Borderlands coming to the Mac

Feral Interactive has just announced that they are bringing Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition to the Mac sometime in early December.

Borderlands has eaten up most of my gaming time this year, and it’s one of the only video games, outside of NHL 2010, that I’ve returned to over the course of the year (sadly, on my Xbox 360). The first person shooter really redefined my expectations of what an FPS game could be in today’s world.

The Game of the Year Edition will include “four add-on packs, originally published separately as downloadable content,” according to Peter Cohen over at The Loop.

The gaming divide between Mac and Windows is closing up quicker than most would have expected it would over the last year. Now, if only some of these companies would start taking the Blizzard approach of releasing both a Mac and a Windows version at the same time, we would finally be on par with Windows gamers.

According to Cohen, the game is rated M and will require “Mac OS X 10.6.4 or later, 1.8GHz Intel processor, 1.0GB RAM, 10GB hard disk space, 128MB VRAM (ATI X1600, Nvidia 7xxx and Intel GMA graphics not supported), and DVD drive.”

Hopefully they offer a downloadable version, because my DVD drive just bit the dust.
