Mac gamers miffed at being left out of last month's multi-platform Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition release can quit sulking. Publisher 2K Games has announced a release date: 3rd December.

The special edition of Gearbox Software's OTT FPS boasts the original game plus all four DLC expansions: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.

To celebrate this great event, Gearbox big cheese Randy Pitchford made up some words.

"We are absolutely thrilled that Mac gamers will now be able to join in on the world of Pandora in Borderlands," he gushed.

"The best part is that every Mac gamer gets to experience the game plus all the ass-kicking add-on packs for Borderlands! They are getting the full complete package, and this is the best way to enjoy such an extravasplosive game like Borderlands."

We'll forgive him the hyperbole - Borderlands is indeed a bit good. Eurogamer's Jim Rossignol slapped an enthusiastic 8/10 on the post-apocalyptic shooter when it touched down on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 late last year.

RRP is £34.95 / €39.95 and the minimum system requirements work out as follows:

  • 1.8 GHz Intel Mac
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 128 MB or better graphics card
  • Mac OS X v10.6.4 or later

The following cards are NOT supported: ATI X1xxx series, NVIDIA 7xxx series and Intel GMA series.
