Aspyr June Newsletter Released
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Four huge titles being released in a one month period has to make June one of the busiest for publishing house Aspyr Media this year. Late yesterday the company released their newsletter for June, recapping the new titles, as well as looking forward to their newly announced games such as The Sims: Vacation and Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast.

The fourth expansion pack for the best selling game of all time, The Sims: Vacation looks to take your Sims to places they've never been before. Westlake Interactive's experienced programmer Mark Krenek is on the job and Aspyr has some preliminary system requirements already in the newsletter:

-Full version of The Sims required to play.
-Mac OS 8.6, 9, X or later
-233MHz or faster (333MHz recommended)
-PowerMac G3 or G4 processor
-192 MB of built-in RAM (additional Virtual Memory may be necessary)
-4 MB video memory
-600 MB storage space
-8x CD-ROM drive
-Video Card (ATI Rage Pro, NVidia GeForce or later)
These are of course subject to change before the game's release, which has yet to be determined.

The other big non-shipping title on their plate is Jedi Knight II, which was just recently revealed as going into Alpha by Brad Oliver, also at Westlake Interactive. This stage means that most all of the game's major systems are in place already, and Oliver will hopefully be able to move into beta testing soon.

A recap of the games shipping this month includes the real-time strategy Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, the highly acclaimed shooter Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, the spooky Undying, and of course The Sims: Hot Date. We expect more great things from Aspyr as Macworld New York approaches and throughout the rest of the year. If you aren't a subscriber to the Aspyr Newsletter, be sure to head over to their site now to sign up.
