Aspyr Posts May Newsletter
10:46 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Aspyr has posted their May newsletter that includes a number of important updates on their upcoming products. The newsletter also includes a trivia contest, and a small Q&A with JoAnne McElyea, Senior Accountant at Aspyr. Here's some of the highlights from the newsletter:

The Sims 2:

The Sims 2, Electronic Arts' sequel to the Sims, is coming to the Mac! Working in cooperation with Apple, The Sims 2, developed for Mac by Aspyr Studios, has been designed to take advantage of several new features included in the Mac OS X version 10.4 'Tiger', to deliver an improved gaming experience.

The Sims 2, which is set for release in June, will make extensive use of the OpenGL technology to bring vivid, lifelike animations to the Sims. The title will also stand to benefit from the new .Mac services, which will allow players to share their own Sims families with friends via their .Mac iDisk.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005:
In other news, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 is rapidly approaching beta, and is looking beautiful. This will without a doubt be one of the best golf games ever to come out on the Mac. The gameplay and graphics engine are very refined and show an incredible amount of polish.
Stubbs the Zombie:
Finally, Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel without a Pulse for Mac & PC is also picking up steam. We've been busy preparing versions to possibly demo at upcoming trade shows, and the state of the Mac & PC version is following very closely to the Xbox version. The development is still well on track for a simultaneous ship of all three platforms.
