Gold Edition wraps in extra campaign, unit packs
Feral Interactive has announced that a Mac port of Creative Assembly's Napoleon: Total War - Gold Edition will launch on July 3rd. Players assume control of France, Austria, Prussia, Russia, or Great Britain during the Napoleonic era. Politics, economics, and research are controlled from a turn-based strategic map, while land and sea battles are fought in a real-time 3D view. The single-player battles and campaign are complemented by several multiplayer modes, including drop-in battles and full campaign sessions.
The Gold Edition incorporates all extra downloadable content, such as The Peninsula Campaign, in which Napoleon fights against Spain, Portugal, and the UK for control of the Iberian Peninsula. Also bundled are three unit packs: the Imperial Eagle Pack, the Coalition Battle Pack, and the Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars Pack. When bought from the Mac App Store, the game is Game Center-compatible.
Feral is selling Napoleon for $30. Players must have at least an Intel Mac with OS X 10.7.5, 4GB of RAM, 30GB of hard drive space, and 256MB of video memory. Certain video chipsets aren't supported however, and recommended specs include OS X 10.8.3, a 2.4GHz processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512MB of video RAM.
