Bold, the Mac label of Destineer Studios, has announced the release date for a game many Mac users have been anticipating for quite some time: Links Championship Edition, the top-selling golf game. Bold said that Links Championship Edition would ship on July 26, 2002.
Links Championship Edition is a major overhaul to the popular and long-running Links series, which has appeared in Mac form before. New graphics, a new physics engine, and a course designer are all included, along with new golfer personalities and 13 versions of real-world golf courses, including Oakmont Country Club, the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, Frankfurter Golf Club and others.
Links Championship Edition works on Mac OS 9 or higher, including natively on Mac OS X. The game runs well on most Macs equipped with a G3/266MHz processor or faster and at least 64MB RAM, according to Destineer, although the company recommends having a 300MHz or faster system with at least 128MB if you plan to use the Arnold Palmer Course Designer.
This is the company’s second Mac publishing effort. The first Bold-labeled Mac game conversion, Age of Empires II: Gold Edition, was published late last year.
