Feral Interactive today released the genetically enhanced role-playing shooter, BioShock 2, for the Mac. Developed by 2K Marin, 2K Australia, 2K China and Digital Extremes, and published by 2K Games for games consoles and PC, BioShock 2 is a sequel to the legendary BioShock.
As well as the main game, the Mac edition of BioShock 2 also contains an entirely separate multiplayer game, The Fall of Rapture. Players take on the role of mutated test subjects for the opportunistic plasmid manufacturer Sinclair Solutions, and engage in the civil war that tore Rapture apart.

It is available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including Feral’s official website and the Mac App Store.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
