Aspyr News: Project Updates, Universal Binaries
6:03 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In the company's latest newsletter Aspyr Media discusses the progress of the eagerly awaited Quake 4 and Civilization 4. Q4 is in final testing and "looking very good." Civ 4 is still in early development but progressing.

On the Intel Mac front Aspyr was happy to announce the upcoming release of Universal versions of some of their popular titles including the graphics intensive shooter Doom 3. Early testing of Doom 3 on an Intel iMac has resulted in "some great performance." Other games scheduled to receive Intel optimized versions include The Sims 2, Quake 4, and Knights of the Old Republic.

The newsletter also discusses current and upcoming refinements to Aspyr's support for their many game offerings. The company has been hard at work in the creation of a new and improved Aspyr Technical Support.

Here are some of the new features:

- Fully functional knowledge base that our users can now use to search out issues and answers

- Users can now create their own individual accounts so they can log and track tickets that they submit to Technical Support

- New Aspyr Support interface
Finally, the newsletter features the latest Meet Aspyr Q&A, this time interviewing Andrew Cook.
ASPYR: What has been your favorite work experience at Aspyr?

ANDY: Doing the TCRs on Stubbs was awesome. Not only did I meet a bunch of fantastic people, but I felt like I actually did something really important on the game. I got to learn a lot about the industry as well. Iíve been avidly playing games since I was 6 years old and to get a job at a company that makes them is a dream come true.
