Age of Empires III for Mac
MacSoft today unveiled Age of Empires III for Mac, a Universal Binary version of the real-time strategy game. "'Age of Empires III' picks up where 'Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings' left off, as players become one of eight European powers exploring, colonizing, and conquering the New World. Featuring amazing 3D graphics, remarkable Ageia PhysX technology, and an innovative Home City feature that lets players 'level-up' their evolving home city to strengthen their economy, technology, and military, 'Age of Empires III' for Macintosh sets many new standards for real-time strategy games." Players command rifled infantry to scatter soldiers and blast buildings with cannon fire, directing cavalry through plains while navigating naval fleets to hold strategic waterways. The title is scheduled to ship in late September (pricing was unavailable).
