Aspyr posts MTX demo, ships Athena Sword

Aspyr Media Inc. has posted a playable demo version of their motocross racing and stunt game MTX: Mototrax. What's more, the company has announced that it's shipping Rainbow Six 3: Athena Sword, an add-on pack to its game Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield.

MTX: Mototrax is a conversion of a pre-existing console title that Aspyr has published for the Mac and PC. The game puts you behind the handlebars of real-world off-road motorcycles as you race for cash and sponsorships. Build your standing and you'll get more, upgrade your equipment, and race bigger and better bikes. You can race motocross and supercross tracks, and perform stunts in a special freestyle arena. You can also go head-to-head and create your own tracks. The 128MB demo version of MTX: Mototrax lets you try the McKenna Rock outdoor racing track against seven other computer-controlled players. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, a G4/1GHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 1.4GB free hard disk space and an ATI Radeon 7500 or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or faster 3D graphics system with at least 32MB VRAM.

Rainbow Six 3: Athena Sword continues the action of the original Raven Shield game. You head an elite counterterrorist squad against a group that's determined to cause global strife. The expansion pack, which requires the original game to play, incldues a new eight-mission campain, five new multiplayer levels, seven new weapons and three "bonus classic missions" from earlier Rainbow Six games, updated with new graphics and technology. Rainbow Six 3: Athena Sword costs US$29.99. System requirements include G3/733MHz or faster, Mac OS X v10.2.8, 256MB RAM, 3.2GB hard disk space and 32MB VRAM.
