On Friday Aspyr Media Inc. noted that its Mac conversion of the World War II-era first person action game Call of Duty has gone gold master, the final step before a game goes to duplication. The company expects to begin shipping Call of Duty in May; they said to expect copies on store shelves nationwide by May 14.
Call of Duty recalls World War II from the perspective of American, British and Russian soldiers as you lead a series of four interconnected campaigns. The game also features multiplayer modes. It was created by Infinity Ward, some of the same creative team that developed another World War II FPS, Medal of Honor. The game was published for the PC by Activision and has been converted to the Mac by Aspyr Studios, Aspyr’s internal development team.
Rated T for Teen by the ESRB, Call of Duty is still available for pre-order from Aspyr’s Web site for about $50. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, G4/867MHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 1.4GB hard disk space, ATI Radeon 7500 or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or better graphics with at least 32MB VRAM, and DVD drive.
