Vampire: tM Status Check
9:05 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

MacSoft's Nate Birkholz has been roaming our forums lately, answering a few questions here and there about upcoming titles from the company. With the end of May rapidly approaching, a few gamers were wondering about the status of Vampire: the Masquerade, the new 3D RPG. The game was set for a release this month, but it looks like it might get pushed back into early June. Here's the first post from Nate, which addresses a question about a magazine advertisement for the game which says "Now Available," spotted in Macworld:

It was supposed to be out by Mid-May, now sometime late May/early June. We have to place the ads about 5 months in advance, and it was ahead of schedule at that point.

There seem to be just a few small issues remaining.

Minor setbacks like these are not completely unexpected, and early June will certainly be an acceptable timeframe for this excellent title.

A little later in the thread, Nate also remarks on the graphics requirements for the game. He notes that a Rage 128 is what he is using to test the game, and this should be fine for the final version as well. The original PC release was marred by bugs which were later patched, and he also thinks the Mac version will have incorporated this changes already. Lastly, Nate promises new screen shots from the Mac build very soon, so stay tuned. If you want to find out more about this celebrated, unusual title, be sure and visit the official web site.
