Aspyr: Sim City 4 Reqs, Spearhead Beta, More
9:04 AM | Scott Turner | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media, publisher of many exciting games for the Mac, has released their February newsletter to those on their mailing list. Including the usual status reports on all of their latest games, from Tiger Woods PGA Tour to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, it also brings news of new strategy guides, updates, and many tidbits on new games from the company.

Most interesting to Mac gamers might be the preliminary system requirements for the just-announced Sim City 4. Here's what Aspyr thinks you'll need to be able to run the game:

  • Mac OS X, version 10.2 or later
  • Power Mac G3/G4, iMac G4/eMac, PowerBook G4 (DVI model or better), iBook (32MB VRAM model only)
  • 500 MHz or faster
  • 256 MB RAM
  • 1 GB of free hard disk space available
  • Hardware 3D acceleration required: ATI Radeon or NVidia GeForce card (32 MB VRAM or better)
Other interesting news includes the fact that the expansion pack Medal of Honor Allied Assault Spearhead is now in beta testing and is expected for a May release.

Aspyr also explains the current situation with the sequel Star Trek: Elite Force II:

This month we also announced that Star Trek Voyager Elite Force II will be coming to the Mac. As the PC version has not gone Gold, the game has not begun development. However, as more details become available, we will get them to you.
For the rest of the information on all of these titles, head on over to Aspyr's website at the link below, and check out their February newsletter edition. To get the news even earlier, make sure you're a subscriber to the newsletter yourself.
