IGN's Playstation 2 site has received four new screenshots of the upcoming 3D RPG, Summoner; this RPG is coming to Mac, PC and PS2 later this year. Summoner will feature impressive 3D graphics, RPG elements and a strong storyline. Head to IGN to check out the screen shots -- just be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page.
Looking through the Summoner forums, we found a tidbit about controlling the characters in the game. You will have to control the main character, Joseph, but it's also possible to micromanage others in your party. Here's a post from Volition's Nick Lee:
At any given time, you can directly control a single party member, including any creature you may have summoned. Other party members are AI controlled, although you can assign AI scripts to influence the behaviour of the party AI.Summoner is set to be released on the Mac this winter. Volition also plans to bring their upcoming FPS Red Faction to the Mac around the same time, so stay tuned.

If you want someone to stand back and heal others, you can assign the "healer" script to him. Or if you want a party member to jump into the fray swinging her weapon above her head, you can assign her the "melee attack" script. There will be a number of AI scripts for you to choose from which will allow you to tweak the party's behaviour to match whatever strategy suits your fancy.
