Prolific game publisher Aspyr Media announced Friday that they will be bringing the vampire-themed third person shooter BloodRayne to the Mac.
Sharing story elements with Clive Baker's Undying and gameplay elements from Max Payne, BloodRayne follows the story of a young vampiress-turned government agent who uses her supernatural powers and vampire strength in order to combat evil Nazi scientists and unholy forces of the occult:
Set in the mid-1930s, BloodRayne introduces the sexy, supernatural Agent BloodRayne. An unholy union of human and vampire, Agent BloodRayne was raised and trained by a secret governmental agency to hunt down and eliminate global evil forces. Now she must take on an occult faction of pre-Nazis and their army of vile, unearthly ghouls to prevent them from unleashing creatures of unfathomable terror onto the world.The very stylish game, which is rated "Mature" by the ESRB, draws heavily on cinematic horror elements, and, combined with the game's exotic 3D environments and original camera effects, makes for a truly unique gaming experience.
Agent BloodRayne's lethal repertoire includes inhuman strength, spectacular leaping and acrobatic skills, night vision, zoom vision and slow-motion perception that enables her to weave in and out of bullets. By feeding off the blood of other creatures, she is able to sustain her life force, however her undying thirst for blood compels her onward until she is driven into Bloodlust where she achieves near invincibility and unstoppable lethality.
Created by New Jersey-based developers Majesco Games, the game is driven by Terminal Reality's new Infernal Engine; the Mac port of the game is also being completed by the TR programming team.
Originally designed for the PC, Playstation 2, Xbox and Gamecube platforms, the initial versions of the game hit the shelves in mid-October of last year. Aspyr spokesperson Amy Torres expects the Mac version of the game to be released by the end of March of this year.
Current system requirements call for a PowerMac G4/iMac G4/eMac/PowerBook G4 with a 733 MHz or faster processor, 256MB of RAM, a 32MB 3D Graphics card (Radeon or GeForce strongly recommended), 2 GB of hard drive space, and MacOS X 10.2 (Jaguar) or later. Specs may change as the port gets finalized.
