Steam for Mac Release: Download Today

By Peter Chubb - May 12, 2010

For those of you who use a Mac, then you will be pleased to know that the release of Steam for Mac is now available for download today. Valve have promised this full version for some time now, so it is great to finally see the software come out of beta.

We do warn that there will not be much choice in the way of games at first, so you will just have to watch Windows users in envy for the time being. However, SoftSailer does inform us that Football Manager 2010, Portal and Torchlight is already available to download.

There does not seem to be many differences between the Mac and Windows version – this means that downloading, installing then playing the game will be very easy. Other games are available too, these include: Team Fortress 2, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and many more.

According to Digital Spy, ‘Steam Play’ will allow PC games to be played on your Mac upon release, this is certainly a great feature – we just hope that more titles become available soon. We recently learned that a version for Linux will follow soon.

    Try it again everyone, I just downloaded Portal and currently it's loading for the 1st time. And the best part is it's free. It is the only game available right now, BUT it's a start and I am not complaining.

    It’s up all. and I believe Portal is free for a little while. Game on gamers!!!

    Yeah. I noticed the same thing. Valve's site does not appear to have been updated. Maybe they are on Pacific time and will be running in a few more minutes?

    Nothing posted on there website as of yet. This better not be a joke!

  • Crunc

    Ditto. I can't find it on their website. All I can find is the beta page, and that is closed. Maybe later today??

  • There doesn't seem to be a download for Steam (Mac) on their website, and neither does it say that its released anywhere. I had read about a week ago that it was due today, I guess not?
