Mac Soldier of Fortune Update
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Earlier in the year, the German company Hyperion Software announced they were bringing Raven's gritty FPS Soldier of Fortune to the Mac. Since they originally said it was to be out before the end of the year, we decided to check up on them and see how things were going. Apparently, they're going to hold off a bit to avoid some of the Holiday competition, but their promises of other surprises towards the end of 2000 are tantalizing. Here's Hyperion's Ben Hermans with the scoop:

We don't think SOF will hit the market before the end of the year because it
seems everybody is cramming their top-titles in the last quarter.


This is nothing new of course but this year it appears to me more pronounced
than before.


We therefore think we don't want to join the melee and think it's best to
reschedule for late January or February 2001.


On the other hand we do expect some surprise announcements which we might
possibly squeeze in to the last quarter of 2000. Stay tuned!

A slight delay on Soldier of Fortune isn't a huge deal, as only a couple months will give us time to get through the games left by Santa. For more info on the SoF, head on over to Raven's web site.


Hyperion is also trying to get the Lithtech-based Shogo out soon. Check out the demo at Macgamefiles if you haven't tried it already.
