Call Of Duty: Black Ops Gets September 27 Debut For Mac, Costs 50 Bucks

In more curious COD news today, developer Aspyr has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops will finally be ready for Mac on September 27th, available on Steam and other digital stores. Huh.

For those counting, that’s a two-year wait for a game already available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Moreover, the price is a princely $50, despite the long time it apparently took to port the game for Mac’s OS X:

Call of Duty: Black Ops Mac will retail for $49.99 and will include the First Strike Content Pack at no extra cost. The First Strike content pack includes 4 new multiplayer maps as well as an exciting zombie experience, complete with its own multiplayer map. The game is currently available for pre-order at GameAgent.com.

In addition to Call of Duty: Black Ops, the Rezurrection Content Pack will also be available for purchase at launch for $14.99. This content pack will be available through the same retail outlets as the game and as an in-app purchase for those that buy the game from the Mac App Store. The other two Black Ops Content Packs, Escalation and Annihilation, will be available on the Mac later this year as a bundle.

Black Ops will also be available in the Mac App Store that week, but the real question is how well it’ll actually sell.

Whatever the case, it must be profitable enough for Activision to fund the development so late in the game’s lifecycle. At that rate, Mac users will most likely get to enjoy Call of Duty: Black Ops II sometime around 2014 or 2015.
