Apple Expo Paris is a serious date for French gamers, with a slew of localized French-game releases scheduled to reach market at the show.

For the first time, French gamers will be able to acquire localized French versions of the following titles: Civilization III; Medal of Honor; Clive Barker's Undying; Soldier of Fortune; The Sims: Hot Date; and The Sims: Vacation.

The Apple Expo focus on games has been reflected in the UK market, too. Sources at Softline – a leading UK Mac-games distributor – have confirmed that the recently announced The Sims: Vacation Expansion Pack has begun shipping in the UK, as have Star Wars Galactic Battleground; Soldier of Fortune 2 and FallOut 2.

It's also been confirmed that No One Lives Forever should ship in the next few days. More information for UK gamers is available from Softline.
