Apple has posted a new preview of Red Faction recently, looking at this next-gen FPS from GraphSim and Volition. The article gives a nice overview of the game's impressive artificial intelligence, Geo-Mod physics engine, and cross-platform Mac and PC multiplayer modes. The game will also support the popular Mac-only GameRanger service for finding games, as well as the in-game browser. Last we heard from GraphSim, the game was essentially done for OS 9 and was just being Carbonized for OS X support.
The article also lists the many weapons and vehicles in the game. Some hints are provided, as well as the final Mac system requirments:
- Mac OS 8.6 or higher (including Mac OS X
- 300MHz or higher processor speed
- 64 MB built-in RAM
- 3D Graphics Accelerator with 6 MB Video RAM (ATI including Radeon, or NVIDIA)
- 400 MB of HD space
Be sure to head over and give the preview a look for more info. MGCD subscribers can also take advantage of IMG's amazing $35 pre-order price for the game in our store right now.
