Freeverse: Cider Will Not Impact Mac HoMM V
8:29 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

In an email response to The Mac Centric: Heroes of Might and Magic V website, Freeverse's Colin Smith said TransGaming's announcement of Cider would have no effect on the release of HoMM V for the Mac. The upcoming Cider promises to "wrap" PC games in emulation software capable of rendering the games playable in OS X without the need for Windows or any tinkering on the part of the user.

Cider sounds very interesting... and Iíll be very curious to see how well it works. It wont have any impact on HOMMV though since that port is already underway.
HoMM V for Mac is slated for a Christmas release. More commentary on Cider can be found at the site listed below.

Update: Freeverse's Colin Smith let us know that the company is actively evaluating Cider for HoMM V.
