According to the Aspyr Media project status page, the upcoming Vietnam-based first person shooter Men Of Valor won't be making it into Christmas stockings this holiday season - the game's estimated release date has been pushed to February.
Created by 2015, the team responsible for the award-winning Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault, the new shooter put players deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia during between 1965 and 1968. While the multiplayer side of the game allows players to play either as U.S. soldiers or Viet Cong guerillas, the single player campaigns focus their attention on U.S. Marine Dean Shepard. and his struggle for survival from the early stages of the police action through to the Tet Offensive.
In an effort to get the Mac port of the Unreal engine-based title completed as quickly as possible, programmer Ryan Gordon has been working closely with Vivendi Universal, publishers of the PC and Xbox versions of the game. We contacted Aspyr's Glenda Adams, director of the company's internal development team, who filled us in on the reason for the delay -
The delay was for technical reasons- it's just taken our developer a lot of work to get it up and running on the Mac, since it uses a lot of advanced shader code and pushes the hardware pretty hard. It is just going to take us a couple extra months to get everything over and working on the Mac.Until the game's release, readers wanting to get a taste of the action should head over to Apple's Game Trailers web pages, where a new trailer for the upcoming title is being hosted. The 11 MB movie features extensive in-game footage, giving viewers a taste of the carnage to come:
