Summoner Screen Shots
10:20 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Typically, we don't consider screen shots alone to be news-worthy, but this new series of images of Volitions RPG Summoner posted by GameSpot are so significantly improved from previous ones that we have seen that they merit attention. This RPG, which was just released for the PlayStation 2, is coming to the Mac OS and Windows the middle of next year after Volition finishes adding multiplayer support -- not present in the console version.
The screen shots appear to be from the PS2 version; the Mac and PC versions will have the advantage of increased resolution and support for advanced graphics hardware such as the ATI Radeon and 3dfx Voodoo5 5500. Previous screen shots have had a slightly muddy, washed-out look; the sharp, crisp colors and improved lighting and textures of these shots make us eager to see the final version.

Early reviews of this title based on the PS2 version have voiced praise for the depth of story line and amazing special effects. We'll contact THQ/Volition for an update on the Mac and PC versions, and see if we can dig up some details on what exactly multiplayer support might add to the gameplay of this title. In the meantime, be sure and give those screen shots a glance, and visit the official Summoner site for more information.
