Summoner for PC Almost Gold?
9:08 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Uncannily accurate news source Gone Gold is reporting that they have received word from publisher THQ that the 3D RPG Summoner is a mere two weeks from "golden master" status and should ship by the end of this month. As the Mac version of this title is being created in-house by developer Volition, it isn't unreasonable to expect that to ship around that same time or very soon afterwards. Summoner for the Mac OS is being published by GraphSim, as is Volition's other title, sci-fi shooter Red Faction.


We've contacted Volition and THQ to determine the status of the Mac version of this title; based on OpenGL, our version should look identical to and network seamlessly with the PC version. While both platforms are receiving Summoner almost half a year after it shipped for the Playstation 2, we will get the added benefit of network play, multiple resolutions and various refinements to the gameplay and interface.


For those who haven't been following the flood of Summoner coverage in the past few weeks, this 3D RPG centers around the quest of Joseph, a young man gifted (or cursed, depending on your perspective) with the ability to summon demonic creatures from the netherworld to do his bidding. With his homeland under siege, he leads a party of adventurers on a quest to recover a sacred artifact and turn back the tide of war. For more Summoner details than you can shake a virtual stick at, browse the news database by following the link below. We'll let you know immediately when the status of Mac Summoner is confirmed.
