ECTS: Black & White Expansion Set Announced
10:31 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Lionhead Software has recently announced their intention to release an expansion set for their popular god sim Black & White. Titled Creature Isle, this expansion will allow players to have their creatures breed with female creatures.

The main reason for this was made painfully obvious by Peter Molyneaux at the recent ECTS:

Peter nonchalantly opened up the demonstration with the blunt statement, "Overwhelmingly what the fans said is they'd like to see their creature have sex with another creature."
Creature Isle will feature an island with a several male creatures, including a new crocodile creature, all of whom are competing for the attentions of a single female creature. The strongest, most dominant creature, as in nature, will be the one to earn the right to breed.

Also to be included in the expansion is the "tyke" creature, which is basically small creature that will learn from the player's own creature in a "father/son" type of relationship. The tyke can also be imported back into the original Black & White for further training time with creatures.

The current projected release date is between Nov 2001 and Feb 2002. There's no word yet if this pack is coming to the Mac, as we don't even have the original title available as of yet.

In related news, we recently had an unconfirmed report from a former IMG staff member that the Mac OS version of Black and White may be farther along than previously suspected, and is currently playable. A Mac OS version of the game would certainly be a nice holiday present for Mac Gamers, so we wish Feral the best of luck with their port.
