WarBirds III for OS X in March; Retail Version Planned
8:36 AM | John Rousselle | Comment on this story
iEntertainment Network recently announced that the Mac OS X version of WarBirds III is on track for a March 1st release and that they are finalizing plans to distribute boxed versions of the game in retail outlets.
WarBirds, a subscription-based massively multiplayer World War II flight simulator, has been a bastion of online gaming since the early days of the genre, and it continues to evolve. Over the past year, iEN has worked hard to polish the stunning visuals and extra features of WarBirds III, incorporating new planes, ground vehicles, and terrains in addition to the hardware-accelerated eye candy.
News of the boxed version of the game will be a welcome relief to those who find the large download (90+ MB, not counting extra art packs and terrains) a bit daunting (and who don't subscribe to our MacGames CD, which includes it).
WarBirds III is available as a free download, and there is no charge for offline practice. Users pay $9.95 per month for a basic account (which includes unlimited time in the WarBirds III arenas) and $24.95 per month for an account that allows unlimited access to all arenas.
