Aspyr Media on Thursday announced that it is shipping Sid Meier’s Civilization III: Complete, an updated version of the popular strategy game series. The game is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB and costs $49.99.
This classic strategy game puts you in the role of a civilization’s leader, as you step your people through border expansion, the cultivation and conversion of food and raw materials into refined goods, uplift them through technological and social advancements, and take on diplomacy, trade and military action with (or against) your neighbors.
This is Civilization III’s second tour on the Macintosh platform. The game was previously ported and published for the Mac by MacSoft. When the rights reverted to Take-Two Interactive Software, Aspyr Media licensed the game, ported it again and has now published it.
What’s different about Aspyr’s Civilization III: Complete is that it bundles two expansion packs: Conquests, which provides additional challenges and new game modes, and Play the World, a multiplayer expansion pack. Aspyr is publishing Civilization III: Complete in preparation of releasing a Macintosh version of Civilization IV in 2006.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later, G4/500MHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 2.0GB hard disk space, 1024 x 768 resolution and DVD drive. Internet multiplayer is limited to Mac to Mac only, via the GameRanger service.
