Blizzard working on StarCraft II Mac beta

StarCraft II Mac beta coming in April...

While select PC gamers have been able to enjoy the StarCraft II beta for a few weeks now, Blizzard will soon be letting Mac owners in on the fun, revealing that a beta for that platform is in the works, with a projected April start.

It seems as though the term 'Mac gamer' may soon cease to be an oxymoron. Last week, Valve revealed that its Steam service would be coming to Apple's line of computers, bringing many of the PC's top titles to the gaming-light platform. This weekend, a chat with StarCraft II developers seemed to indicate that Mac owners may soon have access to the holiest of PC gaming experiences--the closed beta.

In a Twitter-based Q&A held with its fans, the official StarCraft account received a question about the status of a Mac beta, to which Blizzard replied "We are currently working on a Mac version of the beta and hope to release it sometime in April. Hang in there!!" While the game is currently planned for release on both PC and Mac platforms, only PC owners have been able to take part in the game's beta, which began a month ago.

Mac owners, are you considering picking up StarCraft II when it comes out? Will you try part in the beta?

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
