Aspyr Media Inc. on Monday announced that its Macintosh conversion of
Command & Conquer Zero Hour has reached its gold master development milestone. Now that the game’s conversion is done, Mac gamers can expect to see it ship on Monday, Feb. 21, according to Aspyr.
Command & Conquer Zero Hour is an expansion pack for last year’s release of Command & Conquer Generals, a real-time strategy game also brought to the Mac by Aspyr. In this near-future vision, control of the world is largely split up between the technologically advanced United States, the modern and massive army of China, and the Global Liberation Army, which uses bioterrorism, sabotage and suicide bombings to carry out its plans. Zero Hour adds 30 new units, new structures and 20 new upgrades to the game, and a new play mode called Challenge Mode. Fifteen new missions will challenge your skills as well as you carry out operations in the Mediterranean, Egypt and elsewhere.
System requirements include the full version of Command & Conquer Generals, Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, G4/1GHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 1.6GB free hard drive space, ATI Radeon 7500 or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or better with at least 32MB VRAM and a DVD drive. Internet play is Mac to Mac only, and GameRanger is supported. Zero Hour is available for pre-order for US$29.99.
