On April 16, Feral Interactive will ship the Mac World War II first-person shooter Brothers in Arms: Double Time, which includes Road to Hill 30 and Earned in Blood. The game puts players in charge of a squad of soldiers from the US Army’s 101st Airborne division as they fight their way through the D Day invasion and the tumultuous days that followed.
Based on a true story, Brothers in Arms puts players in the boots of fictional characters Sergeant Matt Baker and Corporal Joe Hartsock as they complete the historical Mission Albany, link up with the 82nd Airborne division, defend Hill 30, and more. In most missions, players control one or two one-to-three-man teams, each of which is a fire team or an assault team. A strategic view lets them issue orders, such as suppressive fire or find cover, before heading into combat.
Brothers in Arms is available for pre-order now for US$29.95. It requires an Intel Mac with Mac OS X version 10.5, a 1.8GHz processor, 1.5GB RAM, a 128MB video card, and 8GB of hard drive space. The latest MacBooks and Mac minis with nVidia 9400M video cards are supported.
