Summoner Goes Gold, Preorders Starting
9:54 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

While we reported this late yesterday, it was such good news we wanted to make sure everyone saw it. Jeff Morgan at GraphSim let us know that the 3D RPG Summoner has officially gone Gold Master for the Mac. This means the final copy is now ready to be sent into production, with the game hitting stores within a few weeks. Summoner features huge levels, amazing spells, a deep storyline, and a combat system which should satisfy both RPG and action gamers alike. Here's what Jeff had to say:

We are very pleased to announce the Gold master status of Summoner. This is the first fully 3D RPG available for the Mac and I am very confident that fans of the genre are in for a very enjoyable experience.
The game will hopefully be through production and available on June 20. Preorders should start today at the official GraphSim store, so be sure to get your copy ordered now.

A demo is unlikely, since the PC demo of the game was really just a hardware test to work out bugs (and was an enormous download). There is still OS X support planned through a Carbon version of the game, though it's unknown exactly when that build will be availble. It will likely be a free download for owners of the full version of Summoner. For more information, check out IMG's recent preview of the game and our interview with Volition's Mark Allender.
