The Mac gaming community is about to be greeted by two hot new flight simulators. The MacGamer’s Ledge reports that Macsoft’s eagerly awaited port of Microprose’s aerial combat simulation Falcon 4.0 is now shipping to stores everywhere. Further, Terminal Reality/Gathering of Developers announced that their own breathtaking simulation Fly! has reached “completed code stage.”
As though that weren’t enough, an Apple press release describes other major game announcements recorded at last week’s E3 Expo in LA.
Apple Computer, Inc. today announced that the developers of highly-anticipated computer games such as Madden NFL 2000, TRIBES II and Star Wars Episode I: Pod Racer are releasing simultaneous Macintosh and Windows versions of their titles. This follows Apple’s announcement earlier this week that over 3,100 new or updated Macintosh software titles have been announced during the past 12 months. …
Other companies expected to announce or ship simultaneous releases of their game titles at E3 are: Deer Avenger II/Simon & Shuster, Diablo II/Blizzard Entertainment, Fly!/Gathering of Developers, Oni/Bungie Software, Quake 3: Arena/Id Software, Star Trek Deep Space Nine: The Fallen/Simon & Shuster and Star Wars: The Gungan Frontier/Lucas Learning. Many of these titles are being demonstrated throughout E3 and Apple’s latest products including iMac, Power Macintosh G3 and PowerBooks, are being showcased at the Apple booth (Number 4001, Petree Hall).
