Q: Will any of the BioShock Infinite DLC content be available at launch for the Mac?
Yes! The Columbia’s Finest DLC Pack will be available at launch for the Mac on Steam for $4.99/€3.50/£2.99. This add-on content includes: 500 Silver Eagles (in-game currency), 5 Lock Picks to help you navigate through Columbia, six unique Gear items, and two weapon upgrades: Comstock’s China Broom Shotgun and Comstock’s Eagle Eye Sniper Rifle. And as noted above, users that pre-order BioShock Infinite for Mac from GameAgent will receive the Columbia’s Finest DLC Pack for free! This DLC content will be made available on the Mac App Store later this year.
Additionally, the recently announced Clash in the Clouds DLC will also be available at or near launch for the Mac on both Steam and the Mac App Store (additional info on Clash in the Clouds for Mac coming soon).
All BioShock Infinite Mac DLC purchased for the Steam version will also support Steam Play like the base game. Aspyr will be supporting any future DLC content as it becomes available, including both parts of the Burial at Sea campaign DLC.
Q: Will the BioShock Infinite Season Pass be available on the Mac?
Players will have the option to purchase the Season Pass on the Mac for the Steam version of BioShock Infinite only. Steam users can purchase the Season Pass from the Steam Store for $19.99/€19.99/£15.99. The Season Pass will give users access to three planned DLC packs, the first of which is the Clash in the Clouds DLC pack. The other two announced pieces of the Season Pass will be a two-part campaign DLC pack called Burial at Sea. The Columbia’s Finest DLC content is NOT part of the Season Pass.
Please note that some pieces of DLC included in the Season Pass may not be released on the Mac at the same time as the PC. Aspyr will work to release all DLC as close to the PC release date as possible.
The Season Pass is NOT available on the Mac App Store. Mac App players will have to purchase any DLC on an individual basis.
