[8:30 AM] Descent 3 For Mac Shipping!
by Staff

Mac game fans can rejoice as the latest version of the Descent Empire is now shipping. Graphsim has announced that Descent 3 is now shipping and expects the title to be available in retail locations as early as this week. According to Graphsim:

Descent 3 for Mac is now shipping! Wednesday afternoon at about 3pm the first P.T.M.C. Pyro GL ship to come off of the assembly line burst out of the Graphic Simulations' office front door and headed for the shelves of Mac software retailers worldwide. By midweek, Descent 3 units will be available at your favorite retail stores.

Descent 3 is the pinnacle of the revolutionary Descent series that pioneered multiplayer gaming. Descent 3 for Mac features complete cross-platform multiplayer gaming allowing you to blast your PC (or Mac) brethren into oblivion. Mac gamers experience not only the same frenzied, subterranean shooting action, but also the thrill of flying out of the mines into the planetary atmosphere. Players soar above the surface of the planet, engage in combat with enemy air and ground forces, and use ten new, lethal weapons to obliterate the most sophisticated robots to date! From the innovative 360-degree, 3D technology to the new Fusion Engine, gamers face a new challenge as they attempt to conquer a new way to play first-person action games. Descent 3 for Mac requires hardware graphics support found in all current iMac and G3 computers (RagePro or greater graphics with 6 MB of video RAM, 64MB of RAM and 200MB of hard drive space).

You can find more information on Descent 3 at the company's web site. The title is priced at US$45.
