Gears of War coming to… the MAC?!

Gears of War for MacIn a recent video posted to Gametrailers, Epic VP Mark Rein stated that both Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3 will be coming to a Mac near you.

The announcement, which must have come as a surprise to everyone on the planet, comes in around the halfway point of the video with Rein happily saying "Yes, Gears is coming to the Mac and so is UT".

For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past few months, Gears of War was the smash hit for Xbox 360. The PC version was announced a few weeks ago with the promise of new maps, a map editor, and additional campaign chapters.

Being a Mac user myself, this is certainly a welcomed addition to the rather lacking gaming library, however it’s not without its questions.

The main question to be answered is how will the performance be? Most Macs run games under OpenGL where PC games run under DirectX and having tested a few multiplatform games myself (namely World of Warcraft), the games run better under Windows than OS X.

I’m looking forward to see how Epic Games implements the Unreal 3 engine on the Mac.
