Soldier of Fortune II Slightly Delayed [Updated]
7:04 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Joshua Smith, the Creative Developer of Mac game publisher MacPlay reported that their upcoming release of Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix has been slightly delayed. The delay is due to the sudden arrival of a new patch for the already released Windows version of the game, version 1.01. This new patch adds many new features and addresses the numerous bugs users reported in 1.0. One of the biggest changes is the addition of 4, brand new multiplayer maps. For more information regarding changes and fixes, check out the patch's official page. A link is provided at the bottom of this article.

Rather than release the game a version behind, MacPlay has decided to wait until the newest patch has been implemented into the product before releasing it to the Mac gaming audience. Smith had this to say in the MacGamer forums:

There is a slight delay guys. I would say sorry but the hold up is that we are incorporating the 1.01 updater into our initial release (so it's a good reason). Our first version will be free of the bugs that were in the initial PC version. The game is TOTALLY awesome. We're playing the latest build here in the office via Internet multiplayer and I am addicted. It's the best FPS I've ever played (seriously, not just pimping). Shouldn't be much longer we're just about to GM this 1.01 build.There is no date as of yet to when the game will be patched and ready to ship.
Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix is the sequel to the ultra-realistic Soldier of Fortune, where you take on the role of John Mullins, leader of an anti-terrorist organization. You can pre-order Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix from the IMG Store. Subscribers can pay a special members-only price of $39, while non-subscribers can purchase it for $49.
