Dungeon Siege Hits The Macintosh

The guys at RPGVault have posted a press release that announces the upcoming release of Dungeon Siege for the Macintosh. Check it out:

    Destineer's Macintosh label, Bold, announces today that it will release Microsoft's hugely-popular fast-action role-playing game, Dungeon Siege, for the Macintosh. One of the ten best-selling games for the Windows platform so far this year, Dungeon Siege is the recipient of Editor's Choice awards from PC Gamer, Computer Games Magazine, IGN, Gamespot, the UK's PC Zone, and many more.
    Dungeon Siege is a Fantasy Role-Playing game with an emphasis on combat and action. It is set in a gigantic, continuous, fully 3D world that truly extends in all directions. Players peer down from ledges on enemies in valleys below. They cross chasms over wooden bridges and climb to the top of ten-story towers. Players journey from secret underground lairs to towering mountains without ever stopping to watch a loading screen.

    Players can travel alone or assemble a party of up to eight cohorts. Each member of the party can be set to react differently to any given combat situation and they will fall into a formation of the player's choosing at the player's whim. Players can combine the many skills of the characters within the party to create a powerful troop whose might in battle is greater than the sum of the individuals.

    Dungeon Siege provides a very rich multiplayer experience. Human players can become companions in a traveling party and compete head-to-head against other human opponents. Players can play over a local area network or the Internet.

    Dungeon Siege should be available for Macintosh in early 2003. The Macintosh version is being developed by Westlake Interactive.

    Destineer is a developer and publisher of games for personal computers and videogame consoles. The company's Destineer Studios is creating original games using proprietary 3D engine technologies developed by the company. The company's Macintosh label, Bold, brings many of Microsoft's most popular games to the Macintosh, including Haloý, Dungeon Siege, Age of Empires II, and Links Championship Edition.
