Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition Strikes
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Feral Interactive has announced the release of the innovative stealth-action game Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition, which challenges players to perform assassinations in creative ways. Developed by Io-Interactive and published by Square Enix for PC and consoles, Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition brings Hitmanís charismatic Agent 47 to the Mac platform for the first time.

Agent 47, a genetically-engineered contract killer, has taken on a very personal assignment: protecting a vulnerable girl with whom he shares an unhappy connection. Hunted by the police, marked for death by his former employers and locked in conflict with a ruthless arms dealer, 47 must use his enhanced instincts and deadly skills to eliminate his enemies and save the girl.

As Agent 47, players will become the ultimate assassin as they master superhuman reflexes, creative stealth techniques and a powerful arsenal of weapons to pull off both clean kills and dramatic executions. While using disguises and distractions to remain undetected, resourceful players can exploit environmental hazards to pull off imaginative hits that make deaths look like accidents.

All previously released additional content will be included in Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition, including Hitman: Sniper Challenge. In this standalone mission, players engineer a long-range hit, using only their sharp-shooting abilities to pull off audacious kills and cover their tracks.

Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition also includes 'Contracts', a mission-creation mode where players can roam the story mode levels, assassinate targets of their choice by any means possible, then challenge other players to do the same by sharing the contracts online.

Minimum system requirements call for a 2.0GHz Intel Mac with at least 4.0GB RAM, 512MB or better graphics card, and Mac OS 10.9.2 or later. The game requires ATI 4850 series graphics card or better, an Intel HD4000 series card or better or an NVIDIA 600 series card or better. The Intel HD4000 requires 8GB of system RAM.

Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition for the Mac retails in North America for US $28.99, £19.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and Ä25.99 (inc.VAT) throughout Europe.

Positech Brings Extremism To Democracy 3
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Positech Games recently announced the release of Democracy 3: Extremism. The add-on for the turn-based political strategy game adds new dilemmas and policies for Democracy 3, the latest in the series which simulates the motivations, loyalties, and desires of an entire country, challenging the player to run a nation while managing voter opinion.

This expansion for Democracy 3 adds 33 new situations and policies that reflect the more extreme side of politics, all within the framework of a democracy. Fed up with just adjusting taxes and government spending in the conventional sense? Perhaps you think your people need the national anthem sung at the start of every news broadcast? or maybe what they are crying out for is a ban on divorce, or same-sex relationships? Alternatively you might like to close your countries airports to save the environment, or maybe outright ban private education? How far to the extremes can you take your country and still maintain the support of the people (and avoid some of them putting a gun to your head). Democracy 3:Extremism, for when fiddling with tax rates simply isn't enough!


  • Mac OS X 10.6 or later
  • 2 GHz Intel Mac
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 500 MB HD Space
  • 256 MB VRAM
