Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Mac Screens, Beta Status

Apple Insider recently posted a collection of screenshots from the Mac version of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, currently in development at Aspyr Media. The Insider article also includes information on the current beta status of the game and Aspyr's history of porting titles using id Software game engines.

The Mac OS X version of Quake Wars remains the only planned distribution of the game not yet released, though the title is currently in the Alpha stage of development and undergoing optimization by Mac game publisher Aspyr Media, AppleInsider has learned.

The recent release of a Quake Wars 1.2 updater patch for the Windows version has hindered development of the game for the Mac somewhat, however, forcing Aspyr to match their current code to the new Windows version in the early stages of development. The 1.2 update delivers full VoIP communications support, user interface improvements and tweaks to improve the balance of the game.

Quake Wars is a graphically rich and varied game, which is more than enough to tax most systems. Aspyr has not yet released the minimum system requirements for the game, but it's suggested that owners of Intel Macs with a dedicated video card should have no issues running the title smoothly.
