    Aspyr today announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops III is now available on Mac, complete with 64-bit and Metal support.

    The same Black Ops III content for Windows is now available on Mac via the Steam store:Call of Duty: Black Ops III Multiplayer Starter Pack ($14.99): includes a multiplayer-only version of the game that has limited content.
    Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles Edition ($59.99): includes the full base game and the Zombies Chronicles content expansion with eight classic, fully-remastered Zombies maps.
    Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Deluxe Edition ($99.99): includes the full base game, Season Pass, and the Zombies Chronicles content expansion.Black Ops III is already an older title in the popular first-person shooter franchise, first released in November 2015 for Xbox, PlayStation, and Windows. Three new Call of Duty games have launched since then, including Infinite Warfare in 2016, WWII in 2017, and Black Ops IIII last year.

    System requirements include macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 or later, a 2.3GHz quad-core Core i5 processor or better, 8GB or RAM or more, at least 150GB of storage space, and a graphics card with at least 2GB of VRAM. Steam says Nvidia and Intel GPUs are not officially supported hardware for Black Ops III.

    At the time of writing, we're not seeing the Multiplayer Starter Pack available for Mac, so the complete rollout may take a bit of time today.

    Cool that it came, but Bootcamp — along with a probably better running version — has been out for years now

    Those are ridiculous prices for a game that’s been out for years

    The price of the game is nothing compared to what you’ll spend trying to store 150Gb on your computer

    Nvidia cards not supported. El oh el. What a joke. Apple needs to fix their spat they have with Nvidia and they need to do it now.

    Oh yeah that’s it and then Apple will charge customers even more. No thanks. Expensive Nvidia needs to go away.

    Just what I always wanted, to play a 4 year old game in a multiplayer world full of 10 year olds telling me they slept with my mom.

    150gb of storage space? It looks like Stadia is the future of gaming.

    Does modern games actually take up 150GB? What on earth takes up so much space? 4K cut scenes?

    I wish we could get a good driving game like Project Cars, F1 or Dirt 4. Those are more my speed.

    The 10 year olds are all playing Fortnite. Or maybe Apex Legends now. You should be good to play without being exposed to those 10 year olds.

    Yeah they do. Day 1 updates + Season Passes + other DLC. It gets pretty swollen.

    Dirt 4 is completely underrated. But I don’t for see something like this coming to the Mac unfortunately.

    How does Metal performance compare to the Windows version? Does it actually help make them similar in speed? I'm getting into more gaming on the Mac and in Bootcamp since getting my new iMac last week. Are there many other Metal powered games on Steam?

    I'd be surprised if there's anyone at all to play with, given the age of the title.
