Aliens vs Predator Mac Due Soon
12:09 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Back in September, IMG reported that the much-delayed (and yet, much-anticipated) FPS Aliens versus Predator from the now-defunct Logicware would be ready around October 20th. Seeing as today is the 19th, we decided to check in with Bill "Burger" Heineman, the programer behind the Mac port, to see if this shooter was still going to make that date. Apparently things are going well, though don't look for it to be on store shelves tomorrow:
I expect to deliver a GM disk on that date [the 20th]. Judging by a few last minuteIf this actually happens, it will be great news for Mac fans anxious to play as one of the three races in the action/thriller AvP. A number of issues have slowed the title's Mac development, including adding OpenGL support and a software rendering engine, as well as enabling network compatibility with PCs using Microsoft's proprietary DirectPlay networking standard. Thanks to Bill for all of his hard work on the game. We'll keep you posted as AvP heads to actual production and nears release. For a blast from the past check out our Aliens vs. Predator preview, published over a year ago.
