Mac Dark Age of Camelot a Possibility?
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

IMG recently contacted Mythic Entertainment about the possibility of a Macintosh port of their extremely popular new MMORPG Dark Age of Camelot. While the news is admittedly grim at the moment, there is the hint that future developments may not be entirely out of the question. Here's the word from Mythic's Eugene Evans:

Thank you for contacting us. We don't currently have plans for a port to
the Mac. However, if we knew the demand was there we would give it
serious consideration.
The game is based on the NetImmerse 3D game engine, which was advertised as having a Macintosh branch until sometime last year. Even though NetImmerse's parent company NDL no longer supports the Mac, they do have the engine running on a number of consoles as well as Windows. This makes the feasibility of a Mac port much higher than if it was a custom-built engine.

While we don't want to encourage too much hope at this point, it is good to hear the company is open to the idea of a Mac version. With the distinct lack of MMORPG's currently available for the Mac, Dark Age of Camelot's popularity would surely cross over if a Mac client was made available. For more information on the game, check out a recent interview at GameAddicts. They discuss how DAoC distinguishes itself from other massively multiplayer games (besides the fact that its launch went much better than other recent online titles), as well as including many impressive screen shots. We'll keep on this and report back any changes that we may hear about their Mac priorities.
