MacSoft announces Rise of Nations for Macintosh

updated 12:05 pm EDT, Thu June 17, 2004

Rise of Nations coming

Destineer's for Mac, the critically-acclaimed real-time strategy game. It combines the epic scope of traditional turn-based strategy (TBS) games with the fast-paced action of RTS games, allowing players to create new cities, improve their city infrastructure and expand national borders. Players have the option to win through military might using everything from slingshots to cannons to stealth bombers, or they can corner the market on key commodities as they wheel and deal with a wide variety of nations. The Mac version has been under development since February by Westlake Interactive and is scheduled for completion this summer.

"Unlike other historical RTS games, Rise of Nations allows gamers to quickly play through eight historical epochs of time from the Ancient Age to the Information age, covering 6,000 years of history. Gamers can play a quick battle on any map as one of 18 nations, or play the non-linear single-player Conquer the World Campaign. Players will also be able to battle with up to 8 players online or via a LAN connection."
