MacPlay will publish four games this summer, with two more promised in time for Christmas.

The sequel to Baldur's Gate – Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn – is about to enter the beta-testing stage, and should be released in time for Macworld Conference and Expo, held in New York from July 17-20.

Upcoming real-time strategy title, Sacrifice, will also be released in the summer. Giants: Citizen Kabyuto is also under development, and will be fully optimised for best results when played on a Mac equipped with an Nvidia GeForce 3 graphics card, says the company. MacPlay will also publish Fighter Squadron: The Screamin' Demons over Europe this summer.

Autumn releases will include the fantasy adventure Icewind Dale, which integrates the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons rulebook. The sci-fi starship adventure, Starfleet Command Volume II: Empires at War is also expected to ship in time for Christmas.

Prices for these titles remain unavailable. MacPlay titles are distributed by Softline in the UK.
