Electronic Entertainment Expo
(E3) in Los Angeles, Calif. brings out the biggest names in gaming each year, including Apple. The company is once again showing off games running on Macs at a meeting area located in the gargantuan Los Angeles Convention Center’s West Hall.
Attendees are welcome to walk in and play games on the nine Power Mac G5s equipped with Apple Cinema Displays, as well as a pair of 20-inch iMacs. A steady flow of visitors have watched game trailers and partaken of some network gameplay with Unreal Tournament 2004, Halo, Call of Duty and Command and Conquer: Generals. Battlefield 1942 is also being shown. Other games are also on display, including MacPlay’s Tron 2.0, Feral Interactive’s XIII, Medal of Honor: Breakthrough, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down and several kids’ titles, including a new Blue’s Clues game coming from MacSoft.
In addition, Apple is showing off a trailer and interactive demo of Myst IV Revelation, the latest installment of the landmark graphical adventure game franchise. The demo includes a short trailer and several interactive camera screens that show how the game will look when it’s released this fall, for Mac and PC.
