Sin, FAKK2 Go Gold!
10:12 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
The golden colors of Fall have come soon for Mac gamers, as two more highly-anticipated titles have reached their final version and await duplication. Contraband Entertainment has reported that Sin and Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2 have 'gone gold.'
Here is the (characteristically brief and to the point) news from the Contraband web site:
Contraband Entertainment, Inc. is proud to announce that SIN has gone GOLD.This news comes as a minor surprise, as a report on MacNN last night seemed to suggest that Sin had some 'show-stopping' bugs that would delay its release.
We are also proud to announce that Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. II is presently in duplication, and too be hitting store shelves soon.
The suggestion that these two titles are final is excellent news for Mac Gamers, as these two games provide a big kickoff for the Fall gaming season. The first-person shooter Sin is a port of a 2-year-old PC title from Ritual. The launch of that game on the PC side was marred by bugs and eclipsed by the release of Half-Life, but Mac gamers should be able to experience the game in a more refined form and without intense competition from other titles. Based on the Quake 2 engine, Sin should run on almost any OpenGL-capable hardware. For more information on this title be sure and read our detailed preview.
The intense Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2 is a third-person action game based on the Quake 3 Arena engine. Praised tremendously for its visuals as well as innovative gameplay, this game shatters the concept that third-person games can't have serious mayhem and action. While this game isn't for the kids or the squeamish -- take the Mature rating seriously -- it does have action to spare, and many puzzle/adventure elements as well. Again, for more details be sure and read our preview.
F.A.K.K. 2 Preview
Congratulations to Contraband on shipping their first Mac titles. Sin will be published by United Developers, and Heavy Metal will reach stores with Gathering of Developers' brand. Watch for them at a store near you!
