Steam For Mac Will Arrive On May 12th



Want to know when you’ll be sliding through the orange hued inkwell of a counter-gravitational portal on your Mac? Eager to know the date when you can start the fight against the insidious Combine under OS X? Fanatic about headshotting bile-spitting zombie after zombie within the safehouse of Snow Leopard? Keen to whack a bald, minigun-toting fat man in the back of the head with a baseball bat while cracking wise to him in a Brooklyn accent?

Sure you are, and when Valve gets around to releasing Steam for Mac, you can do just that through native Source-engine ports of games like Left 4 Dead, Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2 and Portal just by downloading them through their games delivery service. And just when are they planning on releasing Steam for Mac to good gamers across the world? We now have a date: May 12th.

Keep in mind you’ll need to be on an Intel iMac with a discrete GPU running OS X 10.5 or higher… but either way, this is a date to look forward to. Mac gamers are finally going to be given their due… and the Source engine games on Steam for Mac should be just for starters. Who’s up for a Cult of Mac Team Fortress 2 night come May 12th?
