GOW, UT3 for Mac
Epic Games' Vice President Mark Rein has officially announced that Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3 will both be released for Mac OS X. Rein makes the announcement in a video hosted by Gametrailers.com. Gears of War is a tactical third-person shooter video game that is based on the Unreal 3 engine. It features the Delta Force fighting against an invasion of the "Locust Horde." The game debuted for Xbox in November 2006, and has since gained a loyal following and tremendous sales, moving more than 3 million units in just 10 weeks. Microsoft confirmed it would deliver a Windows version of Gears of War at E3 2007 last week, though it's still not clear whether there will be a simultaneous platform release. Unreal Tournament 3, the sequel to Unreal Tournament 2004, will be designed primarily for multiplayer gaming, but will also feature a story-line for single-player gaming. Unreal Tournament 3 is scheduled to ship for the PC and Playstation 3 in November 2007 -- no Mac OS X release date has been announced.
