Ubisoft released Thursday a demo version of Myst V: End of Ages for the Mac. The demo weighs in at 457 megabytes, and is being made available by MacGameFiles.com, though Ubisoft itself is hosting the FTP space.
According to a note at MacGameFiles, the download could proceed slowly, but additional mirrors will be added "shortly," as well as a BitTorrent link. In TMOis test, we saw 504k per second download speeds.
Requirements for the demo:
- Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher
- 1 GHz G4 or higher
- 256 MB RAM
- 32 MB video card (ATI® RADEON 7000/8000/9000/X families, NVIDIA® GeForce 256/2/3/4/FX/6000 families
The full version should be released at the end of September.
Thanks to our friends at Inside Mac Games for the heads up on the release.
