Aspyr Media Inc. on Tuesday announced that its Macintosh conversion of
True Crime: Streets of L.A.
has reached its Beta development milestone. The game is on track to be released in February, 2005, although Aspyr is now accepting pre-orders for $50.
True Crime puts you in the role of Nick Kang, a cop with a troubled past who has to infiltrate the seedy underground of L.A. thug life. It’s your job to get to the bottom of a vast criminal conspiracy by using any means necessary, and typically, the more violent the better. Of course, the game was rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB.
True Crime: Streets of L.A. was originally published for the PC by Activision and was developed by Luxoflux. The Macintosh conversion of True Crime is being handled by independent conversion developer Trihedron, with whom Aspyr has collaborated previously on the Macintosh conversion of Space Colony.
Preliminary system requirements for True Crime: Streets of L.A. call for Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, G4/867MHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 2GB hard disk space, ATI Radeon 8500 or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or better 3D graphics with at least 32MB VRAM and a DVD drive. Multiplayer requirements will allow Mac-to-Mac play only, with GameRanger support.
