Portal 2 for Mac is Out Now!
Portal 2 for Mac is out, the game is a unique puzzle-shooter blend that is unlike nearly any other game on the market. The game includes single player and a new multiplayer cooperative mode that requires two players to work together in unique ways.
Valve describes Portal 2 as follows:
Portal 2 draws from the award-winning formula of innovative gameplay, story, and music that earned the original Portal over 70 industry accolades and created a cult following.
The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game.
Portal 2 Mac System Requirements
The better your computer, the better the game will run. Here are the minimum specs:
- Mac OS X 10.6.7 or higher
- Intel Core Duo 2GHz or better
- 2GB of RAM or greater
- 7.6GB of available disk space
- ATI Radeon 2400 / NVIDIA 8600M / Intel HD 3000 – or higher
System requirements are great and all, but if you’re like me you want to see just how well Portal 2 runs on a Mac. Check out the video below which shows a MacBook Pro 15″ Core i7 running the game in Mac OS X 10.6.7 on highest settings, it looks amazing and sustains 60 FPS:
The other cool thing about the Portal 2 announcement is that the Mac version was released alongside its Windows, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 brothers, suggesting the Mac platform is being taken more and more seriously by game developers.
