E3: Return to Castle Wolfenstein Report
1:32 PM | Patrick Leyden | Comment on this story
The eagerly anticipated first person shooter Return to Castle Wolfenstein was being shown in an early playable state on the show floor at E3. This title is a followp to the groundbreaking title from iD Software that helped ignite the first person shooter genre. The title is being developed by Grey Matter and is being published for Windows by Activision.
This updated version of the game is based on the Quake III graphics engine. This technology is also at the core of other Mac games such as Heavy Metal 2 F.A.A.K. and the soon-to-be-released Alice. When asked about the possibility of a Macintosh version of this game, representatives from developer Grey Matter indicated that it was not out of the realm of possibilities.
E3: Return to Castle Wolfenstein Site Launched
Grey Matter developers did, at one point, have Mac hardware in their offices and experimented with the portability of Return to Castle Wolfenstein. No work has been done in months on a Mac version of the game. There is no solid release date for the game except a vague 'when it's done' timeframe.
