Aspyr: CoD2 Alpha, Civ4 First Playable, Q4 GM
8:32 AM | Andy Largent | 13 comments

Aspyr Media has updated the project status page for a number of their in-progress game titles. Fans will be excited to know that Call of Duty 2 and Civilization IV have moved out of early development and are now in alpha and first playable stages, respectively.

Both of these titles are too early still in development to know their exact system requirements. Brad Oliver has commented some on the development of Civilization IV in his blog, concerning coding practices and middleware for the game, so give that a read if you're seeking more information.

Additionally, Quake IV and The Sims 2: Nightlife are now considered Gold Master and should be shipping soon. While Nightlife will need much the same requirements as the original Sims 2, Quake IV will tax many a gamer's system. Here are the final minimum and recommended requirements:

    System Requirements:
  • Operating System: Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later
  • CPU Processor: PowerPC G4/G5 or Intel chipset
  • CPU Speed: 1.67 GHz or faster
  • Memory: 512 MB or higher
  • Hard Disk Space: 3.0 GB free disk space
  • Video Card (ATI): Radeon 9600 or better
  • Video Card (NVidia): GeForce 6600 or better
  • Video Memory (VRam): 64 MB or higher
  • Multiplayer: Internet (TCP/IP) and LAN (TCP/IP) play supported. Internet play requires broadband connection.
  • Media Required: DVD Drive

  • *Supported Video cards: NVIDIA GeForce 6600, 6800, 7800 ATI Radeon 9600, 9650, 9700, 9800, X600, X800, X850, X1600

    Recommended System Requirements:

  • Quake 4 runs best on a Power Mac G5 or Intel 2.0 GHz or faster
  • Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later
  • CPU Processor: PowerPC G5 or Intel chipset
  • CPU Speed: 2.0 GHz or faster
  • Video RAM: 128 MB
