Aspyr Media has posted details to its Web page about its forthcoming plans to publish two new games that will appeal to military action game junkies: Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield. News of the Mac ports came to light during a recent chat session sponsored by Inside Mac Games.
Billed as “stealth action redefined,” Splinter Cell puts you in the role of Sam Fisher, a U.S. military operative sent into situations that require covert stealth and skill. Raven Shield, meanwhile, is the latest installment of the popular Rainbow Six series, in which you command an elite squad of counterterrorist operatives on a series of missions against a hidden terrorist foe.
As the name implies, both games use characters and situations inspired by thriller author (and noted Mac user) Tom Clancy’s works. Both games have already been published for PCs and console systems by Ubi Soft Entertainment.
Both games have identical system requirements: Mac OS X v10.2 or later; a G4/733MHz or faster; 256MB RAM; 1.7GB hard disk space; ATI Radeon or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or better video card with at least 32MB VRAM.
Aspyr notes that both games have reached their First Playable development milestone, and anticipates releasing them in December, 2003.
