For those who have been eagerly awaiting Wolfpack Studios' Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG), Shadowbane, the wait is finally over; Shadowbane has been released for Mac OS X and PC. For those unfamiliar with the game, Shadowbane is a title attempting to break from the genre's mold, including such features as player-built cities, all-out warfare among guilds, along with a host of different races and classes from which to choose.

In addition, IMG has posted a hand-on look at the game from the perspective of the latest 1.0 beta. Here's a clip from the preview on what you can expect from Shadowbane:

You may ask what the big fuss is about Shadowbane, especially with so many great role-playing games present on the Mac (or coming soon). First, understand the concept of a persistent online world where players can meet and organize at all hours of the day. Then realize that Wolfpack has, from day one, been trying to distinguish Shadowbane from other MMORPGs by shifting the game's focus away from strictly leveling up your character to a more holistic strategy that encompasses the entire game world.
Be sure to check out the rest of the preview for more on the game.

The official Mac system requirements for Shadowbane are:

  • G3 350 MHz. or higher
  • 128 MB RAM
  • 1 GB free hard drive space
  • OS X version 10.2
  • CD-ROM drive
  • 56 kbps modem + Internet connection
  • 32 MB VRAM
