Game features online multiplay, four game modes
Paramount and TransGaming have announced a December release for a Mac version of Star Trek: D-A-C. The new game is a top-down space shooter game pitting Starfleet against the Romulan Empire, supporting online multiplayer for up to 12 players, online co-op and single-player gameplay. Gameplay options include survival, team deathwatch, conquest and assault. Defeated ships offer new abilities and score pick-ups in survival mode, while conquest and assault gameplay involve attacking or defending sectors of space.
The game offers five ship types for each side - Missile Cruiser, Support Frigate, Bomber, Fighter and Flagship, with each ship offering unique abilities. The U.S.S. Enterprise is the flagship for Starfleet.
The Mac version is set to arrive via digital download - pre-orders are being taken now. The game is slated to play on Mac OSX 10.5.8 or higher, requiring at least an Intel Core Duo processor and 2GB of RAM. An ATI X1600 or NVIDIA8600 GT or better video card is also required. The game will be priced at $9.
