Duke Nukem Forever coming to the Mac in August

One of the most talked about games of 2011, Duke Nukem Forever, will be heading to the Apple's Macintosh platform later this summer. Today publisher Aspyr Media announced that the long awaited first person shooter will be ported over to the Mac and will be released by them sometime this August. In a post on the Aspyr Media owned Game Agent web site, it states that pre-orders for the Mac version would get a 10 percent discount along with free shipping.

The Mac version will also be made available to download via Valve's Steam service. Aspyr has already confirmed that the game will include Steamworks support for things like achievements, multiplayer leaderboards and more. It will also support Steam Play which means if you already own the PC version of the game you will get the Mac version for free and vise versa. There's no word yet if the game will allow for some cross-platform multiplayer between the PC and Mac ports.

The game, after 15 years of development, was finally released earlier this month by publisher 2K Games. Despite generally poor reviews the game sold well, at least during its first week. While it was the top selling game on the Steam download service during its first week on June 14 it has since dropped out of the top 10. In a recent interview,  Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of 2K Games' parent company Take Two Interactive, stated that " ... you will see future Duke IP coming from this company."
