Bold Site Opens, New Links Details
9:37 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Peter Tamte's Destineer has finally opened a web site for their Bold label of Mac games. As you know, Bold will be porting some of the most popular titles from Microsoft such as Age of Empires II: Gold Edition and now Links Championship Edition. Tamte just announced the Championship Edition in a new press release, and the game should ship around the same time and same price point as its PC counterpart this fall. Links Championship Edition will include many extra goodies from the original Links 2001, including the previously-announced Arnold Palmer course creator. This is great news for golf fans anxious to make their perfect round. Here's a clip from the PR:

Some of the features in Links that are new to the Macintosh community
include a completely new graphics engine, new physics engine, a
full-featured course designer, new golfer personalities, and 13 of the
world's best golf courses, including Oakmont Country Club, The Royal
Melbourne Golf Club, Four Seasons Resort Aviara, Chateau Whistler, The
Prince Course at Princeville Resort, Westfields Golf Club, and many more.

Links Championship Edition is the biggest upgrade to the Links Macintosh
series ever. The game should be available for Macintosh in late November. It
will work with MacOS 8.6 or higher, as well as natively on MacOS X.

The new Bold Games web site has lots of detailed information on Links Championship Edition, with many new screen shots of the golfers, courses and editor. Links is expected to ship in November and should retail for the same as the PC version, between $49-$54. Bold's other title, Age of Empires II Gold Edition, should be released next month as well.
