12:08 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
MacNN has published a "first look" at Quicksilver's upcoming "4x" title Master of Orion III, a game of tactical space and ground combat set in a universe teeming with alien races. This sequel will be a major evolution of the classic series, and will also appear on the Mac OS, published by MacSoft, as we recently learned at MWSF.
With a mix of realtime and turn-based combat, many races to choose from and a huge galaxy to explore, this game is sure to tempt any fan of the empire-building or RTS genres. Here is an excerpt from MacNN's preview:
Master of Orion III (MOO3), being developed simultaneously for the Mac and2002 certainly seems a long time away, but we're sure the 'slobbering' fans they refer to will be patient. Read through the preview for more details, and visit the official web site if you're interested in even more information.
Master of Orion III Web Site
PC, is due to hit store shelves in the first quarter of 2002, something
which should placate the series' legions of slobbering fans. MOO3 won't
borrow any code from the first two games, instead being rebuilt entirely
from the ground up while retaining the same feel of the Masters of Orion
games. To say that MOO3 is a bit of an undertaking for a software company
might be the understatement of the year. The current feature list for MOO3
is enormous with Quicksilver working to improve on MOO2 any way it can while
preserving the game players loved.
