Updates on Chessmaster 9000, Worms 3D, XIII
7:42 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Updates to the Feral Interactive site this morning include new information on the newly announced Chessmaster 9000, as well as status on both Worms 3D and the cell-shaded shooter XIII.

It seems a number of chess fans have been asking Feral about Chessmaster 9000, which was just announced at this year's Macworld San Francisco, and they have obligingly answered a few of the most popular ones:

  • Yes it is coming!!
  • Release is planned for the second quarter of this year.
  • It's not decided whether it will support OS 9 or not.
  • The old bloke on the packaging is not Gandalf moonlighting for some extra moolah.
Stay tuned for more on the title on March 12, when Feral plans to release the Chessmaster 9000 mini-site.

Next up is a new QuickTime video showing off the Mac version of Worms 3D, the next-generation warfare/strategy game played entirely with these cute, ground-dwelling creatures. The 8MB download shows off much of the impressive new weaponry, as well as giving you a feel for how the game runs on OS X. Fans of the series are encouraged to head over and give it a look. While there is no specific release date yet for Worms 3D, they are hoping to have it ready in Q2.

Lastly, the third and final teaser for XIII is now available, giving you a look at some of the characters in this highly stylized FPS. XIII is expected out sometime midway through April.
