StarCraft II Mac beta client available for download

5:00 AM on 04.29.2010 // Nick Chester

Here's a story that's short and sweet if you're a Mac user: the Mac client for StarCraft II beta is now available for download. Blizzard promised it would be coming in April, and here it is, with only a few days left.

As a new Mac owner, I was thrilled when I logged into my Battle.net account to find that it was available. Only problem is that the download launcher, a six meg file called "Downloader" won't actually launch on my Macbook Pro running OS X 10.6.3. This, of course, makes me sad.

While my issue is not among the list of issues popping up on the Mac beta support forums, other gamers have reported performance issues when compared to running the Windows client under Boot Camp. Has anyone had any luck? Let us know!
