Aspyr to Publish Return to Castle Wolfenstein
6:00 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story
As IMG reported yesterday afternoon, Aspyr Media has launched a web page featuring Return to Castle Wolfenstein for the Mac. This first-person shooter, the sequel to id Software's legendary Wolfenstein 3D (which was itself a sequel to the famous Castle Wolfenstein, first released for the Apple II), was developed by id in collaboration with Nerve Software and Gray Matter Studios and is the "Muse" project under way at Mac porting house Westlake Interactive.
In conjunction with this news, IMG has published a first look at the Mac version of Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Here's a brief excerpt to whet your appetite:
After you escape Castle Wolfenstein, you’ll descend a tramway that leads down to a village below. From the mountainous tramway to the immense forest level below, you’ll begin to wonder… is this really the Quake III Arena engine? The answer is yes. A modified version of the Quake III: Team Arena engine allows for huge outdoor environments. My jaw dropped a few times when I saw these massive wide-open spaces. Later on in the game you’ll witness a massive working airfield and a V2 missile test facility that are incredibly beautiful and detailed.Follow the link below for this first look at this eagerly anticipated game.
According to Westlake Interactive, Return to Castle Wolfenstein will be published for the Mac as a Carbon application, allowing it to run natively under both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X, probably in late January or early February.
