More NOLF Details from MacPlay
6:31 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Last Friday we received the exciting news that MacPlay has added the first-person shooter No One Lives Forever to their catalog of future releases. Due to be released in Q2 2002, this tongue-in-cheek title has won rave reviews on the PC side for its diversity, visuals and sense of humor -- imagine SiN crossed with an Austin Powers movie, and you begin to get the idea.

Today MacPlay filled us in with an additional press release that offers more details on this title. The PR contains one important detail that was not in the MacPlay newsletter on Friday -- the game will be ported to Classic (OS 9) as well as Mac OS X. Here's an excerpt:

MacPlay announced today that it has
secured the rights to publish Fox Interactive's The Operative*: No One Lives
Forever*. One of the most critically acclaimed first person shooters, the
title will ship in the second quarter of 2002, on the Mac OS X and classic
Mac OS platforms.
The award-winning game was named "Action Game Of The Year" by PC Gamer,
Computer Games Magazine and Computer Gaming World, and has garnered ratings
of 5 out of 5 from Computer Games Online and Maxim Online, as well as 9 out
of 10 from Happy Puppy and Game Maniacs.

"The addition of The Operative: No One Lives Forever to our already strong
library of titles builds on our partnership with Fox Interactive and will
allow us to continue to bring the best in computer gaming to the Macintosh
and our MacPlay loyal customers," said Mark Cottam, President of MacPlay.
"This game is a refreshing first-person game that offers players a great
storyline, fun game play and a dash of 60's humor."

The Operative: No One Lives Forever is a first-person action-adventure in
which gamers experience the distinct style and locales of the fabulous 60's
in a captivating story of espionage. Taking on the role of Agent Cate
Archer, a beautiful but deadly female operative working for an international
anti-terrorist organization called UNITY, players are challenged to complete
intense assignments in foreign locations throughout the world. Agent Archer
must use her charm and espionage training to find a way to stop the outlaw
megalomaniacs of the H.A.R.M. terrorist group. In this thrilling spy
adventure, Agent Archer must ingeniously use her killer gadgets and weapons
to navigate and survive.

Key Features of The Operative: No One Lives Forever include:

  • 15 single player missions spanning across 60 levels, which wraps
    around an original and engaging story of espionage featuring a sexy and
    sophisticated female operative

  • Over 30 unique and ingenious spy weapons and gadgetry, including a
    missile-launching briefcase, Robotic pheromone poodle, exploding lipstick,
    lock-pick barrette and lethal acid perfume

  • Stunningly expansive outdoor environments and richly detailed
    animation blending

  • Hours of riveting gameplay in diverse and exotic locales around the
    world, such as Morocco, England, Germany, the American Northwest, the French
    Alps and even a secret Russian space station

  • 20 over-the-top characters and outrageous villains with wry humor
    and witty dialogue

  • Multiplay for up to 16 players. Online gamers can take their chances
    in an all-or-nothing Good vs. Evil Multiplayer game or go head-to-head in
    Deathmatch mode
