Aspyr Media Inc. on Friday confirmed that its Macintosh conversion of the new Call of Duty expansion pack, United Offensive, has reached its beta development milestone. The expansion pack is due out in November. Its PC counterpart just debuted in September.
United Offensive returns players to World War II, where they’ll get a chance to play as American, British and Russian soldiers taking on the Nazi menace in the European theater of war. The expansion pack adds 13 new single-player missions on to Call of Duty, with 11 new multiplayer maps and three new modes, the ability to command tanks, jeeps, motorcycles and bombers, more realistic weather conditions, new weapons like flamethrowers, deployable machine guns and artillery strikes and more. United Offensive recreates historic battles like the Battle of the Bulge, the Battle of Kursk and more.
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 3D graphics with at least 32MB VRAM, and DVD drive. United Offensive, which requires the original Call of Duty to play, can be pre-ordered for US$29.99.
