Ambrosia Software today confirmed that will be releasing DEFCON for the Mac in March. Developed by Introversion Software, DEFCON is an online multiplayer strategy game based around the theme of thermonuclear Armageddon. Ambrosia previous worked with Introversion to bring Uplink and Darwinia to the Mac.

Here's more from the press release:

All too often Mac users are overlooked in a world dominated by PC's
and consoles," said Mark Morris, Introversion Software's Managing
Director. "Both of our teams have worked particularly hard to make
sure that PC and Mac users can interact perfectly and we look forward
to welcoming a whole new set of gamers to DEFCON."

"We're extremely pleased to partner once again with Introversion to
bring DEFCON to the Mac OS X platform," said Ambrosia Software's el
Presidente, Andrew Welch. "We've expended enormous effort to ensure
that DEFCON for the Mac will be interoperable with the Windows
version for network play, and also to make sure the UI experience is
up to par in terms of what Mac users expect."

DEFCON is an online, competitive, multiplayer strategy game
simulating global thermonuclear war. The game, inspired by the 1983
cult-classic film, WarGames, superbly evokes the tension, paranoia
and suspicion surrounding the Cold War era. DEFCON was an
instantaneous success, receiving an average of 85%+ in game reviews
and scores of praise. PC Gamer UK described it as 'pure, deep,
utterly unconscionable fun', while IGN awarded DEFCON an Editors
Choice Award and praised it as 'highly impressive'.

DEFCON for the Mac is due to be released in March and will cost $25. For more, visit the official DEFCON web site.
