DeathSpank heads to PC, Mac

Monkey Island man Ron Gilbert‘s latest, DeathSpank, is headed to PC and Mac, publisher EA’s announced. In that order.

The PC game will be released later this month, on October 26, for $14.99. Those who pre-order via Steam can count on a 10% discount as well (or 15% should they go for the Shank and ‘Spank Bundle instead).

Availability on Mac OSX will be announced at a later time.

The game’s release on systems other than PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 was a result of “repeated requests by our fans,” says developer Hothead Games’ Director of Game Development Vlad Ceraldi. “We are thrilled that DeathSpank has become so popular and such a phenomenon, ensuring that we can fulfill those requests.”

There is a distinct advantage to being a DeathSpank fan on consoles though; sequel DeathSpank Thongs of Virtue has been available for the Sony and Microsoft systems since last month.
