Feral Interactive has announced Tuesday, January 6th as the worldwide release date for the much-anticipated Mac version of Black&White® 2, the real-time, strategy sequel to the critically acclaimed hit Black&White®, one of the best-selling Mac games of all time. The release coincides with the opening of exhibits at Macworld Expo 2009 in San Francisco, Calif. where attendees can experience the game for themselves at the Feral booth.

Created by Lionhead Studios® and designers Peter Molyneux and Ron Millar, in Black&White 2 players reprise the role of a young god in search of followers and return to the once innocent world of Eden. However, times have moved on - weapons have been invented and humans have harnessed the forces of nature to terrible effect. Eden is in turmoil and the young God has been called back to save his people.

In addition, The Battle of the Gods expansion pack is included offering players a host of new challenges including the threat of a rival God.

"Black&White has achieved a phenomenal and long-lasting popularity on the Mac. We are confident that Black&White 2 will continue that success.” said Feral Interactive’s David Stephen.
