As promised, Valve has released Counter-Strike: Source for Mac via its digital distribution platform Steam alongside that hefty update for the PC version it's been testing.

In commemoration of Mac owners getting the game and PC owners getting the update, Valve has briefly discounted the multiplayer shooter by 66%, making it $6.80.

As with Valve's other Steam for Mac releases, those that already own the game on Steam for PC will be able to download a free copy of the Mac version, with those that buy the game getting both versions for the price of one. Additionally, Counter-Strike: Source supports cross-platform play, enabling PC and Mac gamers to play together.

CS:S will follow in the footsteps of the Mac release of Team Fortress 2 in allowing Mac and Windows players to shoot each other's faces on the same servers.

Valve launched Steam for Mac and the Mac version of its Source Engine in May with Portal, followed by a flood of third-party games, Half-Life 2 and TF2.
