CodeWeavers, a developer of software products that turn Mac OS X and Linux into Windows-compatible operating systems, has announced the release of CrossOver Games for both Mac and Linux. The software allows gamers to play popular Windows games such as Guild Wars, and many Steam games including Team Fortress 2 and Counterstrike Source.
"One of the differences between CrossOver Games and our current CrossOver products is that it's going to be a little more 'bleeding edge'," said Jeremy White, President and CEO of CodeWeavers. "The Wine development community, including CodeWeavers, is cranking out a lot of important improvements to game support. We want to get those improvements into the hands of gamers now. CrossOver Games, we think, will fit in with the edgier technology needs of gamers."CrossOver Games is available for purchase directly from CodeWeavers and its authorized resellers. It is a download-only product and costs $39.95, a price which includes 12 months of free product support and software updates.
CrossOver Games features many recent game advancements developed in the open-source community. "This is our way of promoting the incredible work of the open-source community," said White. "It also marks a positional change in our product line. There's a perception that our products primarily make Windows office productivity applications run under our CrossOver products. The truth is, CrossOver also runs many popular games on Macs and Linux PCs as well."
