Mac game publisher
announced today plans to publish BloodRayne for the Macintosh. That game is coming in March, according to Aspyr

Developed originally by Terminal Reality Inc. — makers of 4×4 Evolution and Fly! — and published for the console and PC by Majesco, BloodRayne is powered by Terminal Reality’s own homegrown Infernal Engine, and sports game play that will remind users a bit of Tomb Raider. It’s rendered in a third person, 3D perspective, chock full of hand-to-hand combat.
Set in the 1930s, BloodRayne revisits what should now be familiar ground to anyone who enjoyed Aspyr’s Return to Castle Wolfenstein: zombies and Nazis. This game takes quite a different perspective on that milieu, however, for BloodRayne herself is a ruby-haired dhampir — a creature that’s half vampire, half human. She possess unique strengths and abilities, including superhuman acrobatic skills, the ability to see in the dark, and a slow motion “blood rage” perspective, but she’s not without weaknesses either: she must feed on the blood of her foes to survive.
As you might have been able to tell from the subject matter, BloodRayne carries with it an “M” rating from the ESRB — for Mature audiences only, with blood and gore, strong violence, and adult language present. Aspyr anticipates delivering this game to Mac users this month with a suggested retail price of US$29.95.
While BloodRayne is already shipping for consoles, the PC version isn’t yet out, so this game’s Mac release ought to be pretty close to its Windows counterpart. In fact, if Aspyr’s target is accurate, Mac BloodRayne may even precede its PC counterpart, as PC game sources now project its release scheduled for April or May.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.2 or later; G4/733MHz or faster; 256MB RAM; 2GB hard drive space; and Radeon or GeForce2 MX graphics with 32MB of video RAM.
