Steam for Mac Now Available, 50 Launch Titles [UPDATE: It’s Live]

Steam is finally out of beta and officially available for Mac users. To download Steam for Mac, you just have to go here, open the app and login with your account to start buying games to play on your Mac or PC. It doesn’t require any workaround to work, as the app has just been updated and the service is active for everyone.

UPDATE: Steam for Mac is finally live and Mac games are available in the desktop client.


The details of the rollout of Steam for Mac were announced yesterday in a press release by Valve, and now we can confirm that Torchlight, Portal, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Loom, and The Dig from LucasArts are among the games available for Mac today.

As we saw in the beta some weeks ago and in some recent videos, Steam for Mac doesn’t come with an actual “native” interface on Mac OS X, as Valve clearly preferred to keep the look of its platform unified across all the operating systems it’s available. So if you were hoping for a complete graphic refresh, I’m sorry but Valve didn’t do anything about it.
