it.

But it is a pretty awesome game now that those problems have been ironed out. You can purchase it through Origin, EA’s own platform, from $39.99 — depending on which version you go for. But again, if you have already purchased SimCity for PC, you can download the Mac release again for free — just log into Origin with the same details you used when you bought it.
