On Wednesday game developer Linden Research released Second Life for the PC, a new massive multiplayer online game where players create their own characters who live in an ever-changing online world. Though still in its early state, Second Life is already a huge success, and Linden announced today that they will be bringing the game to the Mac sometime later this year. Here's the official announcement:
Mac users will soon be able to enter the exciting 3D world of Second Life - a rapidly expanding online society, entirely defined and built by its users.Second Life, similar to games such as The Sims: Online, offers players a complete virtual world for their characters to inhabit. For more information about the game, be sure to check out the official website, and stay tuned to IMG as we keep you posted on the Mac version's progress.
We plan to offer Second Life for Mac OS X by the end of 2003, and hope to begin Beta testing in Fall 2003.
System requirements will be as follows:
- 1 GHz G4 or better
- 256 MB
- ATI Radeon 8500/GeForce 2 or better
- OS X.2.6 or better
For those interested in seeing the game in action, Apple has posted a trailer for Second Life on their website. Be sure to check it out.
