10:30 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Infogrames' Nate Birkholz recently posted in MacGamer's forum with some interesting tidbits regarding the upcoming version of Master of Orion III. In his post, Birkholz confirms that the Mac version of Master of Orion III will use GameSpy as its in-game multiplayer browser, allowing Mac gamers to play cross-platform Internet games with PC users. In addition, Brikholz also said that there are currently no plans for a demo of Master of Orion III. He did, however, offer up the latest system requirements for the game:

  • 350MHz or faster G3/G4 Processor
  • 128MB RAM (256MB recommended)
  • OS 9.1 or OSX v10.1.5 or higher
  • Monitor with support for 800 X 600 at Thousands of Colors
  • 400 MB Hard Drive space
  • For those unfamiliar with the game, in Master of Orion III, the player becomes the leader of one of 16 different races and then goes on an epic quest to become the ultimate leader of the galaxy. The game recently went gold for the PC and the Mac version is close behind. When completed, Master of Orion III will be published by MacSoft.
