Empire: Total War Gold Edition Coming To Macs This Spring
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Feral Interactive today announced a spring release for Empire: Total War Gold Edition, developed by The Creative Assembly and published by SEGA for Windows. The Mac version includes Empire: Total War, the Warpath Campaign DLC, The four Special Forces Units and Elite Units DLC packs, as well as all the updates and improvements.

“Empire: Total War Gold Edition draws on rich historical source material to create a game with vast scope and astonishing depth,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive

Empire: Total War Gold Edition places the series’ prized elements of real-time tactics and turn-based strategy against the turbulent backdrop of the 18th century. Exploring grand themes such as the Industrial Revolution, America's struggle for independence, the race to control Asian trade routes, and the globalization of war on land and sea, the game charges players with the fortunes of a nation and challenges them to establish it as the world’s dominant power.

Players command entire fleets in real-time naval combat amid dynamic water and weather effects, where mastery of their vessels makes the difference between glorious victory and humiliating defeat. Ground warfare has also changed, with the arrival of gunpowder, muskets and accurate artillery. To triumph in this radically different environment, players must learn new formations and master new tactics. 

The Mac version of Empire: Total War Gold Edition comprises the base game Empire: Total War and all the game updates, improvements and downloadable content, including The Warpath Campaign, where players take command of one of five new Native American factions, defending their lands from invaders. It also includes four unit packs, the Special Forces Units and the Elite Units of the East, West and America.

Diablo III Twitter Q&A Transcript
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In a recent Twitter Q&A Diablo IIIBlizzard Entertainment's upcoming action RPG. This time the discussion covered a variety of topics including chat channels, the removal of identification scrolls, and early digital download options.

Kultbot: So chat channels are still part of the game?

Bashiok: They’re in there right now. Unless people are expecting general open channels? We’ve consistently said we won’t have those.

CaptRaven: could you elaborate a bit more on why exactly Blizzard thinks that a general open chat channel like in D2 or SC1 is a bad idea?

Bashiok: The good is minuscule compared to the bad, and we have to actually support these things

WilliamCairns1: With you taking out the scrolls do you have any plans to put them back in maybe as like purchasable pet like in WoW maybe?

Bashiok: We didn’t remove them so we could charge people for them later, if that’s your question.

pliers1: Is there going to be a pre-release download, so people can start playing as soon as servers go up? Including people on annual pass.

Bashiok: We plan to have a digital download people can grab so they’re ready to go right at midnight.
