Return to Castle Wolfenstein MPTest for Mac OS X
2:57 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Graeme Devine of id Software recently made a surprise update to his .plan file with news that there will be an OS X version of the upcoming Return to Castle Wolfenstein multiplayer test demo -- inadvertently revealing that this game is bound for the Mac OS. While the game uses the Quake 3 engine, and thus was considered a likely candidate for a port, there had been no official word from Activision or id on the matter before this. Devine has also commented in the past how much easier OS X is to build for, so it's not unsurprising to see them only releasing for this next-gen operating system -- at least for now.

In his .plan, Devine is refers to a one-level multiplayer test of Return to Castle Wolfenstein scheduled for release for the PC this Saturday. Here's the full update:

Mac stuff.

I've been playing the WolfMP test natively under Mac OS X. I've also got the OS X installer for WolfMP all wrapped up and standing by.

No other details have been released at this point as to whether there will also be an OS X installer included in the final version of the game. It seems likely Mac gamers will be able to just purchase the PC version and download a Mac OS X application to make it work (much like Mac users can do now with Quake 3 and its expansion). And while a version for OS 9 has also not been completely ruled out, we'll keep you posted if any plans are revealed. For more information on the game, check out the official web site and stay tuned to IMG.
