Uru Live Dead, Mac Version Officially Announced
7:43 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story
In a letter posted on their website, Cyan has announced some good and bad news concerning Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, the latest game in the legendary Myst series. The bad news is that the interest for Uru Live, the massive multiplayer aspect of the new game, has been way to small to be able to keep it alive. To compensate for this Cyan brings us two excellent announcements instead; the new content planned for Uru Live will be released as expansion packs, of which the first will be free, but more important: Uru: Ages Beyond Myst is officially coming to the Mac.
From the letter:
The soul of Uru Live came in two parts: the community and the content. Both will live on. Nothing can kill the community - it has a life of its own. The Call and the Gathering of the community will continue. And the content - what can I say? We have it, large amounts of it, ready to expand the world of Uru. In the past weeks we've been hard at work packaging that content in a different, more inclusive form - expansion packs - the first of which will be available in a month or two. Even better, the first expansion pack, To D'ni, is free. And there's more good news on inclusivity. I'm pleased to officially announce that the Mac version of Uru is finally under way.To read the full letter, follow the link provided below.
There is no word on who will publish the Mac version or any indication as to when it will be released, but we will keep you informed as details are revealed.
