Red Faction Shipping Today
9:05 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Last week IMG brought you word on Red Faction going gold and being sent to duplication. Now the GraphSim web site has been updated with news that the title has been released. IMG talked with the company this morning, and today is the day the game will start shipping to pre-orders and stores.

The major reason for the game's delay had been adding Mac OS X support. It seems performance issues are holding back the OS X version. In an effort to get the title out before the holiday season, it made sense to go ahead and ship the Mac OS 9 version now and then release a Carbonized patch for the game later.

Here's more from GraphSim's web site:

We are very pleased to announce the Gold Master status of Red Faction for Mac. The initial release will not support OS X or classic mode. Game play and performance under OS 9.2 has been great and multiplayer is a blast.
Jeff Morgan sent this quick note to IMG this morning on Red Faction's shipping status:
We began shipping some copies to distributors yesterday. The majority of the pre-orders will be shipping out today and through the rest of the week.
For more information on the game, be sure to have a look at GraphSim's Red Faction page, and read through IMG's preview of the title for a look at what to expect. Red Faction is available for MacGames CD subscribers at the IMG Store for $35, so get your order in now.
