Aspyr Media Inc. noted on Monday that its forthcoming Macintosh conversion of the hit first-person shooter
Call of Duty
has its Beta development milestone. The game is expected to hit store shelves in May.
Developed by Infinity Ward Inc., Call of Duty is a World War II-era FPS action game that puts you in the role of American, English and Russian soldiers on different assaults on Nazi forces. Spread over 24 different missions running through four interconnected campaigns, you’ll experience different elements of World War II action. Call of Duty also features multiplayer action on the Internet or over Local Area Networks (LANs).
WW2-era action games have been popular of late, and Call of Duty has impeccable credentials. The company that developed the game, Infinity Ward, comprises the same creative team that also made Medal of Honor, another hit WW2-era FPS that Aspyr Media brought to the Macintosh. The game’s Macintosh conversion is being handled in-house by Aspyr Media itself.
Rated T for Teen by the ESRB, Call of Duty is available for pre-order from Aspyr Media for about $50. Preliminary system requirements will call for Mac OS X v10.2.8, G4/867MHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 1.4GB free HD space, ATI Radeon 7500 or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or better 3D graphics support with at least 32MB of VRAM, and a DVD drive to both install and play the game.
