12:15 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
On Monday IMG ran a story where an Activision producer announced in a forum that a Mac version was in the works. Today, Aspyr has officially confirmed the Macintosh version of Star Trek: Elite Force II. Star Trek: Elite Force II is being developed by Ritual Entertainment, and the Macintosh conversion is being done by Westlake Interactive.
Here's more from the official PR:
After a brief prologue on the U.S.S. Voyager and a short stint at Starfleet Academy, the Hazard Team is assigned its toughest mission yet - duty onboard the Federation's renowned flagship, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701-E. Powered by id Software's QUAKE III: Team Arena engine, Star Trek Elite Force II permits players to break out of the confines of ship bulkheads and space station corridors, and undertake away team missions in open environments such as expansive alien landscapes, the void of space and deadly swamps. Additionally, players must master zero-gravity combat when they do battle on the hull of a starship. There's no word on when it will be released, but the PC version is slated to be released in June 2003.
Now set in the Star Trek: The Next Generation¨ universe, players can expect to face off against classic Star Trek antagonists such as the Borg, Klingons and Romulans. Players will also fight several never before seen alien species including a mysterious nightmare race. To help players gain the upper hand against such formidable foes, Star Trek Elite Force II allows players to arm themselves with 13 different weapons and gear including a phaserª, compression rifle, multi-functional grenade launcher, Romulan disruptor, tetryon gatling gun, a full-featured tricorderª, and several all-new weapons.
Over the course of the Star Trek Elite Force II, players will be able to explore different options or tactics when dealing with a threat, as opposed to being forced to pursue a particular path. Additionally, the game boasts a larger number of environments and a significantly longer gaming experience than the first Elite Force.
Star Trek Elite Force II marks the return of multiplayer Holomatch. Similar to the original game, Star Trek Elite Force II offers several multiplayer modes including modes found in the Elite Force Expansion Pack, but with new features and weapons like the Klingon Bat'Leth. Multiplayer modes include Holomatch, Capture The Flag, and Team Holomatch.
Aspyr also let us know that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003 for the Mac is now at Network Beta, meaning the internet code is now fully functional and in testing.
