Strategy First and Cornered Rat have announced that after a successful beta test of their massively multilplayer war sim World War II Online for Mac OS X, they will be releasing the final, boxed version in November. Interestingly, Infogrames will be handling the publishing of the Mac version, presumably through their Mac label MacSoft.
The Mac version will have an up-front cost, as well as a recurring monthly fee similar to most massively multiplayer titles. It will also include a number of extras specifically for Mac gamers. Here's the press release with more:
"Our development team has worked to ensure that gameplay is identical across all platforms and we’re excited to welcome fresh recruits to the battle," says Al Corey, Executive Producer at Playnet. "The response by the Mac community to our beta tests showed us that the Mac community has been waiting a long time for a MMOG like WWII Online and we’re ready for them".If you'd like to try out the OS X client now, a pre-release test is available with signups at the World War II Online web site. Stay tuned to IMG for more info as the final version nears release.
World War II Online Mac Editionalso contains special bonus items, such as a large foldout wall map of the game world, the official music track, and 20 original illustrations and wallpapers inspired by the game.
World War II Online Mac Editionwill be distributed throughout North America exclusively by Infogrames and is set to ship in early November.
