6:00 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media's project status web page has been updated with news that the Mac port of the Secret Weapons of WWII expansion pack for Digital Illusions' extremely popular online shooter Battlefield 1942 is at Final Candidate, and is one step closer to being in avid gamers' hands.

Secret Weapons of WWII brings a large new arsenal of experimental weaponry, straight from the research laboratories of both Axis and Allied forces, to the highly-regarded first person shooter -

  • Horton HO 229 "Flying Wing"
  • Sherman tank with a T-34 Calliope rocket launcher
  • T95/T28 Super Heavy Tank
  • The Sturmtiger - featuring a naval gun mounted atop a Tiger tank
  • The American AW-52 advanced fighter
  • The Wasserfall guided anti-air missile
  • The Natter rocket plane
  • Top secret German prototype Rocket Pack - fly and fight at the same time
  • Seven new weapons include throwable one-shot-kill knives, the Bren light machine gun, the Auto 5 shotgun, and the Mauser K98 grenade rifle
  • The new expansion pack also includes new objective-based gameplay modes, new British and German troops, new locations, and eight new WWII campaigns in which to wield the title's new weaponry.

    The new expansion pack is currently expected to ship by late October, and will require a full version of Battlefield 1942 to play. Readers can pre-order their very own copy of the title for $29.95 USD at the IMG Store:
