GameRanger is the largest Internet multiplayer gaming service specifically for Mac users. It has over 100,000 registered members and with the addition of Heroes of Might & Magic IV now supports 110 Macintosh games — commercial, shareware and freeware alike. In recent weeks the service has added support for new releases like Aspyr Media’s Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Ghost Recon.
Developed originally on the PC by New World Computing, converted to the Mac by Contraband Entertainment, and published for both platforms by The 3DO Company, Heroes of Might & Magic IV is the latest installment of 3DO’s long-running strategy game series, in which players take control of massive armies vying for control of a fantasy world where magic and monsters are as real as steel and gold. You must battle enemies, capture territory, recover magical artifacts and harvest resources to win.
New to this version is a brand new graphical engine, dozens of new units, new classes of magic, and a map editor that provides terrain deformation capabilities. In addition to its multiplayer support, Heroes of Might & Magic IV also offers dozens of single-player missions.
The 3DO Company announced earlier this week that Heroes of Might & Magic IV was shipping to retailers, so look for it soon wherever Mac games are sold. You can also order it online directly from 3DO’s e-store.
