Macworld's Game Room has taken a first look at the upcoming Mac version of Quake 4. The latest in the Quake first person shooter series - soon to be released by Aspyr Media - Q4 details the exploits of Matthew Kane as he battles against the vicious Strogg. In addition to the single player storyline, the Mac version of the game will feature cross platform multiplayer support, up to 16 players, and a dedicated server allowing Mac users to host their own games.
The preview also mentions the game's performance on a Duo Core iMac.
Quake 4 is one of the first Universal games from Aspyr. My experience on a Duo Core iMac was good—I was able to run Quake 4 in high-quality graphics mode and 1024-by-768 resolution quite effectively. Quake 4’s minimum system requirements call for a 1.67GHz G4 or faster Mac with 512MB of RAM, and a Radeon 9600, GeForce 6600, or better 3D graphics chip with at least 64MB of RAM. When this game is closer to release I’ll revisit its performance on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs and give you a full battery of benchmarks.To read the entire preview click on the link below.
