As promised, Destineer subsidiary MacSoft has unveiled its
new Web site
and new URL, Macsoftgames.com. There may be a few surprises for gamers who drop by the site, too.
|<?php virtual(“/includes/boxad.inc”); ?>
The new site is an amalgam of content culled from Destineer’s own Mac game publishing efforts (under its Bold label, which has been subsumed by MacSoft) and MacSoft games forthcoming and already available. Information about Stronghold, Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings and Links Championship Edition is posted, for example — three games already in distribution.
MacSoft’s new Web site is more than just rehashed content with a pretty new face, however — you can also get information on new titles, like Master of Orion 3, expected to hit store shelves on the 25th. Dungeon Siege info is available too — that game is now in final testing.
But there are a couple of surprises, as well. Long acknowledged (and even advertised in a full-page spread in the current issue of Macworld magazine) as a MacSoft game but never officially announced, the Mac conversion of Unreal Tournament 2003 finally gets its own Web page. MacSoft isn’t yet committing to a specific release date or to system requirements, but their Web page says that Unreal Tournament 2003 will make its Mac debut this Spring.
And it appears that MacSoft will also be publishing Civilization III Game of the Year Edition — a new version of Sid Meier’s legendary strategy game that bundles Civilization III together with its recently released OS X-only editor, a strategy guide, and a “Making of” video. That’s coming April 9, 2003, according to the Web site.
Expect more updated information as well, for forthcoming MacSoft titles like Neverwinter Nights (still in development at Bioware) and Halo — plus whatever new, unannounced titles MacSoft may have up its sleeve for the year to come.
