Aspyr Status Update, Deus Ex Ships
10:30 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media has updated their web page with some good news for anxious Mac gamers. Deus Ex is now shipping to stores and pre-orderers, only a few short weeks after the PC version! This is due to the hard work of the developers of Westlake Interactive and their prowess with the Unreal Tournament engine. If you already have an order placed, look for it in the mail soon. Here's an excerpt from the press release:

Aspyr Media Inc., in a continuing partnership with Eidos Interactive Inc., a leading developer and publisher of interactive entertainment, ships Deus Ex for the Macintosh(R) today, with the conversion performed by Westlake Interactive.

"With more and more Mac games starting to flow into the market, we feel that Deus Ex will raise the bar for all Action/RPG's to follow," says Chip Blundell, senior product manager at Eidos Interactive.

"It's one of the most highly rated games out there right now, and we're confident the Mac version will deliver the same thrills and excitement that thousands of gamers have already experienced."

Deus Ex is the highly anticipated role-playing futuristic adventure from Ion Storm. A gamer's dream, Deus Ex combines stealth, strategy, and intense shoot 'em up action.

Nano-augmented anti-terrorist agent J.C. Denton travels the globe, in a quest for knowledge, developing strengths and building a network of allies as he tries to unravel the conspiracy and save the world from the shadows of evil. Terrorists, hell bent on world domination, bully the world, loyalty is a memory and lies and betrayal are common place as nothing is as it seems. Who do you trust? Maybe no one.

Whether to pick a lock or smash the door, go in shooting or sneak around back -- Deus Ex features multiple paths and an ever changing storyline based on the player's actions.

"Deus Ex will set a new standard for the single-player experience. The involving story, incredible graphics, unparalleled interactivity, and unprecedented level of detail in dialog and character interaction make this game a must have for every type of gamer," says Jeff Baietto, VP of Marketing for Aspyr.

Deus Ex, for Macintosh, will be available wherever Mac games are sold, with a Suggested Retail Price of $49.95.

Aspyr's site also notes that the Mac version of The Sims is very close to gold master. Westlake's Ken Cobb has confirmed this in the MacCentral forums, noting that the game will be ready and waiting at MacWorld New York next week:
It will be ready for Macworld.

Ready as in you can buy it and take it home.

This is awesome news for the Mac gaming scene with these two great games coming so soon after their PC counterparts. Be sure to check out our recent preview of Deus Ex, and look for a demo to be released in the near future. Also don't forget to sign up for our Deus Ex giveaway going on right now!
