"BioShock Infinite is North America's best-selling multiplatform game so far this year, and we are delighted to now offer it to Mac users everywhere."

Set in 1912, players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt. 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.
BioShock Infinite for Mac is available on both Steam and the Mac App Store. Furthermore, Mac users may purchase online game codes for the Steam version of BioShock Infinite from their participating Mac game retailer of choice, including Aspyr's own GameAgent.com, where users can easily and quickly test whether their Mac meets the game's minimum system requirements by using GameAgent's Mac Match feature.
