Steam for Mac gets a release date

Gerald Lynch Gaming, Software, Tech Digest news 4 Comments

There’s not long to wait now before Mac gamers get their hands on the Steam gaming platform. After missing its April launch date, the popular game library and download software will now be hitting Apple’s machines on the 12th May.

So far only a few lucky beta testers have got stuck into Valve‘s service, which allows games such as the Half Life series and the upcoming Portal 2 to be downloaded to an account and moved to multiple machines. But in just under a fortnight’s time it’ll be released to the Mac gaming community at large.

It could be the start of a renaissance for Mac gaming. Steam is a popular format among gamers and a lucrative one for developers. It could see the Mac gaming market pick up speed, after losing lots of momentum for many years now.
