'DeathSpank' To Go On Sale For PC And Mac


On the heels of the new "DeathSpank" sequel's release for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, EA has opted to break the original game out for PC and Mac users as well. Pre-orders will be taken and come with a 10% discount over Steam, and even more discounting will be made available if you buy it bundled with "Shank."

"Bringing the game to PC and Mac was a direct response to the repeated requests by our fans and we are thrilled that 'DeathSpank' has become so popular and such a phenomenon, ensuring that we can fulfill those requests," Hothead Games director of game development Vlad Ceraldi said in a press release. "The humor, story and core gameplay elements in 'DeathSpank' were all inspired by some of our favorite PC games."

Without any discounts, the game will cost you $15, which is the going rate for a "DeathSpank" game on consoles these days already.

If you're a PC or Mac user and Ron Gilbert's humor in "The Secret of Monkey Island" was the kind of thing that really left you slapping your knees after an evening at the computer screen, you may want to ponder a Steam purchase. Brad had good things to say about "DeathSpank" as an RPG, too, so if that's a genre you enjoy, give it a glance and let us know what you think.
