On Elite Force Mac Demo
12:06 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Recently we brought you news that the PC demo of Raven Software's shooter Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force had been released, and was greeted with much praise. Although we have reported in the past numerous times that a deal for a Mac publisher is still in negotiation, Raven did note at one point that they had the Mac version of this title running well enough to play 'holomatch' (multiplayer deathmatch) between Mac and PC. Since the PC demo is premiering months before the actual title is due to ship - in much the same way as Quake 3 Arena's demo was presented - we were curious as to whether a Mac demo would be seen in the future. Here is Ken Hoekstra's response to our inquiry:

The deal for the Mac version of Elite Force is still being negotiated. As such, there are no plans for a Mac demo to be released any time soon. Sorry...
This is exactly the response we expected. However, it is nice to see that such negotiations are underway - for a short time we feared that the promised Mac version might never ship. Watch for more news about the Mac version of this title in the near future - we suspect MWNY may hold some surprises for Mac gaming in general.
