August MacPlay Newsletter Released
9:15 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

While looking around the spiffy new MacPlay web site, we noticed their very first newsletter has been posted with lots of good information on their many titles. This August issue starts with a word from public relations man Andrew Hoolan and then dives right into the latest news, recapping Baldur's Gate II going gold and yesterday's Aliens versus Predator announcement. Next are two quick previews of their first new games in a while; Baldur's Gate II and Fighter Squadron. Both give a nice overview of the games, including quick lists of their promised features, so be sure to head over for a look.

Also in the issue is a short strategy guide for their 'motivational' fantasy strategy game Majesty, and they even have a short Q&A session which handles some questions from anxious fans. The most interesting piece comes at the end, when they give a comprehensive list of their many titles being released in the coming months. Here's the scoop:

  • Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn - Available September 2001.

  • Fighter Squadron: The Screamin' Demons Over Europe - Fall 2001.

  • Sacrifice - Fall 2001.

  • Icewind Dale - Coming late 2001.

  • Giants: Citizen Kabuto - Available September 2001.

  • StarFleet Command Volume II: Empires at War - Fall 2001.

  • Aliens vs. Predator (Gold Edition) - Available September 2001.

  • Zork Grand Inquisitor - Available October 2001.

  • Heretic II - Available October 2001.

  • Hexen II - Available October 2001.

That is certainly an impressive list of A-titles, and we will definitely keep you posted as they start appearing in stores this fall.

You can preorder AvP and Baldur's Gate II right now from their web site, or remember that MacGames CD subscribers can order BGII for only $39 at our store. Majesty and Sin are also free options with new subscriptions, or only $10 for those already subscribed.
